Kalkan expat resident Sally George dies aged 64

Sally GeorgeIt is with immense sadness that we report the death of Kalkan resident Sally George who passed away peacefully at St Catherine’s Hospice in Crawley in the early hours of Friday 15th December following a long period of illness.  She was 64 years old.

Sally leaves behind her wonderful mother Ann, her two loving sons Max and Mark, daughter in law Sarah, and grandchildren Jasper and Ryder whom she adored.

She first visited Kalkan with her mother many years ago, long before Kalkan was as popular as it is now.  It is a place that was destined to become her home both in a literal sense and also spiritually.

Sally fell in love with Kalkan and over the years she contributed to many aspects of our local community; not in an ostentatious way but often quietly and unobtrusively. 

She had a great love of art and her enthusiasm inspired many to discover their own artistic talents.  In her earlier life Sally had experienced difficult times and she drew upon her own experiences to help others by providing counselling and advice to those who needed support.

Sally enjoyed life to the full in Kalkan and immersed herself in lots of activities.  Along the way she made countless friends.  She was kind, compassionate, knowledgeable and fun to be with.  These qualities never dimmed, even over recent months when she was bravely battling her illness.

Sally will be greatly missed but will live long in our memories and be remembered with great affection.

We send our condolences to her family and close friends.  The funeral service will be held at 11.15 on Thursday 28th December at Surrey & Sussex Crematorium, Balcombe Road, Crawley RH10 3NQ.

May she rest in peace.  Allah rahmet eylesin.
