    Remembering an awesome sister. In addition to being an entreprener and a great Mema, she was a knitter of fun blankets, a baker of awesome desserts, such as cottage cookies, and a watcher of Hallmark (Christmas movies and When Calls the Heart were some of her favorites).

    Hugs to all. Love, Mary Furniss

    I have incredible memories from being at the cottage at a young age. Aunt Sally was at so many family functions and was such a memorable part of my childhood 💜 She will be greatly missed! What a kind woman!
