Sallee trained me in the billing department at JBS. We worked side by side every day. She was full of smiles, even when she wasnt feeling the best. I was craving apple crisp and the next day she brought me in apple crisp that she made for Bill and I. She will be truly missed by so many of us. God received a special angel yesterday. Spread your wings Ms. Sallee, you are no longer suffering.

I first met Sallee when I was about 12, because I was friends with her son, Chad. Over the years she grew into more of a family member to me than my own blood. My heart goes out to Chad, Candyce, Bill, and the rest of the family. She was taken way too soon, and will be dearly missed. b
My sister, my friend, actually my aunt, two months apart in birthdays, a women full of support for everyone, I will miss you terribly. Your life was dedicated to your family. You are an angel in this world and are an angel in the next. It is my honor and privilege to be your family, your friend, your confident. b

I remember Sallee always bringing some sort of plant to Don&Connie's for Don to plant because she knew that her brother has a green thumb.She had a great smile & an infectious laugh. I didnt see her much but was always glad when I did. GOD Bless Sallee's family. She is now in GOD'S hands & is free of all pain.
