In Memoriam Sally Donellon February 1, 2002
Sally Donellon joined Professional Women’s Network in 1981. She became president in 1988.
To those of us who knew Sally, we will remember her as a kind, compassionate woman who excelled in sales and marketing, and achieved success, first at Crazy Shirts, then as president of The Custom Company, a local logo-wear company. Sally was an excellent teacher (she had an ME degree in educational psychology) and served as a special-education teacher and director of a UH research project. Sally was an avid runner, skier, networker and supporter of child services. But most of all, we remember her as being strong, but sweet, determined to live life to its fullest even under adversity, to always smile and share her aloha with her husband, her young son and daughter, her family and her friends.
Her favorite quote were these words by Helen Keller: “When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or the life of another.”
Sally Donellon touched all of us who knew her with her indomitable spirit. She will be deeply missed.
