My heart hurts for Beth and Abbie, and the rest of the family.
Mrs.Taylor was a wonderful home economics teacher to me, back in the day. I recall she was a kind woman who always seemed to have a smile on her face, and she will be missed by those who had the pleasure of knowing her.

Deepest condolences to Pat and all of Sandra's family. What a wonderful legacy of service she left. My memory of her in high school was of a fun loving girl. And she was my "big sister" in Alpha XI Delta at UTK.
Although I didn't have direct connection with her all the intervening years, I did enjoy seeing Facebook posts.

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Sandi at Lakeside for many years. We were a family during those years. She was a wonderful and funny lady with a big heart. She will be missed. So sorry it was too late when I heard to plan to come to her memorial. You will be in my thoughts and prayers

I started my career as a Family & Consumer Science teacher and FCCLA Advisor in 2004. My cousin, Jackie Cadle, first introduced me to Mrs. Taylor when she was the state president. Mrs. Taylor was amazing! She knew so much and was always willing to go out of her way to help. Her legacy will live on through the thousands of people she touched and taught to be better parents, friends and community leaders. She will be missed!

Your mother made such an impression on me. She helped me become a good seamstress (press those seams flat!) and I later made my maternity clothes and clothes for my children. She taught me to fold a fitted sheet properly- a skill that still amazes my family. She was kinds and genuinely interested in teaching us life skills. My thoughts are with you as you grieve this loss.

Very sorry to hear of your great loss. I have good memories of Sandra during our years at Bearden High School as a very kind person. I was glad to read of her successful, productive life.

I went to high school with Sandra and her younger sister (Pat and I were in the same class). I had no idea Sandi had had such an outstanding career as we had not had any contact with each other since high school. But somehow I'm not surprised as I remember her as being a very personable gal. My condolences to her family and to sister Pat.

Sandi was such an inspiration to everyone. Teachers, administrators, students and others she met along the way. Her sense of humor and her honesty are two things I will remover about her. She always sent me a birthday card! How special is that? As dedicated as Sandi was to UT I am to UGA so e had plenty of trash talk over the years. As much as I wii itch and scratch, I will be wearing Tennessee Orange for her. Our Family and Consumer Science teachers “family” will miss Sandi and the joy she brought to our lives.

Thru my friendship with Elizabeth I have had the pleasure of talking to Sandra both on phone, text and the mighty FaceBook. And we shared a love for Sam Elliott.

Elizabeth and Abbie, my heart breaks for you. Strong hugs.
