We shared many great times and memories with Sally and our parents cherished their friendship with both Sally and John Walsh. She was genuine, funny, kind and it always good to see her when we were in town. What a wonderful life she lived and she loved her family and friends. Prayers for the Walsh family. The Kunk Family

I was very sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom, Grandma and Great Grandma. Sally was friends with my Aunt Dode Henson and Aunt Marge Ainge and Sally hired me to cut her grass every week when I was in grade school. She was such a nice lady and I always enjoyed our conversations. I'm so sorry for your loss but also celebrate her wonderful life of 101 years. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
