Sally also worked as a legal secretary later in life.  In her earlier years she enjoyed vacationing in Minnesota, fishing with her husband and children.  She enjoyed reading, having lunch and up until last week was still meeting with her group of longtime friends.  Sally has been a member of Cedar Hills Community Church since 1962, she was an avid prayer warrior and loved her Lord. Her faith was her pillar and strength, and she shared it often with others. Sally had a strong relationship with chocolate and always may sure she had treats for the staff at the care center. Sally’s greatest passion and joy was spending time with her grandchildren and family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, son, Paul and brother, Elliott “Shady” Day.

Left to cherish Sally’s memories are her daughter, Lisa (Pat) Kress of Hiawatha; six grandchildren, Courtnie Bartosh, Connor Bartosh, Grant Donnan, Michael Donnan, Kailey (Matthew, Olivia, Camilla) Hill and Sarah Kress.

Memorials may be directed to Cedar Hills Community Church or Susan G. Komen Foundation in Sally’s name.

The family would like to especially thank Westridge Care Center, new friends that Sally made there, and the wonderful care they gave her. For that we are truly grateful.
