Sally enjoyed traveling with Samuel and they went many places together, including Mexico, Spain, and other European countries.  She was known for helping her neighbors (especially with their mending) and always wore an apron with candy in the pockets.  She loved dancing at family reunions and enjoyed going to casinos (and her scratcher tickets.)

Sally was preceded in death by her husband, Samuel; a son, Albert Lopez; a grandson, Nick Ornellas; and two brothers, Joe Baptiste and Jesse Baptiste.  She is survived by four children:  Samuel Lopez, Jr., George Lopez, Esther Margrave, and Lisa Herman; grandchildren:  Sam, Jovita, Michael, Brian, Rebecca, Donovan, Christina, and Damien; many great grandchildren; brothers, Peter Baptiste and Frank Baptist; a sister, Paulene Vandeputte; and many nieces and nephews.

Sally will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
