Sally Amspacher Royse Blake

On September 12, 2021, we lost our precious mother, wife, and dear friend, Sally Amspacher Royse Blake. Sally was born in Oklahoma City August 30, 1946.Sally grew up in Crown Heights attending Edgemere Elementary School and Harding High School, graduating in 1964. She went on to attend the University of Oklahoma where she was a proud member of Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority and was Rush Chairman in her sophomore year. Many of the friends she made in those years would go on to be her lifelong companions. After college, Sally married her high school sweetheart, Randy Royse, and they made their home in Oklahoma City. Sally was a pioneer in physical fitness during the 80's and opened her own aerobics studio where she brought health and fitness to our community. Later she became a personal trainer. Sally was passionate about golf, quilting, reading, her dogs and entertaining. Most of all, she loved her family and friends. Many will remember their Memorial Day parties. Sally married Joe Blake in 2012 and she and Joe had a loving marriage for the last 9 years of her life. They enjoyed their time together golfing, gardening, cooking, and OU Football. She was active in Crossings Church, Oklahoma City's Kappa Alpha Theta Alumnae Group, Junior League, and Oklahoma Golf and Country Club Ladies' Golf Association. She is survived by husband, Joe Blake, sons Randolph Dayton Royse, Jr. (Rip) and Phillip Michael Royse of Seattle, WA ; Joe's son Jeff, his wife Emily and their children Annie and Lucy of Oklahoma City, OK; Joe's daughter Shannon, and Robert Walker, her husband, and their children J.J., Blake, and Will of Houston, TX; her brother Mike Amspacher of Portland, OR. She was proceeded in death by her parents Betty and Jimmy Amspacher and her husband of 42 years, Randy Royse. If you were fortunate enough to have been in Sally's life, you are a better person for having known her. People who knew Sally were touched by her sincere smile, selflessness, generosity, optimism, and beautiful soul. Sally could and did brighten the day for those who were around her. Sally, you will be missed by those who loved you. The family would like to thank her caretakers Cicely Harper and Monica Butler. Services are scheduled for Friday, September 17th at 10am at Crossings Community Church. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Parkinson Foundation of Oklahoma.
