Sally A. Larson (Milliken), our cherished sister, aunt and cousin, died peacefully at the Stanley Tippett House surrounded by friends on December 13, 2017 in Needham, MA, at the age of 63. She was the beloved wife to the late Larry Larson, and dear sister to her twin Scott Milliken, the late Parker "Buzzy" Milliken and the late Candace Milliken.

Born on February 21, 1954, she was the daughter to the late Parker G. Milliken of Needham and the late Irene Elizabeth Milliken (O'Brien) of Needham. Sally graduated from Needham High School in 1973, and later achieved a degree from Mt. Ida College in Newton. Sally was thoughtful, kind and generous, always a bright light in the lives of her family and friends. Always greeted you with a "Hi Doll" and a big smile. Sally was a longtime employee of Lane Sofman D.D.S, where she worked as an Office Manager and Dental Assistant, and was loved by her co-workers and patients alike. She met the love of her life, the late Larry Larson, and they quickly married, and resided in Brockton, MA with their dog Missy, cherishing the years they had together.

Sally is survived by her twin brother Scott Milliken of Needham, sister-in-law Nancy Milliken and their children Brett and Kacey, also sister-in-law Deborah Milliken of Brockton, wife of the late Parker Milliken, and their children Tyler and Mariah.

Second cousin to Heather, and her husband Sean Brown, and Betsy Carlton Gison and her husband Joel Gison. Dear friend to Fran Fruzzetti, Gary Hagopian, Carol and Abraham Adhadmom, and their lovely family, Dorothy Shapiro and her loving family, Janice Burns, Evelyn Garrity and Nancy and Jim Collins.

Family and friends are cordially invited to attend visitation and celebration of her life at the Eaton Funeral Home, 1351 Highland Ave, Needham on Tuesday, December 19th from 9:00-10:00 am, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial in St. Joseph's Church at 10:00.
