Sally Salsgiver, 76, of Clarendon, Pa., passed away Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2018, at J.W. Ruby Hospital, Morgantown, WVa., surrounded by her family and friends.
She was born Nov. 20, 1941, in Warren, Pa., the daughter of the late Frank E. and Myrtle Thomas Wingard.
Sally was a member of the Pleasant Volunteer Fire Department, attended St. Clair’s Catholic Church in Clarendon and was a member of various clubs/ social halls in her community.
Sally’s main priority was raising and caring for her family. She especially enjoyed looking after her grandchildren and spending as much time with them as possible. She opened her heart, home and kitchen to everyone. Anyone who knows Sally knows her as an avid bingo player, a lover of cooking, playing cards and socializing and volunteering at the Allegheny Community Center. Sally had a generous heart of gold and truly loved everyone she encountered. She was always making new friends.
Sally is survived by her son: Kenneth “Bubs” (Dawn Marie) Salsgiver; four daughters: Tina (Mike Scott) Nary, Sherry (Steve) Nowell, Tonija (Greg) Senyo and Deby Guzman; her sister-in-law, Merle Wingard and her daughter, Susan (Dave) Ward (a very special niece); 19 grandchildren; 11 great- grandchildren and one great-grandchild on the way; several nieces, nephews and cousins; and her longtime companion Beagle dog, Webster.

Friends may call on Sunday, Sept. 9, from 2-4 p.m., at Inter-Faith Chapel of Warren, 33 Main Drive, Warren, Pa.
The family will hold a private service at a later date.
