Sally Ann Richardson, age 83, of Corning, NY passed away on Sunday, January 21, 2018 at Guthrie Corning Hospital. Sally was born April 28, 1934 in Corning, NY to Francis and Carrie (Copeland) Hillman. She married Timothy Richardson on September 25, 1955 and was predeceased by him on May 25, 1981.
Sally will be fondly remembered but sadly missed by her family and friends, whom she loved dearly. Sally was a mother to many and loved everyone unconditionally. She was the life of every party and lived her own life to the fullest. Sally always had a smile on her face and a joke on her tongue to brighten the dreariest of days. Her unique laugh will forever be cherished by her family. Sally enjoyed many summers on Seneca Lake, enjoying a good book in the sunshine; Sally instilled that same love for the lake in her family.
She is survived by three sons: Theodore Richardson of Corning, NY, Steve (Elizabeth) Richardson of Lawton, Oklahoma, Dennis (Joyce) Richardson of Stanley, NY; Siblings: Barbara Fawcett, Bill Hillman, and John Hillman; Grandchildren: Erin, Matt, Richard, Jennifer, Christa, and Shannon; also by great-grandchildren: Cameron, Aubrey, Hailey, Gina, Jacob, JJ, Blake, Connor, and Madison. She was predeceased by her brothers Bob Hillman and Tom Hillman.
