She married Rollin Bruce Huber (Ron) in 1951 in Ohio and moved to Tacoma, WA to be near Ron while he was stationed at Fort Lewis. Upon his discharge from the service they decided to make their new home in Tacoma. This is where daughter Kathleen and son Russ were born. The family moved Salt Lake City, for a promotion Ron had to Branch Manager for the H.J. Heinz Co.
In 1971 the family moved to Vashon Island, WA to start a new adventure as Ron became Camp Burton Manager.
Sally and Ron divorced in 1976, and Sally and Kathy moved to Seattle, WA with the help of Pastor Bob Walker of Fremont Baptist Church. They moved into the apartment building behind the church and began going to services.
