Our loving mother and grandmother passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 8, 2019. Age 88 years.

Sally was born on October 30, 1930, daughter of the late Joseph and Beatrice (Bishop) LaPorte, in Saginaw. She married the love of her life, Richard L. Horn, on July 29, 1950. He predeceased her on August 9, 2018. Sally was a graduate of Saginaw High School, Class of 1948 and worked on many of the class reunions. She was a member of the Shrine Jesterettes of Michigan. Sally loved animals, especially her four dogs. She enjoyed caring and cooking for her family. Sally enjoyed dancing, watching and feeding birds, traveling, playing cards with her close friends, fishing and spending time in AuGres at their summer residence with Dick.

Sally will be missed by her children, Richard D. (Mary) Horn of Ann Arbor, Victoria S.
