Hurt, she is survived by her husband Bill, her three children James (Eve-Lynne), Douglas (Bernadette Glenn) and Elizabeth Murray (Mike Bartee), her three step-daughters Kelley Purnell (Mark), Kathleen Constance "KC" Hurt, and Courtney MacMillan (Terry), and her 15 grandchildren and step-grandchildren.

Sally attended UC Berkeley and was a graduate of San Francisco State University with a dual BA in Anthropology and Urban Planning, 1969, and earned an MFA from Claremont Graduate University of Art, 1985. She worked as an artist for three decades with various group and solo shows.

She will be greatly missed by her family and friends. A family Memorial has already been held. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Children's Hospital, Los Angeles.
