Sarah “Sally” L. (Andrews) Riffle, 85, of Wellston, passed away on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019, at Holzer Medical Center in Jackson. She was born on July 9, 1933, in McArthur, Ohio, daughter of the late David and Elizabeth (Wycoff) Andrews. Sarah was a member of the McArthur V.F.W., Post # 5299, and was most well known for her time spent cooking and waiting tables at the South End Bar in Wellston and the Big Dipper/Back-Street Diner. Sarah was a feisty spirit who enjoyed taking care of others, cooking, knitting, sewing, quilting, and baking. Her pies were out-of-this-world delicious, and her love for others was unmatched. She will be greatly missed.
