In memory of
Sally Bower Reeves
REEVES, Sally Bower Sally Bower Reeves was born November 22, 1933, in the Lock Haven, Pennsylvania area. She courageously battled and took cancer head on for 32 years until passing peacefully in her sleep on June 8, 2019, at the age of 85. "Tally", as her grandchildren called her, was the oldest of five children. She was the daughter of United States Army Lieutenant Colonel Robert Irvin Bower and Sarah Blesh Bower. After attending fourteen grade schools, she and her family eventually settled in Vicksburg, Mississippi. Following high school graduation, Sally and a few friends headed west to Denton, Texas, where they attended Texas Women's University. With a degree in Art History, Sally was hired by Nieman Marcus and worked directly with Mr. Edward Marcus as his personal assistant. She also worked with Mr. Marcus's wife, Betty, as well as Lupe Murchison. Their involvement with the Dallas Museum of Art and their mutual love of art created great working relationships. In the late 1950s she met and married the love of her life, George Moss Reeves, Jr. They had two children, Camie and Gig, and they spent the rest of their lives in Dallas enjoying the family's growth and special memories. Sally was preceded in death by her parents, Robert Irvin and Sarah Bower, her sister, Janice Bower, her brother, Robert C. Bower, and George Reeves, Jr. Survivors include her brothers, William B. Bower and James R. Bower, daughter, Cameron "Camie" Reeves Brickhouse and husband Blake Brickhouse, son, George "Gig" Moss Reeves III and his wife Lindsay Stewart Reeves and their sons, George Cameron, Christian Moss, and Caiden Baxter and their daughter, Campbell. Sally has an enormous family of nieces, nephews, and extended family members that were of equal importance to her. On Sally's behalf, we would like to thank her care team from Faith Presbyterian Hospice and the care givers and other guests at her group home for their 24-hour, unconditional love, unimaginable patience, and angelic care. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 15, at 10:00 a.m., in Cox Chapel at Highland Park United Methodist Church, 3300 Mockingbird Lane, Dallas, Texas 75205. A reception will follow in Cox Parlor. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the charity of your choice.
