Sally Flaherty Englert, 86, Webster County, Ky.

WEBSTER COUNTY, Ky. (4/7/14) — Sally Flaherty Englert, 86, beloved wife of Eugene R. Englert Sr. (Jan 15, 1925- Aug 18, 2001) and mother of 7 children passed away peacefully in Sandpoint, Idaho April 5, 2014.

She was born at St. Mary’s Hospital in Minneapolis, Minn., to the late Francis Alva Flaherty and Frances Marie Fitzgibbon Flaherty Sept. 5, 1927. Her family lived in Minneapolis, Chicago, and Owensboro, Ky. where Sally’s father and family owned and operated the TJ Turley Company. Sally was the oldest of 5 children including twins Joseph Richard Flaherty and Carolyn Flaherty Jones, Sue Flaherty Phelps and Dennis Flaherty.

While attending Mt. St. Joseph College near Owensboro, Sally met Eugene R. Englert also of Owensboro. She traveled to Waipahu on the island of Oahu, Hawaii to marry the young Naval Officer Feb. 26, 1946. After her husband completed active naval duty the couple moved to Evansville, Ind., to be close to relatives in Owensboro. Eugene began a long career as a civil engineer with the L&N and CSX railroads. Shortly after the birth of their first child, Gene and Sally were transferred by the railroad to Louisville, Ky., where they lived until all the children were grown. Sally directed the choir at St. Rita’s Catholic Church and sang with a local group, The Carousels. She worked successfully in sales with Tupperware and Artex; and finally as a Real Estate broker. After her husband was transferred to Jacksonville, Fla., Sally continued her real estate career and opened her own office. She was an active member of St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Jacksonville. Sally was blessed with a beautiful soprano voice. She sang and directed the church choir.

After the death of her husband in 2001 Sally moved back to Louisville with her son Mark until moving into Belmont Village Retirement Home. There she continued to sing, made new friends and visited with her sons Richard, Gene, Chris and their families. In September 2011 Sally moved to Sandpoint, Idaho to be close to her daughter Sally Jo and family. She was a member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Sandpoint.

Aside from her parents, Sally was preceded in death by her husband, Eugene Raphael Englert, Sr.; two sons Joseph Richard Englert and Mark Thomas Englert; siblings Carolyn Jones, Sue Phelps and Dennis Flaherty.

Sally is survived by her children Kathy (Harrison) Lee of Portland, Ore., Eugene R. Englert, Jr. of Corbin, Ky., Richard (Connie) Englert of Louisville, Ky., Christopher (Michele) Englert of Olive Branch, Miss., and Sally (Gary) Suppiger of Sandpoint, Idaho. She has 18 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren. Also surviving is a brother, Joseph Richard Flaherty and an aunt, Margaret Flaherty Smith of Owensboro.

Your blessing and prayers are appreciated for the family and friends who will miss Sally’s presence in this world. We were blessed to have her as our mother and friend. She loved us very much, and gave us Roman Catholic values we live by today.

Celebration Mass will be 12 pm Saturday at St. Stephen Cathedral with Father Jerry Riney officiating and burial to follow in Resurrection Cemetery.

Visitation and prayers will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday at Haley McGinnis & Owensboro Funeral Home.
