Sally Gaynell Fellers, 70 of Springfield, passed away peacefully on May 12, 2022.

Sally met Carl Fellers in Jr. High. They lived a block away from each other and started dating when she was 15 and he was 16. High school sweethearts, they were married on Nov 8th, 1969. Sally was a homemaker for many years to their children Angie, Cari, and Bradly.

Once the children were grown and on their own, she joined Carl in their family business, Fellers Fixtures. Sally's first job with the company was City Deliveries. From there she became a valued part of the company. She was an avid bird watcher and could tell you about many of the local bird species.

She will be cremated and scattered at home under her favorite bird-watching tree. A celebration of life party is in the works and details will be shared once finalized.
