Sally Garland Foulks, age 85, died in Londonderry on Sunday, August 6, surrounded by her loving family. Sally was an inspiration and encourager for everyone and will be missed very much. Sally was born August 10, 1931, in Arkansas City, Kansas, to John and Marianne Garland, the oldest of four children. A sister, Susanne Evans, and twin brothers, Jepson and John Garland followed.

Sally married during her sophomore year at Kansas University, earned a degree, then taught elementary school for 10 years before having children and raising them full time. Sally enjoyed speech and debate contests, serving as both contestant and judge. She and her husband took many camping trips, at one time traveling 7,000 miles, all the way to Nova Scotia, camping for 36 straight days.

Most of Sally’s life was spent in Kansas and Colorado. She became active in her church, took graduate courses in ministry, and became a Certified Ruling Elder in the Presbyterian Church (USA). Their church in Colorado had a membership of 700 and she knew them all. She was active in conducting services, including many funerals and weddings. Sally was Presbyterian through and through.
