Sally (Koskelin) Woodford passed away on June 24, 2013, in Fountain Valley, Calif., following a brief illness.
Sally was born on Nov. 16, 1934, in Sayner, Wis., the firstborn child of Edward Frank Koskelin of Eagle River and Dorothy Sayner Koskelin of Sayner.
In 1941, the family moved to California and settled on the west side of Los Angeles.After graduating from high school, Sally attended beauty college and became a licensed hairdresser. She operated a successful beauty salon, along with her friend and business partner.
She married Vincent Orville Woodford (deceased) in 1958. Together they had a daughter, Barbara, who currently resides in Westminster, Calif.
In 1986, Sally and her mother, along with brother Richard and family, returned to the Northwoods, settling in Phelps. She was happy to return to the place she called home and, indeed, she was happy living there.
She made many good friends and continued working as a hairdresser until November 2012, when she finally retired.
Sally lovingly cared for her mother until her passing in August of 2009. Sally was a very kind and generous person; she was loved by everyone who knew her and she will be greatly missed.
In addition to her daughter Barbara, Sally is survived by brothers, Edward Koskelin (Mary) and Richard Koskelin (Barbara) of Phelps, Wis.; Carol Houston of Los Angeles; Julia Clapp (Mike) of Chino Valley, Ariz.; plus numerous nieces and nephews, as well as numerous great-nieces and great-nephews.
