Sally found a friend in everyone and everyone found a
friend in her.

player. Sally embraced the true meaning of spirit
inspiring everyone she coached. She graduated from
North Texas State University as a physical education
teacher. Sally instilled in her students a desire to
succeed and never give up.
Halloween was one of her favorite holidays. She dressed
up as the "wicked witch" and delighted children from
California to Terrell, Texas, and all knew her as the
popcorn ball lady... the house not to miss!

years. She is survived by John Thomas, her children
