When we think of Sally, we think of three movies: When [Jerry] Met Sally, Thelma and Louise, and, at the end, Steel Magnolias. Sally embodied all there is about being joyous. And that never stopped. We never heard a cross word out of Sally’s mouth. For Sally, there was never time for that. Wasn’t she right? We think Sally had long ago mastered the secret of life. And she was always willing to share that with everyone in her pure, unselfish way. There was always someone else who she could ask about, be concerned about, and pray for. All of us prayed for Sally once we realized that she really needed our prayers. But until then through her last days, for Sally, it was always, always, about someone else.

And while we know that Sally was at peace when she died knowing that Hashem was in command, a song written by Neil Diamond, and a tear, many tears, comes to mind more than anything, either what Sally may have thought or what we feel. The main words with some names changes go something like this:

“... Fannie Brice, Buster Keegan, Madam Curie, Humphrey Bogard, Wolfie Motzart, Harper, Chico Marx, Alexanders King and Graham Bell, Albert Camus, on to Ho Chi Min, Gunga Din, Alan Freed, Patsy Cline, and Sally Miller too. And each one there. Had one thing shared. They all swayed beneath the same sun. Looked up in wonder at the same moon. And wept when it was all done, for being done too soon ... for being done too soon.”

Sally, you are no longer suffering. Nothing makes us happier at this moment. The last months have been difficult for all of us knowing what you were going through. Please take comfort in knowing that MMAE, when it emerges from the pandemic, will forever glow from the memories of you having been there.

Rest in peace forever, Sally. We’ll keep working on trying to figure it out down here. If you can give us any tips, we’re all ears.

I've known Sally all of my life.

I've known Sally all of my life. She was somehow related to my Father, of Blessed memory, but became like a sister to my mother. When she would come to visit, I would try to pick up her suitcase, couldn't and called her "the lady with rocks in her suitcase" because it was so heavy. Of course it was so heavy because it was bursting with clothes. Sally loved clothes. She and my mother, Charlotte, would go shopping together. They looked so much alike, people would confuse one for the other even in recent years. She will be deeply missed.

I've known Sally my entire life. She was, my mother, Charlotte's, best friend. They looked so much alike most people thought they were sisters. My father, my he rest in peace, introduced her to Sy. The wedding was at our house and my father, Sy and myself were to hang lights outside. Well they both took a nap. Sally and my mother came home and saw there were no lights hanging. Well to say they were mad is an understatement. I can tell you the lights were up in record time! I will always remember Sally and my mother teaching me, my wife Norma, my sister Rona, my brother-in-law Barry Canasta. She expected perfection. We laughed and enjoyed the time together but she was a tough lady. You will always be with us.
Love Norma and Ed Orman.

My mother Selma was Sally's first friend when she moved here from NY. She knew my grandmother and my aunt too. My mom was at Sally's wedding to Sy with my dad as her date before they were married. Sally cut my mom’s hair at Andre’s downtown and knew me since I was a baby! When Andre’s closed she went to Mr. Fritz. She was the only one to ever cut my hair right and we became friends. She used to tell me stories about her step-grandkids! She always shared their pictures. I remember how excited she was when the triplets were born. She provided me an opportunity to talk about a lot of things with her and gave me advice. We then followed her to Tete a Tete and finally she came to cut the hair of my twins in my home and in hers- the 3rd generation. She loved my kids and they loved her. After Sy died, we were so happy she met Jerry and found happiness with him. When we would see her at shul or at the Peppermill, my kids and I always gave her big smiles and hugs. When Jerry died, she truly appreciated all the love and support that received at the shul in these last few years. She found a lot of meaning there and she was really touched by all the help and support you gave her! You were her family and you meant the world to her! Sally was a true friend and connected with our family. All of us will miss her! May her memory be a blessing!

The American Indians have a proverb;'' It is blood that makes brothers ,but hearts that make friends''.
Sally endeared herself to so many people and thus their hearts. She was loved and cherished as a family member to so many people. Her beauty, wisdom, and love of G-d and Israel was magnificent!
We will miss her.

Sally was a good friend of my Aunt Mildred Berfeld so I saw her on many occasions. I always admired her strength of character and youthful demeanor. It was fun to listen to her stories of determination and wit. I'm sure they have already scheduled a heavenly card game. Condolences to her family. May her memory be a blessing to all of you.

I became friendly with Sally through our membership in Covenant Guild. She was always friendly , warm and caring. After many months of suffering, she is now at peace. Rest in peace, dear friend.

My mother, Mildred Berfeld, and Sally were very close friends and played canasta for many years. They were incredibly fun together and always looked fabulous. Sally was upbeat and full of energy. She was well loved and cared for by my mom and her MMAE family. Condolences to all who hold her dear. May her memory be a blessing.

Sally (Janet, as we knew her) was a dear friend of my mother's from the time they were 16-- having met at their first jobs in New York. Their friendship stood the test of time and distance (my mother being in Chicago for the last 50 years)... many a night Janet would call my mom and they would stay up talking and reminiscing and loving on one another through life's many trials and tribulations. "Aunt Janet" will always be remembered for her class, warmth, style, grace, and sense of humor. Our hearts are heavy at the thought of her no longer being with us, but we are confident she is once again with her Sy, and talking with my dad, whom she called 'the chairman of the board'. Much love to her family, may her spirit live on.

Sally Miller was a class act...right off Broadway...I will miss her smile and friendly personality at MMAE. She dressed impecably perfect.Her devotion to Hashem was unrelenting. The Shul should be renamed. " SM-JT. Congregation....of course, after Sally & her beloved friend, JWV, Jerry Trager, both (OBM). Hashem now has 2 superb Souls to bless. May we all learn & study Torah in both their memories...Baruch Hashem !!!

Thank you Sally for showing such strength and grace during good times and bad. You are an inspiration to many for your faith, your caring about others and yourself and your loving neshama. We will miss seeing you at Shul but you will forever be in our hearts and prayers.

We're going to miss seeing Sally in Shul when we return. Her hair was always perfect and her outfit was very fashionable. She enjoyed our Kiddush's so she could mingle with everyone. Rest in peace. Eileen and Maish

Although I didn’t know her long, I really liked her and her NY ‘can do’ attitude. I loved her independence and strength and above all, her true emunah in HaShem. She inspired me to believe deeper. I will certainly miss her.

Sally, my special friend, I am so grateful for the bond we shared. I will miss sitting with you at Shul. I will miss our phone calls and hearing your words of faith and encouragement. No more pain, no more worries. Now you can be at peace. I'll love you forever.

My beautiful Sally I am so sad to hear this news I thought you would live forever, and you will in my memories. I loved working side by side with you for many years and still miss you and your sense of style. Heaven just got a little classier with you there.

The entire congregation of MMAE is heartbroken over the passing of our beloved member, Sally Miller. Every morning at davening, we recite Psalm 100 - Mizmor l'soda - which says:

A psalm of Thanksgiving, call out to Hashem, everyone on earth. Serve Hashem with gladness, come before Him with joyous song.

This psalm was either written by Sally or written for Sally. She walked with Hashem, she loved Hashem and her level of emaunah will forever be an inspiration to every member of MMAE. Sally loved her congregational family and we loved her back. Always all dolled up with make up and perfectly coifed hair and dressed up with class. Hers is a life we celebrate. If we were to ask her what we should say, I am sure she would say, just thank Hashem for me. She will be missed terribly.
