Sallie “Nana” Pragg SchlosburgApril 1, 1931 ~ November 7, 2017 (age 86)
Sallie “Nana” Pragg Schlosburg, 86, of Macon, Georgia passed away on November 7, 2017 after a valiant battle with cancer. Sallie was born in Shaker Heights, Ohio, to Rose and Herman (Pat) Pragg as the younger of two children including her sister Elinore.
Sallie graduated from Shaker Heights High School and attended the University of Illinois. She married the one love her life, Marion “Papa” Schlosburg in 1953 after a two week engagement. A wedding soon followed with an impromptu appearance by the New York Yankees as they began a wonderful life full of surprises and adventure as they moved south to Georgia.
She is survived by her daughters Carla Seufert, Ann (Rob) Levy, and Gail (Rob) Murphy, and by her grandchildren Jessica, Jonathan, Katie, Michael, Richard, and Eric, as well as five great grandchildren.
Sallie was a loyal fan of the Auburn Tigers, Atlanta Falcons, and the Braves. A regular voting poll volunteer, she was always ready to bend an ear with a hearty discussion of politics. Sallie was also everyone’s mother as her home was the place to be for many of her daughters’ friends.
Sallie was an active member of Temple Beth Israel Sisterhood and supported her friends and her community whenever she could. Sallie was loved and adored by many and her memories will be cherished by all who knew her.
She and her family are grateful to the Oncology nursing staff at Northside Hospital-Forsyth whose gracious care filled her final days with dignity and love. Her Oncologist gave us years of added time for which we are all grateful.
