Sally Malloy Gray, a well known Ardmore author and recorder of local historical information, died Friday, October 1, 2010, in the local hospital after a sudden illness. Daughter of the late Samuel E. and Ida King Malloy, she was born January 13, 1923, at Ava, Missouri. An Ardmore resident most of her adult life, she came here from Stillwater, Oklahoma, where she had attended Oklahoma State University. She and Roger K. Gray were married January 15, 1952, at Ardmore; he died April 10, 2007. Formerly a reporter and member of the editorial staff of The Daily Ardmoreite, Mrs. Gray was an author and worked with the Ardmore Historic Preservation Board and the Ardmore Main Street Authority, where she helped form the Walking Tours of Downtown Ardmore. She was known for her extensive knowledge of Ardmore and the surrounding area. She had written a local history entitled, "Territory Town, the Story of Ardmore." A member of St. Philip's Episcopal Church, she enjoyed gardening, reading, genealogy and history. Survivors include a son and daughter-in-law, Keith and Robin Gray, Ardmore; two daughters: Shannon and Gary Barker, Madill, Oklahoma; and Terry Fitzgerald, County Kerry, Ireland; grandchildren: Bret Turner, Madill; Christy and Daithi Fitzgerald, County Kerry, Ireland; a great-granddaughter, Haylee G.
