Sally spent most of her life growing up in Texas City, TX.  Sally and Jack were high school sweethearts.  They later married and moved to Houston, TX where they became parents of twin boys.  This was the first of many moves throughout their lives together.

Sally loved playing bridge and tennis.  She was an excellent cook and hostess.  She loved to travel.  She was always ready for an adventure.  She and Jack enjoyed many trips abroad and at home together.

She was always involved in her community wherever she lived. Hi-Neighbor Club, active with the wives of the Texas City Jaycees, the Huntington Beach Youth Shelter and the Orange County Philharmonic Society were a few of the community activities she participated in.
