June 22, 2022
GORHAM – Selma Carolyn “Sally” O’Donal, our world is a bit dimmer this week after losing our beloved Mum. Selma “Sally” O’Donal, 92, died peacefully at home June 22, 2022. Born November 3, 1929 in Danvers MA, Sally was just 14 years old when she met her future husband Royce. Married in 1952, they celebrated 67 years of marriage before his death in 2019. Together, she (the nurse) and he (the arborist) nurtured six children, 15 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and many others they considered family - all while working hand-in-hand to build a successful business with O’Donal’s Nurseries. Sally was a registered nurse, graduating in 1952 from Lynn School of Nursing in Lynn, MA. She worked many years at Mercy Hospital in Portland, and finished her career as a nurse with SD Warren in Westbrook, from 1977-1983. She was a former member of the Board at the Kaler-Vaill Home in Scarborough, and was involved in many other community and church. . .
