Sally A. Salas
NEWPORT - Sally Ann (Manning) Salas,

64, of Bayview Avenue, Newport, RI, died peacefully surrounded by her family on Sunday, October 9, 2011 at Newport Hospital, Newport, RI.
She was the wife of Francisco Sablan Salas, Jr.
Born in Bangor, ME on March 20, 1947, she was the daughter Peggy (Bailey) Higgins of Bangor, ME and the late Carroll “Barb” Manning.
When she was young she spent many years working at the phone company in Bangor. Then, she met Francisco and moved with him to Newport. Once here, she began working at Salas’ Dining Room.

She had also spent some years as a Girl Scout Troop Leader. In her limited spare time she enjoyed antiquing, gardening, reading, and yard saling. She was also an avid animal lover, but there was nothing she loved more than spending time with her grandchildren.
Besides her husband of 41 years and her mother, she is survived by her children, Damion Salas, Tonya Mello and her husband Benjamin and Maren Salas all of Newport, RI, her brother John Manning and his wife Linda Farwell of Hollowell, ME, her sister Nancy Morey and her husband Fred of Bangor, ME and brother-in-laws, Jose Salas of Middletown and Enrique Salas of NYC, as well as her grandchildren, Luke Mello and Haley Mello of Newport.
