Did you know our Mom, and Grandma? If not you may have missed out on a great friendship, an everyday delightful experience, and a strong spirit to lean on when the times were rough. Let me fill you in on the details that many others know about her full and wonderful life.
She was born in Laurel, Montana; she quickly became known as Sally. She grew up with a brother Dave and sister Betty and hard working parents Mollie and George Fox. At 21, she had already married Raymond Hertzler and delivered her first child Wayne followed steadily by Cindy, Sherry, and Tim. But children were just a part of her increasingly busy life. As Sally was helping build a cattle ranch from scratch, playing piano for the local church and being part of all community activities. She became a great booster for the Absarokee High School, although she sometimes embarrassed the coaches with her load advice from the stands.
Sally was divorced in 1973 but continued ranch work and other new activities.
The year 1984, was a banner year in her life. A Wisconsin hunter, Jerry Schmalz, who came to Montana many times took his greatest trophy home, his new wife, Sally quickly became a loved addition to his large extended family. Like magic she gathered new friends. Bowling, painting, singing (Sweet Adelines) became part of her new life.
Jerry and Sally loved to travel and eventually visited all the US as well as far flung places such as Africa and Australia.
One place became their winter home, Yuma, AZ. The warm winters kept Sally busy golfing, swimming and attracting new friends from all over the Us and Canada. Jerry preceded Sally in death in 2008.
80 was just a number to Sally. Her capacity to keep her own yard, make presents, help friends and neighbors was inexhaustible. She seemed a far younger woman. Sally was never a burden to anyone but instead lifted many burdens for others. Sally's straight forward approach to life was a source of amusement to many but usually appreciated in its obvious sincerity.
A celebration of Life will take place on Tuesday, June 18, 2013, at Martens-Laemmrich Funeral Home, 312 Milwaukee Street, from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. with memories shared during that time. Sally will be inurned at a later date with her parents in Montana.
In Loving Memory November 8, 1932 - June 13, 2013.
