Sally had many good friends and relatives who will always remember her joy of living and love of family. She had a lifelong skill as a chef.
As a legacy to her family, Sally had a memory-evoking collection of recipes published in a cookbook for her family as gifts for a family reunion at Atlantic Beach in 2008, when her 90th birthday was celebrated.
Sally had many interests in life - children, grandchildren, sharing a meal she prepared, and gardening. Often found in her yard by visitors, she claimed she moved to New Bern because "if the camellias could bloom all year here, so could she."
She is survived by two daughters, Patricia Bartram and husband Bob Bartram of New Bern, N.C. and Deanie Cinnamon of Lexington. She was blessed with six grandchildren, Christopher Bartram and wife Catherine of Springfield, Va.; Kevin Bartram and wife Connie of Fredericksburg, Va.; Michele Bartram of Chicago, Ill.; Jerry Scott Cinnamon and wife Kitty of Lexington; Julie Ann McFarland and husband Jimmy of Lexington; and Jennifer Cinnamon of Lexington.
She had six great-grandchildren that she claimed made her old age absolutely wonderful: Jordan and Jenna McFarland, Jonathan Cinnamon and Meghan Minniear and Nicholas and William Bartram.
A small prayer service will be held at Cotten Funeral Home and Crematory today at 5 p.m. A memorial service will be held in Lexington at the Crossroads Christian Church, 4128 Todds Road, Saturday, Dec. 6, at 1 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, Sally would prefer friends spend their money on gifts for needy children, such as the Greenbrier Fund for Needy Children or the MERCI Clinic of New Bern. Their mailing addresses are: MERCI Free Clinic, 1315 Tatum Drive New Bern, NC 28560; Greenbrier Fund for Needy Children, 101 Oak Hill Lane, New Bern NC, 28562.
