    Sally, known with deep affection as Aunt Ta, enjoyed her close knit family above all else. Family was really what Sally was all about. I was so impressed with the closeness of the Finn/Hill families and their extended families; family reunions, holiday gatherings, any occasion to get together were central to Sally's life. She was quick to smile, extend a warm hug or kiss and could laugh
    til tears flowed. Sally had a very generous nature, was close to her sister, Arlene, and brothers, Mickey and Dann, and proud as any aunt could be of her nieces and nephews and the families they would go on to have.
    My deepest condolences go to Dann and to all of Sally's loved ones, and you are many. And you were so fortunate to have Aunt Ta in your life.

    Sincere condolences to Dann and family on the loss of Sally. I will always have fond memories of her kind heart, wonderful sense of humour, loving ways and close relationship she had with our Mom. My kids and I still laugh about the time they visited in Germany and when I got up from sitting at a picnic table with Art and Sally, like in slow motion, ever so slowly, they flipped backwards. Thankfully no damage done, but we always laughed with her about it. Rest in peace my dear cousin. I know that you still have your camera with you and are getting everyone together for another picture!
