Obituary for Sally Marie Howell

Sally Marie Howell, 73, of Mount Carmel, Illinois, passed away Thursday, April 6, 2023, at Wabash Christian Retirement Center in Carmi, Illinois, with her loving family by her side. She was born on May 20, 1949 in Olney, Illinois, daughter of Melvin and Nadine (Harper) Crackel. She married Kenny Howell on May 4, 1968, at Browns Church and together they have enjoyed almost fifty-five years of marriage.

Sally was a loving wife, mom, and Ninny. She enjoyed baking, especially during the holidays, as she was well known for her delicious treats and candies. Sally enjoyed playing cards and board games with her kids and grandkids. She and Kenny enjoyed boating and camping. They often got in the car and took long drives to wherever they were led that day. Sally had a smile for everyone she met and a loving heart to her family and friends. Her presence on this earth will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

Sally leaves behind her husband, Kenny; son, Todd Howell; daughters, Natalie Howell and friend, Nathan Newsum, Ali Martin and husband, Lee; four grandchildren, Ryan (Paige Morehead) Allen, Blake Allen, Kiarra Martin, and Judd Martin; one sister, Nancy (Eric) Rasmussen.
