Messages of Sympathy

  1. Judy Austin says:

    Sally was a wonderful teacher at my Montessori school. The students were very lucky to have her as their teacher. She had such a loving, caring way with children. She was a good friend to me and a devoted member of my church, Westminster Presbyterian. I have so many wonderful things to say about my friend Sally that I just can’t write them all down but one thing is she had boundless and positive energy. I will really miss her.

  2. Terri and Michelle Lauricella says:

    Sally was a wonderful mother-in-law and grandmother. She made every holiday a special one for the grandkids, and we were so blessed to have her in our lives. She will be missed!

  3. Cheryl and Jay Lugenbill says:

    Sally was a loving and kind woman. We first met her as our daughter, Grace’s first Montessori teacher. She continued to support her through her encouragement at church. Sally understood that it takes a village to raise children and helped us do that. She will be missed just as Frank is at church where her joy and love of others was evident.

    Thank you for trusting Johnson Funeral Home with her arrangements.
