During a lengthy bout with Alzheimer's, Sally asked that when she passed away she wanted all the names of her family to be acknowledged. As the sixth child of nine, Sally had 5 brothers and 3 sisters: The Late brothers: Benny, Henry, Billy Jo, Dale and Cecil Weaver; sisters: Dorothy Busby and Ruby Dement. Sally was loved and adored by her entire family and remained active as an avid golfer and enjoyed her daily walks, until she fell in 2008. She was originally from Bossier Parish and after her first husband, Bill Chandler passed away (1970), she re-married and moved to Arlington, Texas in 1975. Her husband, Gene Clements passed away in 2005. She is also survived by twenty nieces/nephews.
Sally began working as a young teenager during World War II, at the Louisiana Ammunition Plant. In the early 1960's, she entered a long, successful career path at Bossier Bank and Trust and retired from Arlington National Bank of Texas, as a loan officer. After retirement, she and her husband traveled, took cruises and played golf. Together, they both began selling furniture (Wickes), until he passed away. When Sally became ill in 2009, she was moved back home to Bossier City, by her loving family.
Family visitation will be at 1:00 p.m. and service at 2:00 p.m. @ Hillcrest Memorial, 601 Hwy. 80 East, Haughton, Louisiana 71037.
The family would like to say a special thanks to: Dr. Mike Sewell, Glenview Retirement Community, Willis Knighton and Always Best Care Hospice, Tyler Kimbell (for taking such good care of his grandmother).
