Sally Marie Chabane was born on July 18, 1932, in Detroit, Michigan. She spent her youngest years in downtown Detroit which she described as notorious and dangerous even way back then. World War II interrupted her high school years. Her three brothers went to war and all three returned. Sally was 13 at the end of the war. It was during high school at a football game where Sally met her future husband, Robert (Bob) Paul Chabane. After they were married, Bob enlisted in the Navy. He traveled to numerous countries while Sally stayed in Detroit and worked at Fords. They had to move frequently, from Michigan to Kansas to Cecil Field in Jacksonville, Florida; back to Detroit; then Duluth, Minnesota, which sent them fleeing back to Florida. The family finally settled in Sioux Falls, SD. Sally said everywhere they went, they made good friends and had good times with lots of partying. Some of Sallys many interests included sewing and quilting. She loved to redecorate. She was a fierce holiday decorator and entertainer. Sally was also an artist who created numerous lovely drawings and paintings. She had a lovely singing voice which when growing up we were fortunate to hear on most days, especially when she was washing the dishes! Sally was an avid reader of everything from literary classics to who-dunnits. But it was her rock gardens of flowers, bird houses, and an occasional statue, that brought her major joy; she worked in the dirt tirelessly right up to the day before she died on September 12, 2016. She had made plans for shopping the next day but peacefully passed in her sleep the night before. Tending to her family was Sallys main occupation, but she also had periods of employment as a seamstress at Ravens, a nurses aide at a retirement home, and worked in the craft and sewing department of Walmart. She loved going to movies, eating out, and watching the wildlife, as she called it, in her yard. She will be greatly missed by those she left behind: two daughters, Pam Kono and Jackie Townsend; three sons, Robert Chabane (married to Dee), Matthew Chabane (partner Deb McCoy), and Steven Chabane (married to Ruth). Grandchildren include Charlie Kono, Hayley and Heather Townsend, Amanda Chabane, and Tony Chabane. Sallys grandchildren are Sierra Veneziani, Stevee Chabane, and Delaney Chabane. Sallys husband Bob and both of her parents, John and Flora Lustig, passed before Sally. The family thanks you for all your thoughts and prayers. Visitation will be at Chapel Hill Funeral Home on Friday, September 16, from 5-8 pm. Service will be at Resurrection Lutheran Church on Saturday, September 17 at 10 a. Interment will be with husband in the Black Hills National Cemetery on September 30. Sallys final move is to her Real Home. We were so blessed to have her in our lives.
