Downtown Lowell Clothier Sally Birke Passes On

In today’s Sun we learned of the passing of Sally Birke – who along with her husband Nathan – owned Birke’s clothing store in downtown Lowell. As noted in obituary ~

“Her awareness of her customers’ likes and dislikes and her sense of style and taste combined with her friendliness and small food treats, won her the affection of a wide variety of people. Often two or three generations from the same family would speak of her with special fondness.”

The Lowell Historical Society would like to offer her fans and customers the opportunity to share a story or fond remembrance of Sally Birke here on the blog in the comment section.
