Louise Yvonne “Sally” Schulle

Louise Yvonne “Sally” Schulle was called home on Sept. 27, 2013. Sally was born on June 20, 1930 in Lansing, Mich., to Ernest and Helen Holmes. The family later moved to Kemah, Texas where she attended school.

A late night of work on New Year’s Eve proved to be one that changed her life forever. Co-workers, and both attending separate parties, Al Schulle offered a ride home to a “modern day damsel in distress” for Sally had missed the last train back home. The two began dating shortly after and were married on April 16, 1950.

As years went by the couple decided to start their family however due to a childhood illness that Sally survived, the option became foster parents, which eventually led to adoption of their only child Scott. Sally and Al celebrated 63 years of marriage earlier this year and the couple showed more love to each other that day than most couples do during their entire marriage.

Sally is survived by her husband, and love of her life, Al Schulle of Palestine; son, Scott Schulle of Palestine; granddaughters, Gini McDonald and husband Shane of Texarkana, Ark. and Debi MacIntyre and husband James of Athens; and grandson, Josh Schulle and wife Connie of Palestine; five great-grandchildren, many nieces and nephews and dozens of great-nieces and nephews who loved her dearly.

Funeral services for Sally were at 10 a.m. Monday, Sept. 30, 2013 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church with Msngr Zach officiating.  Burial followed in St. Joseph’s Cemetery. Arrangements were under the direction of Bailey & Foster.
