Sally was born on August 15, 1942 to Donald and Margie Smith in Mobile Al. After graduating from Murphy High School in Mobile, Al she went on to attain a Bachelor's Degree in Recreation from Florida State University.
While in college, she met Charles Q Cutshaw. The soon wed and had three children, Charles Q. Cutshaw, Jr, Michael J. Cutshaw (1970-1987) and Andrea L. Cutshaw.
When Sally had Chuck, she decided to dedicate her life to being a wonderful and caring mother. Sally threw herself into raising her children and was constantly involved in their activities. She was a cub scout leader, attended many sporting events, worked tirelessly and supported them through the many passions and difficulties of their adult lives. Whether that was supporting her husband, Charles, when he had to leave the Army using her lifelong passion of giving, or supporting Andrea as a single mother by baby-sitting, she made it her mission to improve the lives of her family and others.
Sally was a passionate gardener when she wasn't filling her home with warmth and kindness, she could be found in her garden, weeding, repotting, and pruning. We will miss her greatly.
