Sarah Hepola

September 1, 1928 — April 24, 2022

Sally was born on September 1, 1928, to Frank and Noella Hall in Little Falls, MN. She went to St. Cloud Teachers College and became a 4th Grade Teacher in Sebeka, MN where she met her future husband, Donald Hepola. They were married in Little Falls and moved to Eden Prairie, MN" in 1962. She and Don raised six children there. Sally’s mom taught her to play the piano, and Sally accompanied many vocal groups over the years, from high school through her adult years when she accompanied the singing group ‘The Harmonettes’ (renamed 'The New Jubilee Singers'). Sally and Don had many good years together. When Don retired, they split their time between summers at the cabin on Duck Lake, MN and winters at their home in Mesa, AZ. She was preceded in death by: her husband, Don; her son, Mark; and her daughter in law Twyla (Paul). Sally is survived by her children: John (Tracy), Bemidji, MN; Paul, Menahga, MN; jean Gibbs (Mark), Waconia, MN, Sue Umhoefer (Mark), Hartland, Wl, and Dale, Bemidji, MN. She is also survived by her grandchildren: Sarah, Brady, Matt, JJ, Jennifer, Greg, Joe, Danny, and Shane, along with her great grandchildren Runa, Hans, Asher, Bear, and Autumn. Sally was very special and made friends wherever she went. She was a very positive person, had an independent spirit, was high energy, and was incredibly welcoming and caring. She was one of those people who rarely had a bad day. We will miss her deeply.
