Born on October, in Bangor, ME, to the late Kenneth & Eldora “Dolly” Merry, she fulfilled a life of giving of herself to those she loved.

Equal to being with her family, Sally cherished her time with her furbabies, Frankie, Sophie, Runty, Tweenie, and Mugsy.

Whitaker, Her Son, Patrick Whitaker & Kacy (Partner), Her Son, Timothy Whitaker & Maureen (Fiancé), Her Daughter, Brandi Whitaker & Cas Smogor (Husband), Her Grandchildren, Dylan & Kaitlyn Whitaker, Hunter & Cas Smogor, Her Great Grandchild, Cas Smogor, Her Sister, Betty Moscinski, Her Nieces, Peggy Zambetti, Sally (Anne) Theriault, Lou Ann Morbidelli, Her Nephew, Joseph Cebollero and several great Nieces and Nephews.
A family statement to read: How do we let go How do we find comfort How can we gather up the fragments of our broken hearts Perhaps by realizing the One who gave us you Has called your sweet name and set the path that leads to His open and waiting arms Giving you now, eternal rest in the place He has prepared just for you Yes, we are weighted & gladdened by the thought That He Loved us so, He gave us you This will be the pillar on which we hold to see us through Memories of the endless and abundant Love in which you showered upon us With each moment we were graced to share with you This will be the hope to which we strive to share.
Calling hours are Sunday, September 3, 2017, from 1-4 at The Mosti Funeral Home, Sunset Chapel. A funeral liturgy with mass will be celebrated 10am Monday at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church, Msgr. Kurt Kemo, celebrant. Burial will be private at Mt. Calvary Cemetery.
