She was a member of Torrey Pines Christian Church, and in her later life enjoyed learning to play the organ and composing music. She also had a passion for needlepoint and gifted her friends with many intricate homemade creations.

She is survived by her two daughters, one son-in-law, three grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. She was preceded in death by her husband of 66 years, Trumbull.

A memorial service will be held at the White Sands, 7450 Olivetas St. in La Jolla, at a time to be determined. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Sallie’s name to Smile Train, The Special Olympics, or Doctors Without Borders.
