Sally Land Daughdrill, age 72, passed away late Thursday evening, April 27, 2023, at the Jefferson Davis Community Hospital in Prentiss. The family will announce a memorial service at a later date.

Mrs. Daughdrill was born on April 11, 1951, in Tupelo, to Jesse Clifton and Sarah Pridemore Land.  Sally graduated from Clinton High School and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Home Economics, with a Minor degree in Science.  Having a love for both children and education, she served for many years as the Food Service Director for Jefferson Davis County Public Schools.  In addition, Sally also taught Science and Career Discovery in Crystal Springs and Brookhaven Public Schools.  Her girls have fond memories of their mother coaching softball when they were younger and enjoying several championships along the way.  One of Sally’s favorite things to do was listen to the “Oldies” and her friends will remember how she expressed the music with her hands.  Sally was also a great cook and her family remarks that her Turkey and Dressing was the dish that all of her family look forward to, especially at Thanksgiving.  Sally was loved by all who knew her and will be missed by many.

Sally was preceded in death by her parents, Jesse and Sarah Land.
