Sally A. Gorski, 68, Wausau, passed away peacefully in her home while surrounded by family on Thursday, November 21, 2019, under the care of Ascension at Home Hospice.

Sally enjoyed being a stay at home mom, babysitting and also worked for several years at the Quilting Workshop in Wausau.  Among her favorite pastimes, she liked reading, sewing, quilting, cooking, baking and shopping, especially her weekly shopping trips with her sister, Sue.  Sally loved to go up North to the family cottage and enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren and her favorite kitty “Hattie”. She also spent countless hours road tripping to quilt shops with her late best friend Faye.

Sally was a very loving, giving and charitable person, always willing to help someone in need.  She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
