Sally Eason Wagenaar was born February 18, 1970 in Queenborough Kent, England. She grew up in England until the age of seven, when the family moved to Canada. Sally attended Westwood Collegiate High School and won many awards for her athletic abilities. After high school, she attended the University of Manitoba until meeting and marrying Jeff Wagenaar. She moved to Minnesota where she and Jeff had two daughters, Quinn (20) and Blaine (18) Wagenaar. Jeff and Sally were later divorced.
Sally held a bachelor's degree in Finance and has worked the last 14 years at Edina Realty where she was an amazing assistant and Realtor. Prior to real estate, Sally ran an in-home daycare to be able to stay home with her girls. She was an amazing woman and took incredible care of everyone she met.
On January 1, 2020 Sally was diagnosed with terminal cancer. She was put on hospice care on Friday, August 21st. She entered heaven peacefully, surrounded by her family, on Sunday, August 23, 2020.
She is survived by her mother, Margaret Luer of Winnipeg, Canada, her father, Victor Eason (Sherry) of Victoria, B.C, her sister, Jane (Kelly) Hamm of Winnipeg Canada, their children Kaitlyn and Jordan of Winnipeg Canada, her brother, Timothy (Sheila) Eason of Doha, Qatar and their four children, Katy, Mady, Bronwyn, and Cooper.
She is also survived by her pride and joy, Quinn and Blaine Wagenaar of Rochester, whom she did an incredible job of raising. Sally built her life around being the best mum anyone could be. Everything she did was centered around her girls. She had a servant's heart, and she will never be replaced.

I miss Sally’s sass. So funny. She was a wonderful friend and I was lucky to know her.
Sally was certainly one of those people you hear about that lights up a room when they enter. I had the joy of working with Sally for many years in Winnipeg in the hospitality business. Perfect occupation for a young full of energy hospitable person like Sally. When I heard the tragic news I was at work and burst out in tears. It shows you after not seeing someone for years the impact they had on others for that to have happened. I hope your daughters find comfort in the fact that so many people where amazed by your moms spirit and smile that it carried with us amazing memories decades later. If you girls are ever in Whistler Canada look me up as I’d love to share some of the amazing stories about your amazing beautiful mom. Take care and big virtual hugs to Sally’s entire family.

Sally was a wonderful person she will be greatly missed, her smile would light up the room, rest in peace, beautiful
I had the honour of working with Sally at Sorrento’s. She made every shift fun and she always had my back. My deepest condolences to her family. I remember when she told us she was training for the police and was running and working out like crazy, I was in awe of her strength and determination in everything she did. I am so grateful I was able to call her a friend. She will be missed.
Sally was a wonderful person and a delight to be around. I met her at the weight room of the RAC. I am grateful I am able to call her a friend. I will miss her greatly and send my condolences to the entire family.
