Sally Herndon Obituary

Sally Ann Herndon, 80, of 5061 Cornwallis Road, Turkey, N.C.  passed away Saturday, January 21, 2023, at Rex Hospital in Raleigh.

Sally was born January 13, 1943, in Erie, PA, was the daughter of the late John C. Shuhart and Nellie (Hoppe) Shuhart, and grew up in North East, PA where Sally graduated from North East High School at the age of 17.

After High School she moved to Jefferson, OH where she was a mother, homemaker, a long-time volunteer fire fighter and a Paramedic.  She was also a long-time member of the Austinburg Garden Club. Sally was so invested in her community; her 18 years as a volunteer with the Jefferson Fire Department and the Jefferson Emergency Rescue District were very fulfilling for her; helping others in any way was how she lived her life. Giving back and paying it forward brought her joy.

Sally had many interests; she enjoyed reading, vegetable gardening, tending to all of her many varieties of plants and flowers and was an avid bird watcher.

She loved to travel with her husband Don crisscrossing the country from Alaska to Newfoundland, Canada, from Ohio to Florida, Texas and California and everywhere in-between. Costa Rica and Africa being the most fulfilling trips. She enjoyed hiking through the forests, along the lakes and rivers she visited and all of the wildlife and scenic vistas she encountered along the way. She loved canoeing every chance she got everywhere she traveled.

Sally moved from Ohio to Turkey, NC, where she and Don bought a farm so they could be closer to her son, wife and grandchildren in Wilmington whom they dearly loved.  Sally enjoyed the farm life.

Survivors include; her loving and devoted husband of 45 years, Donald Gene Herndon; sons; Scott Allen Rice and wife Charlotte Costello of Wilmington, NC and Brian John Rice of San Diego, CA; grandchildren, Ava Lauren Rice, Caitlin Costello, Justin Rice and Austin Rice.
