Sally lived in the Cable area for over 80 years.  She enjoyed cooking and baking.  Most of all, Sally loved her family and took pride in taking care of the ones she loved.

Sally and Warren’s house was always the main attraction in the area during the Christmas season.  People would come from all around to see and hear they’re extravagant Christmas wonderland of lights and displays.

She is survived by her daughter, Kim (Bill) DeVries of Big Lake, MN; her grandchildren, Wil (Rachael) DeVries and their children, Sophia, and Isabelle; Brock (Chelsea) DeVries and their son, Emmett; her brothers, Thomas (Paulette) Frels of Cable, WI and John R (Marjorie) Frels of Lakewood, CO; her nieces and nephews, Jackie (Bob) Lyons, Mindy (Dan) Ruck, Katrina (Blake) Hoing and Meredith Frels; and great-nieces and nephews, Ethen, Jacob, Dylan, and Evan. 

In addition to her parents, Sally is preceded in death by her beloved husband, Warren Gunderson, their faithful collies Bootsy & Tippers, and Sally’s sweet kitty Snickers.

A celebration of life will be held graveside at the Greenwood Cemetery in Cable on May 22 at 11:00 am.  Immediately following-there will be food and drinks at the Cable American Legion.

The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to Regional Hospice and the wonderful care given by nurse Dawn Johnson.

Sally LOVED animals so in lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to “Best Friends Animal Society”.
