Sallie was a 1936 graduate of Narrows High School. She served as a lab technician at both Radford Arsenal and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.

Sallie was known for her fun-loving spirit, and she never missed the opportunity to be the life of the party. Her stories captivated every audience, while her jokes made everyone laugh. Dancing to Rocky Top, she never left a rug uncut with her flatfooting style. Although childless, she was a mother to many nieces, nephews, and friends. She was a diehard Green Wave, Atlanta Braves Baseball, Duke Basketball, and Virginia Tech Football Fan. She never passed up a chance to see one of her kids play and engage in any sport.
