DAWSON, Sally Watts, passed away peacefully on January 8, 2021. She was surrounded by her family and lovingly cared for by Cedarfield Healthcare nursing staff and Hospice of Virginia caregivers. Those who loved her share the grief of her loss but also celebrate her long, vibrant and joyful life. Sally sparkled through her years, and we will deeply miss her light, laughter and love. Sally was predecease­d by her beloved husband, Robert Dawson; her father, Richard Prosser Watts; and her mother, Florence Hooker Watts; her brothers, Richard and Robert Watts; and her son-in-law, Joseph Zoller. She is survived by her son, Bob Dawson and daughter-in-law, Kimberly; daughter, Amy Zoller; daughter, Beth McAlhany and son- in- law, Ben McAlhany; granddaugh­ter, Katie Dawson; and grandsons, Mac and Dawson McAlhany. She also leaves her cousin, Michael Watts; and a host of adored nieces and nephews. Sally was born in Adrian, Michigan, and attended Adrian College where she was crowned Homecoming Queen and captured the heart of Navy veteran, Bob Dawson. She graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelor of Art in Education and served the Panhelleni­c Associatio­n as a member of the Kappa Delta sorority and was again named to the Homecoming Court. She began her career as an elementary school teacher in Adrian before she and Bob were reunited and married in 1953. They began their young married life in Coral Gables, Florida, as Sally taught first grade and Bob finished his law degree at the University of Miami. Bob’s career took them to Winter Haven, Florida, where they started their family and created lifelong friendship­s. Sally loved life amongst the lakes and citrus groves of Central Florida and was an active community volunteer, substitute teacher and mother to three. In 1968, Bob accepted a leadership position with Lawyers Title Insurance Corp. and they relocated to Richmond. Sally created beautiful, hospitable homes that were always open for gathering and entertaini­ng. She supported Bob’s ambitions and her children’s lives tirelessly, selflessly and vibrantly. She was also active in the P.E.O. Sisterhood; Huguenot Investment Club; a member of the Tuckahoe Woman’s Club; an active volunteer for St. Michael’s School, Trinity High School and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Sally was devoted to the congregati­on of River Road Presbyteri­an Church, where she and Bob served ministries and formed lifelong friendship­s. With Bob, Sally enjoyed the social fellowship of Soixante Plus Cotillion, The Commonweal­th Club and the Country Club of Virginia, especially that of the "55ers." Sally was happiest playing golf with Bob and friends, traveling to far corners of the country and globe and most recently, spending time with her beloved grandchild­ren whom she proudly extolled to anyone who would listen. They will miss Mimi’s adoration, zest for game playing, storytelli­ng and insistence that they could accomplish anything they set their minds to. The family is deeply grateful for the compassion­ate care of the nursing staff and caretakers of Cedarfield Retirement Community as well as that of Hospice of Virginia. These heroic profession­als made Sally’s final days peaceful and loving and provided treasured comfort to her children. The family hopes to announce details for a celebratio­n of Sally’s life when conditions are safe to gather.
