Sally Yvonne Gann

Sally Yvonne Gann, 71, of Clark, MO returned to her Heavenly home on February 6, 2022 after a battle with a long illness.  Her devotion to her family and her firm belief in God supported her in her struggle and ultimately gave her peace.  She was surrounded by family and friends.

Sally was born in Brosley, MO on February 10, 1950.

She entered Missouri School for the Deaf in 1959 at the age of nine.  Sally graduated from the school in 1969.  After graduating, she worked in the shoe factory in Sturgeon, MO.  Later she returned to school and graduated from a cosmetology program.

Sally was a Girl Scout; she was treasurer for the Young Women of America and a member of the Literary Society.

Eventually, she met and married the love of her life, Wayne Gann.

Sally enjoyed making crafts and then giving them to family and friends. One of her favorite crafts was repurposing old costume jewelry.

Sally loved her cats and her dog, Rosie as much as they loved her.  She spent time teaching them sign language.

She was also an active member of Parkade Baptist Church and was involved in many organizations for the deaf.

Sally touched many lives with her beautiful smile and heart of gold.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Ira and Imogen Rowe; sisters, Shirley Prater, Judy Trout and Terry Rowe; brother, James Rowe, nephews, Ricky Reynolds and Jimmy Dale Trout and great nieces, Leigh Ann Trout and Amanda Nicole Rowe.

A special “Thank You” to Compassus nurses and staff.  Although we know she is rejoicing in Heaven; she will be greatly missed by all that knew her.

Wayne, My thought is with your family as Sally leaves for her Heavenly Home. May you find comfort in the memories that are yours to cherish always, and strength in the companionship of those who share your loss. I recall how a sweet lady was caring for her family and friends and walking with the Lord. Also know that you both have had many long happy years together and the memories should sustain you through this time of grief.

We are sad now that Sally is no longer with us but we will see her again in a much better place with no suffering due her strong faith in God as well as us too. Pray for Wayne and family to be strong and have peace during this time.

I'm sad to hear of Sally passing. She is in a better place. No more pain.

I have known Sally since I was a baby. Her and my mom were good friends, went to MSD together.

I loved her smile and laugh. I remember the many times we would visit or she would come visit us.

She will be missed.

My prayers to Wayne, her son David, and other family.
