October 7, 1929 – January 25, 2023

Sally L. Plynn, age 93, passed away on January 25, 2023. She was a resident of Colorado Springs since the mid-1970s and was formerly a resident of Chicago, Illinois, Minnesota, Anchorage, Alaska, and Oregon.

Sally was born on October 7, 1929, to Howard Leslie Harrington and Ellen Evelyn (Korpi) Harrington in Chicago, Illinois.  On October 2, 1969, she married Daniel L. Plynn in Klamath Falls, Oregon.

Sally was very fond of playing board and card games and was quite a good player. In more recent decades, she enjoyed playing Sudoku daily and had an appreciation for computer games that strengthened her mind.  She also enjoyed western shows like The Rifleman.

Sally was a founding member of Cross & Crown Church (dba for Austin Bluffs Evangelical Free Church) in Colorado Springs, CO from 50 years ago. She sang in the choir in her younger years and so appreciated the teaching each Sunday in service. She loved to sing.

Sally was in Anchorage, Alaska, during the 1964 Great Alaskan Earthquake.  She was an avid photographer and created a slide show of the aftermath to show to groups of people.

She is survived by her nephew, David Harrington, and nieces, Nancy Lo Presti and Carrol Harrington. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, Howard and Ellen Harrington, her siblings, Rosalie and George Harrington, and her husband, Daniel Leonard Plynn.

A memorial service will be held at 2:00 pm on Wednesday, February 1, 2023 at Cross & Crown Church, 4455 Arrowswest Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80907.  A visitation will be held from 5:00 – 7:00 pm on Wednesday, February 1, 2023 at Shrine of Remembrance, 1730 E. Fountain Blvd., Colorado Springs, CO 80910.  Burial will be at Fort Logan National Cemetery.

Sally was a member of the Christian Women’s Club and had served with the Women’s Auxiliary of the Salvation Army.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Salvation Army or your favorite Christian missionary organization.

Sally will be greatly missed.
