Sally Ann Okuly spent six months recovering from a motorcycle accident, and on the first morning she felt good enough to take a walk, she was hit and killed by a car.

NBC Washington reported the tragic accident that killed Okuly, 59, of Woodbridge, Va., occurred last Sunday morning.

Okuly, a cancer survivor, felt good enough to leave her home after enduring a long recuperation following a motorcycle crash. The mother of two children was headed to a nearby WaWa for coffee and a newspaper, according to her husband, Bill Okuly.

She crossed the street on a green light when the driver of a 2007 Jeep Wrangler failed to yield the right of way, turned left and struck her, police said.

Okuly died in the hospital the next morning.

Police charged Amanda Styles-Mays, 24, with failure to yield to a pedestrian and reckless driving.

Okuly, died a week before her 41st wedding anniversary, her husband told the news station.

"She was the most giving person ever," said Bill Okuly. He and Sally were members of the Rolling Thunder motorcycle club.

A memorial stands at the intersection where Okuly was hit. It reads, "In loving memory of our friend and neighbor, Sally Ann Okuly."

Commenters on the NBC article expressed sadness at the loss.

“Our condolences and prayers go out to the Okuly Family at the tragic loss of Sally Ann,” said one poster. “She was a kind, compassionate and giving woman who will be terribly missed by so many. Sally was a friend to everyone and a volunteer for P.W. Humane Society.”
