Sally attended South Gibson school. Throughout her life, she did amazing crafts, including bead necklaces, painting pictures, and crocheting. She loved music, three colored cats, and riding her four wheeler. She had a fantastic memory; she would remember everyone's names, dates of birth, and the names of their children. Sally had a genuine love of everyone and everyone loved her. She especially enjoyed planting evergreen trees on the family farm. She also made it her mission to eliminate the invasive species of multi floral roses. She was lovingly known as "the Ambassador of East Mountain." Sally loved the Lord and prayed each day for her family and many friends.

She is survived by a sister: Jean Kneiss and husband, Peter of Slingerlands, NY; two nephews: Aaron Kneiss and wife, Nancy of Winchester, MA and Ryan Kneiss and wife, Natasha of Athens, Greece; six great nieces and great nephews: Mark, Alex, Eric, Chloe, Isaac and Sonia Kneiss; many cousins.
