In Memory

Sally Carr (McCann)

Sally McCann (Carr), 64, wife of Robert “Bob” McCann of West Salem passed away Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017, at Mulders Health Care Facility.

Sally was born Nov. 5, 1952, in La Crosse, to Allan and Faye Carr. She graduated from Logan High School in 1970 and attended WWTC, before going to work in the family business, Joe Harter & Son Landscaping, eventually running the business until her retirement in 2014.

Sally’s love of horses began at a young age and continued her entire life. Riding, training, and caring for horses was her passion and she shared her knowledge and skills readily with all. She served as president of the WWHSA, was a leader for the 4-H Horse Project, was a member of the WHPA, and served on the Ag Society Board. She was a mentor to countless young people who wanted to learn to care for and enjoy horses as she did.

Sally is survived by her husband, Bob McCann of West Salem; daughters, Kristina “Niki” (Bradley) Furlano of Onalaska, and Robin (Luke) Watson of Waverly, Iowa; mother, Faye Harter of La Crosse; brother, Daniel (Patricia) Carr of West Salem; grandson, Ethan Furlano of Onalaska; and many loved nieces, nephews, cousins, close friends, and extended family members.

She was preceded in death by her stepfather, Joseph Harter; father, Allan Carr; and her grandparents, Dorothy Severson, Kjartan Turmo and Allan (Ruth) Carr.
