Our deepest sympathy, thoughts and prayers go out to the Vanderslice family. Sally was our wonderful neighbor for many years. We had many conversations about anything from flowers, plants, animals, cats, dogs, politics, you name it. She was one of the most interesting people we have ever known and we will miss her smiling face and warm personality. Cherish all your wonderful memories.

We were saddened to learn of Sally’s passing. She was a good friend and a wonderful “boss” as chairperson of the MU Council of Trustees. Her strong support and dedication to students and faculty were very much valued and appreciated. Her leadership on campus and in the community was strong, positive and generous. We enjoyed our times with her and deeply appreciate her service.
We offer our condolences and prayers to her family.
With sympathy,
Joe and Linda Caputo
