Sally Luderman Obituary

Luderman, Sally Jane 3/1/1951-1/31/2024 of Wyoming, MI passed away at the University of Michigan Metro West hospital after complications from a stroke with her husband by her side.

Sally (Wilburn) grew up in Overland Park, KS with two older and two younger brothers. She graduated in 1969 from high school and went on to graduate from college at Pittsburg State College in Pittsburg, KS. Sally followed in her father’s footsteps working in Sales where she became very successful! She was working with 3M office products and 3M Billboard Advertising. During that time, she met her soulmate and future husband, Larry on a first date attending a KC Royals baseball game. Sally’s outgoing personality, free spirit and infectious laughter led Larry to fall in love with her.  Over the next several years, Sally worked as a Pharmaceutical Representative for Sandoz Labs in Columbus, OH, CW Mills as a sales consultant in Michigan and eventually spent 17 years working for Costco as a Marketer in sales and eventually as a cashier assistant.  She retired in October 2023. 

When Larry and Sally moved to Michigan in May 1990 they bought a home in a new development and fell in love with the area.  They met new friends and helped develop a monthly Bunko party.  In April 1995, Larry and Sally eloped at the Bali’s wedding chapel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Their announcement to the family led into a celebration of a lifetime. Sally was best known for her love of working, decorating, gardening and spending time with family and friends. She loved to entertain others, loved being entertained, sitting on the patio playing Michigan dominos with neighbors and traveling to OH and KS to see family and friends. 

Sally was preceded in death by her mother Margaret Wilburn (1995), father John Wilburn (2004) and her older brother Johnny Wilburn in (2021).

She is survived and deeply missed by her husband Larry, her brother Fred Wilburn of Stillwell, KS and Nephews Randy and Chris from California and Oregon, her brother Tim Wilburn of Spring Hill, KS, her younger brother Dan Wilburn (Laurie) as well as her niece Meah and nephew Hudson from Lake Winnebago, MO.

She is also deeply missed by her Sister/Brother in-laws and many nieces and nephews.

A Celebration of Life with Family and friends will be held at a later date. Donations can be made to the Alzheimer Society or the American Stroke Association in Sally’s name.
