On the early morning of Sept. 8, Sally’s son Catarino reached out his hand and guided her through the gates of Heaven. She now smiles down and watches over the love of her life of 35 years, Richard, best friend LittleBit, her three daughters, Sandy, Cindy and Becky, son-in-law Gary, 16 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren along with her three sisters Lilian, Irene and Virgie and her brother Richard.

Although she’s no longer physically with us, the unconditional love, happiness and red lipstick kisses she showered her family with all of their lives will always stay as beautiful memories for all. She was a beautiful, strong and amazing mother and father for her daughters and son and the best “Grams” anyone could ask for. Her love will live on strong and unfading in our hearts forever. 

Services will be held in Parlier, Calif. on Friday, Oct. 20, 2023 at 11 a.m. at the Parlier Cemetery, 7932 Mendocino Ave.
