SALLIE J. PINKSTON, a long time resident of Bulls Gap, TN and most recently of Highlands Ranch, Colorado, passed away at her home, Monday, June 3, 2013, surrounded by her immediate family. Born September 19, 1925 in Hancock County, TN, Sallie Jean Johnson married Howard W. Pinkston in 1948 after moving to Greene County.

Sallie was devoted to Mountain Valley Baptist Church, her family, friends and Tennessee. She loved her flowers and vegetable garden, good food, reading her Bible, sharing her faith, gospel music, her photo album collection, baseball, Tennessee women's basketball and sunshine on her face. Her smile and laugh were contagious; her blue eyes sparkled when she spoke. She enjoyed many friendships while working for NCR Corporation before retiring in 1990, and never met a stranger.
