UPDATE 7/4/18 Sally passed away July 2/2018

Just received this wanted to pass along..
As some of you may already know our dear friend and former classmate Sally Zajichek Halvorson has been fighting ovarian cancer since August of 2015. It is with much sadness to tell you all that Sally is now under Hospice care. Know that she fought a hard battle with all her might. This post from her daughters Erin and Megan on her Caring Bridge page was made this morning. Update & Request 
Journal entry by Sally Halvorson — 3 hours ago
An update to all that yesterday morning mom was escorted by ambulance to Mitchell County Regional Health Center in Osage. She is now in Acute Hospice Care at the hospital. The care here is fantastic and Megan and I feel blessed she is in good hands and comfortable both physicially and spiritually. 
Something that I have been thinking about for a while now is getting together stories (funny, heartwarming or anything in between is welcomed) of mom for our family to read to her now and for her family and friends to read for years to come. So fellow Caring Bridge readers if you can post on this site, or if you feel more comfortable emailing me directly at, I will be compiling stories and pictures to capture and remember the impact that mom has made on so many people in the past, present and for generations to come.

Thank you all for your support and prayers of comfort and peace.

Erin & Megan
