LEWISVILLE, Texas - Sarah Emily "Sally" Sanders of Lewisville, Texas, passed away on Wednesday, April 9, 2014.
She was born in Salem, Ohio, on July 3, 1942, to the late Elizabeth (Bebe) and Robert Snyder.
Sally graduated from Salem High School in 1960 and was a National Merit Scholar. She began her college education at Denison University in Granville, Ohio, where she was a member of Pi Beta Phi Sorority. She completed her bachelor's of science degree summa cum laude at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.
Sally married Jack T. Sanders on Nov. 24, 1961.
Although her academic background was in clinical psychology, her forte was numbers and she always gravitated to positions that employed that ability. She acquired a number of titles and accolades ranging from office accountant to senior staffer, controller, and chief financial officer.
She is survived by her husband of 53 years; a son, Jay Benton Sanders of Chicago; a daughter, Katherine Elizabeth Sanders of Dallas; a brother, Robert B. Snyder of North Barrington, Ill.; and a sister, Susan E. Stoddard of Beloit, Ohio.
A memorial "Celebration of Life" service is planned for later in the year in Salem, Ohio.
