Sally Chloe Grinslade Bell
1926 - 1989
Sally Chloe Grinslade Bell, born in 1926, is remembered for a lifetime of service to the Chickasaw people. Bell understood the importance of her heritage and her ancestors.
A strong belief in "learning from whence we have come and looking forward to where we need to be in the future" describes her outlook and focus. She was integral in using what she had learned from the past to help influence good for the future of the Chickasaw tribe.
Governor Overton James appointed Sally to assist in the writing of the present Chickasaw Nation Constitution, which the Chickasaw people overwhelmingly voted to accept. Her contribution to this important document exemplifies the rights and freedom of all her people.
