Shirley “Sally” Marie Brueckner (Betts), 90, peacefully passed away on December 27, 2020, at St. Anthony’s hospital with her family by her side. She was born October 2nd, 1930, in Alton, IL. Sally was the beloved wife of Miles Brueckner for 56 years. They were married on March 19, 1950. He preceded her in death on February 14, 2006. She was also preceded in death by her brother, James Betts. Sally was the daughter of James and Cleopatra Betts. She was a devoted member and the church secretary for many years at Faith Lutheran Church in Godfrey, Illinois. She enjoyed going to Alton Little Theater, attending church on Saturday evenings, completing crossword puzzles, and going out to dinner with her friends. She was a beloved grandmother and great grandmother and very much enjoyed spending time with and entertaining her grandchildren. She had a strong faith, always smiling, and often encouraged people to see the good in others. Sally was proud of her family letting each one know how special they were to her. She will be remembered for her kindhearted ways. We have no doubt she is rejoicing in heaven and raising a glass to “toast” all of those she is happy to see again. Sally is survived by a daughter, Susan Barbary, and a son, David (Brenda) Brueckner. Sally is also survived by six grandchildren, Jamie (Matthew) Baugh, Jeremy (Rita) Barbary, Joshua (Jessica) Barbary, Matthew (Leah) Brueckner, Kristen (Matthew) Toner, Bradley (Jessica) Brueckner.

A private visitation will be 9AM until time of service at 10 AM Thursday, December 31, 2020 , at Faith Lutheran Church in Godfrey, IL. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Faith Lutheran Church in Godfrey.
