    We will surely miss Sally in our ward. Condolences to her family.

    • I was so sad to hear of Sally’s passing! My daughter and I enjoyed our visits with her and will remember her smile and spunk forever. ❤️

  • I was deeply saddened by the passing of Sally. I was her Visiting Teacher for 5 years. I took her to many of her chemotherapy and radiation and doctor visits. She was so brave and a stalwart facing her cancer living away from her family. She was so elated when she was told she was cancer free. We all rejoiced with her. Our Heavenly Father was merciful to Sally taking her quickly after her cancer reappeared. I will miss our visits and talks. Love you Sally

  • Oh Sally… My heart dropped when I heard of your passing. You and I have had so many beautiful memories that we have shared together. Bingo nights, showcasing jewelry, singing by the organ and more recently, humming and rubbing your back to provide you comfort so that you can sleep. Your wisdom and encouragement, from a spiritually mismatched marriage have made me laugh and brought me to tears. Each little “gem” written in a journal – As wonderful advice and encouragement- Thank you for allowing me into those special stories and memories of your life.
    I will make sure to stay on Doug – to get you and your darling husband, sealed in the temple. This i promise you.
    Tonight, I am filled with joy and peace – knowing you are no longer in pain, and are reunited with your husband and your mother and father.
    I am Looking forward to the day of resurrection, when I will get to embrace you again. Until then – please keep a careful watch over me – as you do your “errands” up there. Much love to you – Sally Lynn – Xo

    Sally was a dear friend of our family. We had many wonderful visits and get togethers and talks on the phone. Sally was such a wonderful friend when my husband was in the hospital. She came and visited and brought me bottle water, food and a blanket so I would be warm. This was so appreciated as it was cold in the hospital! She even took me out to lunch one day. It was nice to have some great company and conversation and leave my worries behind for awhile. These are just some example of how Sally served our family. She had a wonderful smile and was so appreciated of any service given to her. We shared a love of butterflies and music. We are so happy she was able to be part of our family gathering after our daughters mission homecoming in February. She was a bright light in our lives and will be greatly missed. We want to express our deepest sympathy to her family and friends. Love The Byington family

  • Condolences to the friends and family of Mrs. Sally Moran. Although I never met her, she sounds like an incredible woman, and there is no doubt that if she was anything like her son, Douglass, she absolutely brought a SMILE to everyone she met! 🙂

    Sally’s passing has left an empty place in my heart.. her talents were amazing. I always wanted her to teach me her beading skills, they were truly a work of art. I miss our many chats and will miss seeing her in church, regardless of how she felt. He strength gives me encouragement and hope for a better life ahead. She is paving the way for us to follow… you will always be a wonderful memory and may God bless the family and see them through these difficult times. I love you my sweet friend and sister…

    Sally was such a sweet lady. Last month I brought her dinner one night when she wasn’t feeling well. After she ate, she was so sweet and called me back & thanked me for bringing her dinner. She also complimented my cooking, which totally made my night!!
    My thoughts & prayers are with her family during this time :).

  • You and your fiesty attitude will be missed by all of us who know and love you!

  • I was blessed to know Sally through the honor of being her ministering sister. My husband Dave and my son Mason were her ministering brothers. We had regular visits over the phone, in her home, at my home, and various outings together. I always admired her spunk and determination. She knew what she wanted and she loved to laugh. Her creations of jewelry, scarves, and other crafts always impressed me. She used her time to connect with other people, learn new things, and loved studying the gospel of Jesus Christ. She spoke highly of all who served her and appreciated the loving and loyal friendships she shared. She adored her family and loved giving updates of how everyone was doing. She was especially excited when Doug called her (from Alabama, she thought) and asked her to open her garage door. She was so surprised and elated to see Doug standing there on her driveway and she jumped up into his arms. That was a special moment for her. She was proud of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren and loved hearing from them. I always admired her tenacity and grit, her strength and courage, and her love of life. She could make anyone laugh and loved to joke around. She had a love of food and wanted others to experience her “favorites” too. Jersey Mike’s roast beef sandwich was one of them. Anyone who drove her to appointments knew she was like a streamlined navigation system with specific routes predetermined and regular reminder prompts along the way. Sally loved her flowers, particularly her roses. She had a variety of colors around her yard and enjoyed their ongoing beautiful big blooms. She loved visits from children and was particularly grateful for the youth of the ward who came regularly to help move her furniture, carol, drop off treats, and visit. Sally regularly uplifted others and had an impact for good on all who knew her. I have no doubt she’s already started her work beyond the veil and is moving everyone along to “get things done.” She was a doer, a light, and a gift to all of us. She was cherished and she will be missed tremendously. Our hearts are with her family and friends who also mourn her passing. We love you sweet, sassy, spunky Sally!

  • Dear Sally! She will be missed. She had such a feisty spirit about her. I’m so glad I decide to go to the last stake conference’s Saturday evening session. I was so happy to see her, give her a big hug and chat for awhile. Walking her back to her car she shared funny stories about her being so “old”! No she wasn’t! She was so young at heart! I’m so sad I couldn’t attend her service. I hope she felt my ALOHA! Sally I will miss you, until we meet again! Love you Sally!! Our aloha to your family and friends. ????
