Sally was born March 3, 1918 in Lexington Township, MN, the daughter of John and Mary (Skwieralski) Blasczyk. At a young age she and her family moved to the Town of Taft, Clark County, WI where she grew up and attended area rural schools. She was united in marriage to Alex Slowiak on May 28, 1938 at St. Mary’s Czestochowa Catholic Church in Junction, Town of Thorp. They lived and farmed in the Junction area until 1983 when they moved into Stanley and have resided there since. While on the farm she enjoyed raising her chickens and then later was an avid collector of chicken memorabilia. She also spent many hours embroidering dishtowels, tablecloths and quilt blocks for all of the family members. She was an active member of St. Mary’s Czestochowa Catholic Church and then later Holy Family Catholic Church and was a member of the PCCW, St. Jude’s Circle and the County Line Women’s Club.
