Jones, Sally - Wellesley  
Jones, Sally, 86, formerly of Wellesley Hills and most recently of Needham, died June 6, 2015 with her family by her side. Her husband Proctor Jones preceded her in December 2010. Born on August 28, 1928 in Savannah, Georgia, the daughter of Marion Patterson Browne of Savannah, Georgia and Allen Brownie Browne of Lewiston, Maine, Sally grew up her early years in Savannah and Lewiston in her teens, before attending Westbrook Junior College. When the children were growing up Sally enjoyed bowling with close friends, card games, curling across the US and Canada, 9-hole golf, throwing dinner parties and even transcendental meditation in its early years. And, much to the dismay of her friends at North Hill she played a mean Bingo. Growing up she loved to dance to the big bands, learned piano as a young mother and in recent years spent Friday afternoons enjoying Boston Symphony Orchestra performances. Sally was someone who enjoyed the simpler things in life | coffee and laughter with a girlfriend, finding the perfect birthday card, crossword puzzles with family, watching Jeopardy, soaking up the sun from Georgia to Maine to Cape Cod to California to Paris and Nice, and flowers of all kinds -- especially daisies. Above all she enjoyed simply hanging out with her children and grandchildren, visiting and telling stories together. Sally is survived by her daughter, Stephanie Schweighofer-Jones of Los Gatos, CA and Mark Jones and his wife Bernadette of North Attleboro, MA. She is the proud grandmother of Dominique Sally Marie Schweighofer, Claire Yvan Proctor Schweighofer, Ian Jones and Lincoln Jones. She is also survived by her brother-in-law Clark Collins of New London, NH and aunt to Chuck Collins and Laurie Collins. The funeral service will be held at the Wellesley Hills Congregational Church, 207 Washington Street, Wellesley Hills, Saturday, June 27 at 10am, followed by interment at Woodlawn Cemetary, Wellesley and a reception at North Hill, 865 Central Avenue in Needham. Relatives and friends are kindly invited. Visitation at the George F. Doherty & Sons Funeral Home, 477 Washington Street, Wellesley on Friday June 26, 4-7pm. In lieu of flowers, gifts can be directed to the American Cancer Society in the name of Sally Browne Jones. For directions and guest book, www.gfdoherty.com .

May, Virginia  
Virginia Saam May of Needham, a longtime resident of Wellesley, died recently at the North Hill Skilled Nursing Facility. She was 95. Mrs. May was universally known as Schotzie to her many friends, a nickname given to her by her father. She lived in Wellesley for more than 30 years. She was born in Eveleth, Minn., but her family soon moved to the San Francisco Bay Area. At the age of 9, Virginia Saam was pictured on the front page of the Oakland Tribune under a headline that read Thinks Fast. The story, which ran inside the newspaper, was headlined Child Saves Art Treasures and told how young Virginia used her quick wit and awakened her parents when she smelled smoke in an adjacent apartment. Her parents then summoned the fire department. Virginia married Albert S. May | known as Bud or Big Al - on March 15, 1942. The two met as undergraduates at the University of California, Berkeley. Mrs. May received a degree in political science from the university and, after World War II, moved to Wellesley when her husband settled in the area to run a wholesale floor covering business in Boston. Mrs. May quickly became a Boston sports fan, often accompanying her husband to Boston Bruins games and the Beanpot Hockey Tournament. She was known to organize neighborhood friends to watch the World Series, where they would keep score on the cardboard that came from the laundry with their husbands shirts. She more than once allowed her children to skip school for Opening Day at Fenway Park. She was a member of the Wellesley Country Club, where she was a determined golfer. Mrs. May also attended St. Andrews Episcopal Church and worked at The Mahogany Shop and The Stitchery. She moved to Moultonborough, New Hampshire and then to Palm Coast, Florida, before settling at North Hill with her husband in 2002. Her husband preceded her in death in 2005. Mrs. May is survived by her three sons; Albert S. May Jr., of Elbridge, N.Y., Peter of Wellesley and Andrew of San Diego; a daughter, Eleanor Byrnes of Geneva, Ill., 10 grandchildren and three great grandchild. Donations may be made to a charity of ones own choosing in Mrs. Mays name.
