Sally graduated from Redbank Valley High School in 1956 and went on to earn her teaching degree from Clarion College, now PennWest University. She completed additional coursework at Edinboro University and Penn State. Throughout her career, Sally served as a copy typist for the Leader-Vindicator and as an English teacher at Allegheny-Clarion Valley High School. In later years, she returned to teaching as a substitute for Armstrong School District and Redbank Valley. In 2004 she was honored by the students of Redbank as their Teacher of the Year. Sally loved her students, and they loved her.

In 1967, Sally married Duane Tremba of Parker where they raised three sons. She is survived by Duane and her three sons and daughters-in-law: Mike and Krista Tremba of Parker; Tim and Melissa Tremba of Cayuta, New York; and Aaron and Patricia Tremba of Trappe, PA. She loved spending time with her family and her six grandchildren: Matthew, Lily, Taylor, Toby, Claire, and Faith.

Throughout her life, Sally loved the Lord and was active in church. She served in the Young Women’s Fellowship at the United Methodist Church in Parker, as well as teaching Vacation Bible School, and Sunday School, and leading the Youth Group at the First Baptist Church of New Bethlehem.

Throughout her life, Sally was most proud of the legacy of Christian faith which she left to each of her children and grandchildren.
