Obituary of Sally G. Menke

Sally Grcevich Menke passed away May 25th, 2023 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. 

She was born April 17th, 1956 to Dolly and Rudolph Grcevich in East Chicago, Indiana. Sally went to high school at Bishop Noll and graduated in 1974 and moved to Colorado in 1984.

Sally is survived by her son Michael and his partner Doris, and their children, Jade, Paul, Savannah, and her sunshine, Madison. Son Mark and partner Emilie, and son Matt. Her sister Susie Denny and her five sons. Her sister Sandy, husband Bill, and their two sons and daughter, and her three godchildren Analise, JJ ,and Issac.

Sally was a passionate gardener. She earned her certification of Master Gardener and was always available for advice about plants and trees. Every spring, her living room was filled with newly planted seeds or repotted plants. Along with plants, she enjoyed the birds who visited. She always said, “If you are going to feed the birds, then all are welcome at the table.”

Sally will be remembered for her love of cooking; she loved sharing her cultural dishes of Sadma and pierogies. Holidays were her favorite time for cooking; her holiday parties were memorable, and everyone went home with a plate of her famous cookies.

The Menke home was a hub for the neighborhood. It was a safe space for family, friends, and neighborhood kids alike. She provided many lunches for hungry teenagers. Sally was characterized by her thoughtfulness towards others.
