Obituary of Sally Ann Humphrey

Sally Ann Humphrey

Sally Ann Humphrey, passed away peacefully, at her home in Joliet, at the age of 57, on Tuesday, August 15, 2023, surrounded by the love of her family.  Sally was born on January 13, 1966, the daughter of the late James Humphrey and Marge Downs. A lifelong resident of Joliet, she was a graduate of Joliet Central High School and attended Joliet Junior College.  She was a Top Tier Baker at Panera Bread for many years.

Sally loved her honey, her children and her grandchildren… it brought her the most joy dotting on them. She was an avid baker and a great blanket maker. She was a reader of many, many books.  Sally took so much pride in her growing garden, willing to show off her beautiful flowers to anyone who took an interest. She also enjoyed sitting in the hot sun with a hot cup of coffee at her home, “The Coffey House.”

Sally is survived by her loving significant other of 33 years, James Coffey; her three children, Nikki Woods, Summer Coffey, and Zac Coffey; her stepson, Tim Coffey; ten grandchildren, Aubrey, James, Robbie, Olivia, Timmy, Grace, Connor, Reign Beau, Blaise, and Mack; two siblings; and many other loved ones.

She is preceded by her mother, Marge; her mother-in-law, Shirley Swanson; and brother-in-law, Vernon Morgan.
