(Full-size photo)

(Age 56)

Passed away from the devastating effects of cancer. She was born in Newport, WA July 23, 1956. Sally spent many of her “formative” years with her family there. She is survived by her two brothers Jeff and Bill Storms, mother Delores Storms, her two adult children, Jeffrey and Jeri Ward, and her grandson Christian. Her father, William “Bumpy” Storms preceded her in death. She leaves behind her loving husband, Bill Martin, whom she lived with at Sacheen Lake. Sally was a nurse at St. Joseph Care Center and Holy Family Hospital. She loved and was loved by both patients and staff.

Sally will always be known as “grandma dogs” to many in the family. She loved picking huckleberries with her mom, walking her dogs, Prissy Snodgrass and Boo, and going to the casino, where she was luckier than most. She loved all of her family, first and foremost, they were a priority to her. She fought hard to stay alive, to the last breath.

Sally leaves behind many fond memories for family and friends. Please send any donations to the lung cancer alliance or Partners for Pets.

SHERMAN-KNAPP FUNERAL HOME IN NEWPORT is in charge of arrangements. Family and friends are invited to sign the online guest book at
