Sally graduated from Kern Union High School in 1948. She held several jobs, but mostly talked about her job at JC Penney on Chester Avenue, as an elevator operator, and her job at the Kern County Assessor's Office, where she was able to work with her mother. The last job she had was the most important job, being a housewife and mother. She loved her family very much. Many fond memories were made every summer at the Greenhorn Mountain Cabin. She also enjoyed gardening, reading, attending Navy League dinners with Gail, and camping with the family. The last few months of her life were spent at Pacifica Senior Living, where she was well taken care of and, made good friends.
