Colorful Sally Zastrow is committed to her community

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Sally Oakes Zastrow has her own coat of many colors. Actually, it’s a colorful collection of T-shirts from all the organizations she continues to be a part of. You’ll find her in pink, purple or a rainbow of colors in support of some of the most active organizations in the area. The Lockport resident recently celebrated her 80th birthday at the Wrights Corners Volunteer Fire Co. installation dinner, where she was an honored guest. They presented Sally with an award for 25 years of service, and she is now a life member of the organization.

Originally from North Tonawanda, Sally moved to Lockport as a teen and has never looked back. She graduated from Lockport High School and is one of Lockport’s biggest boosters.

Married and a mother of two, Sally worked at Newfane Hospital as an X-ray technician and in the occupational therapy department at Buffalo State Hospital before going to work at Harrison Radiator.

After several years working in the factory, Sally was accepted into the skilled trades apprenticeship program and was only the second female apprentice in the Lockport plant. Leading the way for other females in the skilled trades, she worked as a General Motors electrician until the mid-1990s. No stranger to working hard for a living, Sally still found time to be involved in the lives and activities of her family and community.

The multi-talented Sally is the ultimate volunteer. Before her 25 years with the Wrights Corners Ladies Auxiliary volunteer organization, she spent 15 years as a member in South Lockport Volunteer Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary, and her years of involvement to fire service are not limited to these local companies. Sally has served and held elected offices in both Niagara County Ladies Auxiliary and New York State Ladies Auxiliary Associations. At Wrights Corners, Sally can be found every week as part of the Thursday night Bingo crew and often supervises and assists in the kitchen for catered events held at the fire hall.
