Sally spent her childhood in Columbia, MO and graduated from Hickman High school where she excelled in athletic and school activities including membership in GAA, art and music groups. Sally and husband Gene moved to Kirksville, MO in 1953 where she was a loving mother raising her children while being socially active in the community, including membership at the Kirksville Country Club, and doing various volunteer work.
