Sally was called home by her Heavenly Father Monday evening while sleeping peacefully. Age 88 at the time of her passing, Sally lived a full life. She was born on New Year’s Eve in Ossining, NY to Clifford J. and Beatrice Miller. She was an educator with a passion to serve children with special needs. A convert to the LDS church, Sally served in various callings throughout her life including as a Stake Missionary, Young Women’s President, Primary teacher, and in the Relief Society presidency. Her church family knew her as ‘Grandma Sally.’ She was also referred to as ‘the missionary mom'; a nickname she was given for writing hundreds of letters to the missionaries in her church.
Sally had a passion for BYU football and watched each game faithfully, coaching the players from her couch. She even managed to attend a few games in the latter years of her life.
Even as she aged, Sally never forgot to send confetti-filled birthday and anniversary cards to her loved ones, which many will now miss.
Sally was preceded in death by her parents, her two brothers and one sister; she is now reunited with them. Sally is survived by her three children Larry (New York), Debi (Utah), and Megan (Georgia); six grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
Her family wishes to extend heartfelt gratitude to Sally’s friends and church family who provided love and support throughout her life, especially during these latter years. Additionally, her family wishes to thank Dr. Joshua Oaks, Atlas Home Health, Elevation Hospice, and Cascades at Riverwalk Nursing Facility for providing care and comfort for Sally through her final days with us.
It brings us great peace knowing our beloved mother and 'Nanny' is in the arms of her Father in Heaven and is now blissfully happy for eternity.
The family wishes to extend an invitation to a brief graveside service, Friday, January 27, 11:00am, at Myers Evergreen Memorial Park, 100 N. Monroe Blvd., Ogden, Utah.
