My Grammy Sally was a truly amazing and wonderful mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend to all. She was an inspiration and someone to be admired. Someone that many looked up to and could always count on. She had a fiery, stubborn tenacious spirit about her but was also the most genuinely caring and kind person that I have ever known. She had many passions which included knitting (prior to her stroke) playing cards, volunteering at the COA, watching NASCAR and cheering for the Red Sox. Her greatest passion however was spending quality time with the people that she loved and adored. She was definitely a fighter and she fought hard to stay with her loved ones for as long as she could. We cherished every minute and every phone call with her. My Gram's legacy will live on in the other strong willed, stubborn woman of this family and her memory will live on in all who had the pleasure to truly know her.
Friends may call on Tuesday (July 27, 2021) from 1 until 3 PM to the O'Neill Funeral Home, 59 Peirce Street (corner of School Street) Middleboro.
