She was a resident of Sunrise Senior Living in Leesburg at the time of her death, and prior to that, made her home for 63 years, in Annandale, VA. During WW 11, she worked as a secretary for the Navy Department. A consummate homemaker, Sally was an excellent cook, and enjoyed preparing "everything from scratch" meals for her family. Over the years, she collected a large library of cookbooks. She loved baking and decorating beautiful cakes for others. She also loved growing flowers and was an avid gardener. Other favorite pastimes included bird watching, art, music and theater. Sally and her husband were members of the C & O Canal Association, where they made lifelong friends. For years, they hiked and camped along the C&O Canal, volunteering their time in clean up and maintenance of the trail and structures owned by the Club. In her later years, Sally enjoyed volunteering her time at the Inova Fairfax Hospital Thrift Shop in Annandale. Sally was preceded in death in 1995, by her loving husband of 41 years, James Calvin Bryant.
