Sally Jane Goar was the daughter of Charles Otto Kramm and Margaret Frances (Rapp) Kramm born in Rocheport, Boone County, Missouri in 1934. The family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico in the early 1940’s seeking a drier climate. At the time of her death, she was predeceased by her siblings, Virginia Niles Duncan, Herschel (Buster) Kramm, Helen Montoya and Charlene Brown.
Her children and grandchildren have so many fond memories of weekends and holidays (Thanksgiving & Christmas) with “Mom and Pops”. We all just loved her home cooked meals. She made enough to feed an army! We would enjoy sitting around the dining room table, laughing about times past, or you would find us all sprawled out either on the den floor (on the many rugs she owned), taking a nap, or “picking” like a bunch of apes! LOL! Oh, what great memories!
Sally instilled in each of her children a high work ethic, whether you were working outside the home or maintaining your own home (Clorox Queen!) Besides high work ethic, the most important treasure she instilled was her Christian Faith.
Taking us to church early in life, and teaching us Christian values has led each of us in our own personal journey in the Christian Faith.
Sally was a social butterfly her entire life. She was always busy, going and doing. Her favorite things to do were church on Sunday, and meeting her dear friends Fran & Bob for weekly lunches at Golden corral.
Her last few months were in assisted living. She loved it there because she received wonderful care, but she was able to socialize 24/7 if she chose. We know that she would go down early in the morning, sit in her wheel chair, and get front row action to all the comings and goings in the facility. We found out that mom really made an impact on the staff and residents while she was there. They adored her.
We will miss our mom so very much, but know in our hearts she is at rest, perfect peace and in the arms of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We have hope that we will see mom again one day!
