Sally loved dancing, fishing and being the life of the party. She could pull off clamming waders or a leopard print ensemble and stiletto heels with equal amounts of flair and grace. There was never a whipped cream dessert she couldn’t devour, but don’t ask to share. She will forever be remembered for her knack of gift giving, from the poignant to the hilarious. She spread laughter everywhere she went through her storytelling and her larger than life personality. Sally was a member of the Massachusetts Striped Bass Association and attended the Tri-State Tournaments of New England. Her sense of humor and warmth will be missed by all of her friends there.
