Sally was asked to go to a school dance with Jim Lindsay, they became high school sweethearts and then they married in May of 1953. They resided in Medina where they raised their family. Sally’s greatest joy was being with her family.

She was a devoted wife and mother. She was very involved as a parent and was always there to lead a Brownie/Girl Scout/Boy Scout troop activity, go camping or help out in some other way and she was always available to babysit and quite often cared for her grandchildren during the summers when they were younger. In her later years she enjoyed reading, watching TV and seeing the world pass by her huge picture window. Sally was a member of the Grove United Methodist Church in Medina.
