DEERFIELD, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Today lets remember a savvy, full of wit, silly as all get out, stubborn and ornery blonde.

Sally, A nickname given to her by her father was born on December 3, 1932.

She loved driving bus for Southeast School District, working as a dispatcher for Portage County Sheriff’s Department and many other various occupations.

Even at the seasoned age of 88, Sally never forgot a birthday. She made sure to show her affection through what she could; whether it was a card, donations or relentless advice and opinions.

Sally was preceded in death by her parents, John and Cora Ruth Hormell; amazing and loving husband, Charles M. Devine; two just as ornery brothers, John (Judy) Hormell, aka. Tick and Glenn (Velma) Hormell, aka. Duke.

Sally leaves behind her devoted pets: her dog, Jazzy and her cat, Izzy; brother and best friend, Richard, you can call him Dick Hormell and a daughter, Debra (Mike) Smith. She is known as granny to three adoring grandchildren, Chris (Lori), Angie and Jodi (Cubby) Robinson. She also has ten great-grandchildren and 11.5 great-great-grandchildren; making her proud to enjoy five generations of her genes in her lifetime.

To those who knew Sally, there was always laughter, a smile, or a raised eyebrow to the outrageous things she would utter.
