Sally A. Rowland, 63 of Vanderbilt, passed away Saturday, June 29, 2019 at home. Born in Detroit on January 8, 1956, Sally was the daughter of James and Faye Hatch.
On March 5, 1977, Sally married the love of her life, Bob. For 45 year, she poured her heart and soul into healthcare as a nurse. She worked at St. Mary of Livonia for 27 years and then Tendercare/Medilodge of Gaylord since 2002. She worked in various parts of the facilities, but the one she enjoyed most was the dementia unit. When she wasn’t at work helping her patients, she loved going on adventures on her ATV, snowmobile and motorcycle. She was full of life, with a beautiful smile and warm heart and was very resilient.
In addition to her husband Bob, Sally is survived by her son, JD Rowland; her father, James Hatch and her sister, Nancy Hatch, and countless friends. She was preceded in death by her mother, Faye and her brother, Jimmy.
