Sally was a daughter of the Prairies. She was very proud of her Romanian heritage and the qualities that it represented, strength, courage and a taste of adventure. Sally was a natural leader, and an intelligent, caring individual who possessed practical wisdom. She was a mentor to many, an inspiration to others and a devoted family woman.
