Age 80, went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, December 14, 2022. She was born at Borgess Hospital in Kalamazoo on November 24, 1942, the daughter of the late Glenn and Pauline Grogg. She was also preceded in passing by three siblings, William Grogg, Sandra VanderBor and Terrence Grogg. On August 22, 1964, she married the love of her life Clarence Bruce who survives. They enjoyed 58 years together.  She is also survived by three loving daughters, Mary Coffey, Kathy (Dave) Irwin and Ann (Tim) Tuin. One of Sally’s greatest joys was that of her nine grandchildren, Grace Coffey, Micah (Lacey) Coffey, Joseph Coffey, Ryan (Amanda) McLaughlin, Kevin (Kirsten) Irwin, Sarah (Jake) Austin, Lauren Tuin, Lexi Tuin and Jackson Tuin. She was also especially proud of her four great-grandchildren, Lennon, Kate, Miles and Shiloh. She also leaves to cherish her memory, several in-laws, many nieces, nephews and friends. Sally had a deep faith and was an active member of Christian Assembly Church. Her church life was a significant part of her life and character and her smile and presence there will be missed. In years past Sally volunteered for the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission. She had an empathy for people struggling with homelessness and her heart was always open to those in need. She will be missed deeply for her generous spirit, fun personality, and caring nature. Simply put, Sally loved Jesus and loved people; her family and friends have been privileged to love and be loved by her.
