SMUCLOVSKY SALLY JO TAYLOR, age 61, August 1, 2013, went to her eternal home on Thursday morning, August 1, 2013 after a courageous 3-year battle with cancer. Sally was born in Detroit, Michigan and was the widow of John Smuclovsky. She leaves behind two sons, Nicholas and Michael both of Miami, Florida; sister Jill McCall (Dale) of Prescott, Arizona, brother Scott (Judy) of Wallowa, Oregon, and friends too numerous to count. Sally graduated from Redford Union High School in 1970; obtained her AA in Business and Nursing Degree from Miami Dade College. A memorial service will be planned for family and friends in Michigan at a later date. Donations can be made to cancer research or Ann Arbor Hospice of Ann Arbor, MI.

I was lucky to be reunited with Sally on our 40 year high school reunion cruise. Still always smiling even when the airlines lost her luggage. To her family, sorry for your loss Sally was a very special person.

Like Norm Jakust, I hadn't seen Sally since graduation until our 40 Year reunion cruise. If she knew she was sick you'd never have been able to tell. She was partying with the rest of us like it had only been a matter of days since we'd all last seen each other. I was hoping she'd be going with us on our Alaska cruise in 2015 and the party could continue. Happily she'll be there in spirit and we will toast her memory. RIP Sally, none of your fellow Panthers2906 will ever forget you.

Mary Ray08/07/2013

Sally brought so much joy and laughter with her, no matter the occasion, that you couldn't help but be drawn in. Her spirit was indomitable. A most amazing woman I was lucky enough to call my friend. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to you, Nicholas, Michael, Jill and Scott - as well as the rest of us that will always miss Sally. May our wonderful memories keep her in our hearts forever. With much love, may God bless you Sally Jo.
