APPLEYARD TERBECK Sarah "Sally" Obituary 2010

Published in Kalamazoo Gazette; Kalamazoo, Kalamazoo, Michigan on March 9, 2010

APPLEYARD, Mrs. Sarah Jane "Sally" Of Kalamazoo

Passed away on March 6, 2010. Sally was born in Kalamazoo, May 10, 1919, the daughter of the late Bernard & Fannie (Copeman) TerBeck. She remained a life time resident of Kalamazoo, and grew to love the city, and its people and places above all things. Sally worked for many years as a middle school history teacher in Parchment. She grew to love books and the knowledge they provided. She became a voracious reader and had a great command of language and grammar. As Kalamazoo grew, so did Sally's passion for serving, which guided her into an involvement with many neighborhood associations, Bronson Park committees, and eventually she would serve as a City Commissioner. As she aged, Sally never stopped serving; often she could be found playing the piano, a gift she had acquired at an early age, at the Heritage Community of Kalamazoo, for the enjoyment of her fellow residents. She enjoyed the outdoors, and could often be found in her garden, or in one of the beautiful Kalamazoo parks. She leaves us to cherish her memory as well as her commitment and passion for our great city! Sally was preceded in passing by her husband, John "Jack" Appleyard; and a brother, Robert TerBeck. Surviving are her relatives, Joan Eckert, Linda A. Powell, and R. Thomas Powell; and long time friends, Mary Harper, Barbara Loveland, Larry Massie; and many others. In accordance with her wishes, cremation has taken place and a graveside service will take place on Monday, May 10, 2010, at 11:00 AM, in West Cooper Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to the Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes, 913 East Alcott, Kalamazoo, MI 49001.
