Sally Ann Keays

August 23, 1945 - June 11, 2018


Sally Ann Keays Sally Ann Keays, formerly Sally Stoller, born Sally Hilstrom, died in her home on June 11, 2018, surrounded by many loving family members and friends and her beloved dog, Winston. She was born in Quincy, Massachusetts, on August 23, 1945. A true child of the 1960s, Sally hitchhiked from the East Coast to Berkeley, where she lived in a commune and participated in many anti-war and civil rights protests. She also spent time in Northern California, where she was part of the spiritual community on Mount Shasta. Sally’s first husband, Jim Stoller, was an accomplished boat builder and carpenter. Sally and Jim had two children, Jude and Heideeflower. They lived in a 13-foot trailer in Alaska for three years before settling down in Seattle, where Sally worked for an environmental testing lab and pursued her studies at Shoreline Community College and University of Washington. Sally met her second husband, Grant Keays, when she spent an evening in the Lund Pub during a sailing trip. They had one child, Jesse Michael. Sally and Grant were part of the loose coalition of radical environmental activists sometimes referred to as the “Powell River Seven.” Sally also developed a vast knowledge of alternative medicine and was employed at Kelly’s health food store for many years. She became a respected health advisor who many in this community went to with their health concerns. She was also a Reiki practitioner and an active participant in Red Cedar Circles. Sally was a force of nature. She was outrageous, irreverent, intelligent, compassionate, loving and spiritual, and she had a wonderful laugh. She was a good friend and was well loved by many. Sally loved the bluffs in front of her house, good books, her community, and her family. Above all, Sally loved her grandchildren: Sadie Flower Bruton, Sienna Grace Keays and Bowen Grant Keays. A memorial service will be held at 2 pm on Sunday, June 24, at Sally’s home.
