Sally was the daughter of my parents dear friends, Pat and Josephine Barry. Tom and Ev Marron lived near my parents and, interestingly enough are still near them at Oak Hill. Each time I visit my mom, dad and brothers grave, I always stop over to see if Tom and Ev need anything.
Sally was a beautiful lady and even more beautiful now.
With deep sympathy,
Patsy Barry

Sally was a valued friend and co-worker. Very respected and professional, one of the first women farm loan officers in the industry. Have wonderful memories.

She was a lovely lady and back in the earlier days we had a lot of fun. I'm sure she's more than happy to join Jack. Love to all the family.

Jack, Julie and Jill, so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was a beautiful person inside and out. So glad Chris, Jim and I got to have a nice visit with her a couple of years ago. Please know you and your families are in my thoughts and prayers. Much love to you all!

As a child I went to Taylorville, from Michigan, every summer with my parents. Sally (and Jack....and the kids) were a big part of those visits. Listening to the stories my dad and Sally would tell about their childhood were so "far-fetched" they were not to be believed, until Uncle Tom and Aunt Ev piped up and gave their stories validity. Sally always had the best laugh and a smile that never ended. Once I got older, and we didn't go every summer, I have only seen her a handful of times, but that smile and laugh will be dearly missed, along with the wonderful woman who goes with them.
I love you Sally.

I remember Sally from the First Trust Bank. Always with a smile on her face and always pleasant to deal with. A real classy professional.
