Sally Jane Ames Gorman, 46, of Cedar Rapids, passed away suddenly on Sunday, Oct. 28, 2012.

Sally was born Feb. 19, 1966, in Cedar Rapids, and was baptized and confirmed into the Christian faith at First Lutheran Church. In 1985, she graduated from Marion High School, where she was active in band and creative poetry writing. Sally attended Kirkwood Community College, where she studied to be a home health care aide. On June 25, 1994, she was united in marriage to Henry J. Gorman.

Sally is survived by her husband, Henry; her stepchildren, Melina, Ellen and Jeffrey; her mother-in-law Viola; sisters-in-law, Joan and Linda (Ray); her brother-in-law, John (Bev); her adoptive parents, Alton and Mary Jane Ames; her niece, Amanda Hamilton Fennern (Ryan); her nephew, Alex Hamilton; and two great-nephews, Joedan and Jaxton Fennern. She is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, friends; her cat, Lacey; and her two beloved basset hounds, Angel and Ema-Ema, and with whom she enjoyed immense pleasure as they were her world.

Sally was preceded in death by her brother, Thomas Allen Ames; her sister, Anne Christine Ames Hamilton; her brother-in-law, Daniel Joseph Hamilton, and their infant triplet children, Jason Daniel, Ralph Thomas and Sarah Jane Hamilton. She was also preceded in death by her other beloved basset hounds, Casey, Jessie, Samantha and Baelea.

Sally will be remembered for her big and loving heart, her always willingness and readiness to help other people, her caring for the less fortunate, spending time with her family and friends, listening to music, writing her poetry, dining out at her favorite restaurants and forever for her kind words, captivating smile and humor.

Rest in peace to our unique, loving, purple-wearing Sally.

Visitation will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2, at Cedar Memorial Park Funeral Home. Services will be 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, at Cedar Memorial Park Chapel of Memories.
