Sally Gura Doyle Obituary

 

Sally Elaine Gura Doyle, 90, passed away peacefully at her home in Dallas, Texas, surrounded by her family on February 22, 2024. Sally was born on April 26, 1933 in Struthers, Ohio to Emil and Elizabeth Gura. She is preceded in death by her sister Emmelene Gura, and is survived by her son, Patrick Doyle, her daughter Elizabeth Doyle, numerous relatives, and her beloved Yorkie, China. 

Sally led a full and exciting life. Sally auditioned and was accepted into the High School of Performing Arts in NYC and danced with New York’s American Ballet Theatre (The Ballet Theater Co.) She was part of the company’s first ever European tour that performed in Portugal and North Africa. In all, she performed all over the world and for audiences that included members of the Royal Families of England and Monaco. Sally also performed in a number of television programs and film and appeared in numerous Broadway productions.   

In addition to her dance career, Sally pursued a number of other interests, including Public Relations at Queens College, cosmetology, and Interior Design at the New York School of Design. Sally also opened ballet studios in Chicago and Dallas.  Later in life, Sally worked for Tom Thumb where she retired. 

Her role as a mother continued until her death. She showed unconditional love, generosity, and strength that was enjoyed not only by Pat and Elizabeth, but by a large number of people outside her immediate family. 

Sally’s love for animals was unmatched. She welcomed all kinds of furry and not so furry animals into her home at any given time. 

Sally’s compassion, curiosity, and since of humor were enjoyed by all she met. Her friends and family will gather to celebrate those traits, her life and many adventures at a later date.
