Sally was a product of the Great Depression. She left school in the third grade to help support her family. She worked as a seamstress at Fort Sam Houston during WWII, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Her love and dedication to her friends, family (and wrestling) was known by all who knew her. She was a friend to all and a stranger to none.
The family would like to express their gratitude to the Firemen and EMS Technicians for their response and to all the emergency room staff at Southwest General Hospital for their compassion and kindness during this difficult and trying experience.
