Sally (Warehime) Yelland

Hanover, Pa.


Sally and her husband, Bruce, live in Hanover.  They have two children and three granddaughters. They met, “After graduation from Katharine Gibbs in New York, I worked at American Can Co. where a co-worker introduced me to Bruce at one of our TGIF parties. We moved back to Hanover after purchasing my grandfather’s business, the J. F. Rohrbaugh Co., in 1962, and have loved living here ever since.”


Sally was a V.P. of Tradition House, Inc., and a V.P. of ARWCO Corp., and she’s semi retired. Bruce was President of Rohrbaugh Co. , and he is retired. Her hobbies are golf, travel, reading, and winters in Naples, Florida.  Sally is Director, Clearview Terrace, Inc. --- a low income housing facility presently building Phase III. She points out that Jack Schuler served on its first Board of Directors.  She and Bruce have traveled extensively throughout the USA including Hawaii and to Canada, Central America, Europe, Russia, and the Caribbean.


Sally is proud of, “We are extremely proud of our children --- son Steve who is the fourth generation at the Rohrbaugh Co. and daughter Ann who is a psycho-therapist, in her own business in New Jersey. I am also very proud of the accomplishments and opportunities for women occurring in our generation. Very few women in our mothers’ generation worked outside the home, and today the majority of our daughters have careers. We are somewhat of a transitional generation and we have ‘come a long way’. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to own a business and enjoyed working with our employees, who were proud of their craftsmanship. There is a ‘signed’ Tradition House mahogany cocktail table in the American Embassy in Moscow.”


Her message for her classmates is, “Although I did not graduate with you from EHS, I treasure the many friendships made. I met Barbara Ebaugh Mouring in kindergarten and Carolyn Crooks Hooper in first grade. To this day, they and their husbands remain our dear friends. It was through their invitation that I attended my first EHS reunion many years ago, and through the persuasiveness of your ‘smooth talking’ president and vice president, I am now your class treasurer.”


Sally graduated from the Baldwin School in Bryn Mawr, Pa., attended University of Wisconsin, and graduated from the Katharine Gibbs School in New York. Bruce has a BS from Drexel University.
