Sally B. Gregory

September 2, 1930 - April 15, 2021

Sally B. Gregory, 90, of Westminster Canterbury, Lynchburg, VA, died peacefully Thursday, April 15, 2021.

Born Tuesday, September 02, 1930 at Fort Meade in Deadwood, SD, Sally was a daughter of the late Col. Loren Davis Pegg and Dorothy Thorne Brickman, and step-father 1st Lt. George Albert Brickman.

Sally is survived by her son Stephen Gregory, and his wife Margaret Gregory, of Forest, VA, and her daughter, Robin Ann Gregory, of Asheville, NC; grandchildren Erika Shea Bambu (Scott Bambu) of Forest, VA, Henry J. Gregory Hines and Galen T. Gregory Hines of Asheville, NC. To be remembered also is her dear friend Doug Holden of Eagan, MN.

Sally attended Stratford Hall, Danville, Va, Longwood College, Farmville, Va and graduated from Radford University in Radford, Va.

Sally was a lover of history and in her retirement immensely enjoyed working for the Lynchburg Museum System as a guide at the Old Courthouse and Point of Honor. She passed on this love to her family and grandsons with many excursions to historical sites in the state as well as her love of reading and research. She was a proud and supportive mother and grandmother who always comforted and thought of others first, listened deeply, and shared her contagious smile. Sally immensely enjoyed gardening and the natural world. A favorite day trip was visiting Peaks of Otter with her family. She was very grateful for her beautiful surroundings and especially her dear friends, and the loving care she received, at Westminster Canterbury.
