Sally L. Kline, age 89 of Grand Haven, passed away on Saturday, August 12, 2023 at a local care facility. She was born on September 28, 1933 in Allendale, MI to the late James and Clara (VandePanne) Walwood.

Her first job was at Felix’s working at the Dairy Bar, and she also worked at Sears and Verplank’s, then becoming a homemaker. She was a wonderful mother and loved her boys endlessly. Later on, she had her own cleaning business and had many loyal clients who became close friends. 

Sally loved to cook and bake and was well known for her famous “Aunt Sally’s Cheesecakes.” She catered many special events and baked her delicious cheesecakes for all kinds of celebrations for family, friends, and clients.   

Sally will be lovingly remembered by her three grandchildren: Lauren (Luke) Novak, Ryan Kline, and Christie Kline; brother, Jim (Elizabeth) Walwood; and many nieces and nephews.
