She served as the "VISTA DEL A¥O" yearbook advisor for almost every year and she was an advisor to many groups in the annual "Rhythmares" show.Sally retired from teaching in 1983 and vigorously pursued gardening, reading and cooking, three of her greatest passions. When Ted became the General Manager of Hemet West Mobile Estates, Sally served as Recording Secretary but she was fondly known by residents as "The Plant Lady". Knowing the botanical and common names of practically every plant, tree and shrub on the planet, Sally drew up planting instructions for the maintenance staff which had Hemet West flowerbeds looking like Disneyland on its' best day. An avid reader, Sally could easily breeze through two books per week and most of what she'd read was donated to the library Hemet West.Before there was a Food Network, Sally was into creating fascinating appetizers and desserts with spectacular presentations. The Lindberg's After Christmas Party, usually held the first weekend after New Year's Day was always a hit and there is no way anyone ever left hungry or thirsty.Sally assisted Ted with many community service projects with The East Whittier Lions Club, especially the Upton Whittier Festival.Whether she was known as a teacher, colleague, volunteer, relative or friend, Sally Lindberg left an indelible impression on a significant number of lives.
