To Sally&s family,

I knew Sally in the 80s and early 90s when I was director of education at Crow Canyon. She was one of my favorite regulars and I always looked forward to her visits to our campus. I think her name should have been Sally Spunk, for spunky she was. I saw her a few times after, once when she joined my husband and me for breakfast at our home and once in an airport where she was making her way, walker and all, to the next gate. She was a delight and I will always think fondly of her.

I had the extreme pleasure of knowing Sally for the past 17 years here at Crow Canyon in Cortez, Colorado. She was a fabulous participant in our research and we all took great pride in the fact that she was one of our longest running participants in the archaeological field. I believe Sally was 88 when she finally and reluctantly decided her digging days were over. She was getting out of an excavation area one day and stumbled a little bit and ended up breaking two ribs. It was so hard for her not to laugh at herself for being ""clumsy"" and even harder for all of us who wanted to hug her for her misfortune.

We had regular phone conversations when she lived in Boise and then again when she moved to Indiana. She always wanted to know the ""news around Crow Canyon"" which meant she was interested in the people and the work. We developed such a close friendship over the years and she always asked how my mom (age 93) was doing and advised her not to complain since she was so much younger than Sally!

I will truly miss her and many more here at Crow Canyon will too. My heart is heavy in hearing of her passing, but I am so thankful and truly blessed to have known her so well for so long.

To Sally&s family - I appreciated that you placed an obituary in the Boise paper. I knew Sally -- not well, but I did know her. We both attended First Pres in Boise. However, the main connection I felt to Sally was her friendship with my mother, Stephaney Gottschling. The two of them did a lot of walking/hiking around Boise -- my mother always spoke of how she so very much enjoyed her walks and visits with Sally. They both had a strong love of the outdoors and nature. My mother also passed away a few months ago. She had asked me several times in the recent past if I knew anything about Sally. So, it is with nostalgia that I think of Sally - and the happy, fond part that she played in my mother&s life.
