Sally Catherine Nyman, 71, passed away peacefully Saturday, March 24, in her home surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Amesbury and was the daughter of the late Joseph and Phyllis (Cebula) Romonoski.
She was a graduate of Amesbury High School and went on to work in her early years at the G.E. Corp. Sally was a beautiful blonde with sparkling eyes and an infectious spirit. She met her husband Stephen when she was working as a cashier at the former A&P grocery store in Amesbury and their love story began. Two hearts truly became one, spending years being partners, friends, parents and grandparents together, sharing their warm hearts and home with anyone who entered; her genuine love and hospitality was legendary.
She was an avid bowler who appeared on Candlepins for Cash in the late 1970s, only putting it on hold to care for her family, who were her pride and joy. Sally could, more often than not, be found with a baby on her hip, something cooking on the stove and joyful laughter all around her. She was a wonderful and warmhearted person and all that were lucky enough to have known her were better for it.
She is survived by her loving husband, Stephen, with whom she shared 51 years of marriage, having two daughters, Linda Souther and husband John of Amesbury; Catherine Skalecki and husband Kory of E. Kingston, NH.; three sons, Michael Nyman and wife Elizabeth of New York; Seth Nyman and wife Allyson of Amesbury; and Matthew Nyman of Haverhill; her grandchildren, Abigail Rivera, Logan Nyman, Sage and Tommy Souther, Lucas and Mikala Skalecki, and Christopher, Amanda and Patrick Nyman, and nieces and nephews. She also survived her sister, Mary Ann Baker of Seabrook, N.H., and her brother Joseph Romonoski of Salisbury.
