Sally taught elementary school in Virginia for a short time before working as a flight attendant for Northwest Orient Airlines.  On August 1, 1959 she married Conrad Lautigar and went on to become a devoted wife and mother.  For her children, she was a constant source of encouragement and unconditional love.  In 1993, she and Conrad built their home on Lake Vermilion, where they spent many years together enjoying the changing seasons. 

Sally had a passion for  music and found joy in playing the piano.  Through her gift of music, she touched many young lives as a piano teacher.  Later in her life, Sally shared her love of music by serving as the pianist at St. Martins Catholic church in Tower, MN.
