Sally was passionate about many things, including gardening with flowers, sewing, and breeding and training boxer dogs. She was a founding member of the Tupelo Kennel Club, and a long-time member of the American Boxer Club. She had a deep love of animals as she had many pedigree boxer pets over the course of her life. She realized the sacredness of all God’s creatures. She loved the zest of life and took great pleasure in educating others with her vast experience and knowledge with dog training and breeding as well as gardening. Sally loved spending time collecting dolls and was a member of the United Federation of Doll Clubs. Most important was her endless love for her loving soulmate and husband, Bob Mosier.
