With fond memories of the Leadbetter Family, your mother will be missed. As kids we were always welcomed into your home. Many mornings at the kitchen table we would find homemade biscuits, liver-mush, butter and molasses. On Saturdays we girls would gather in front of the TV to watch American Bandstand and dance. And, never once were we run off. And we could always be found playing in the woods or the creek. God Bless you Sadie, thank you for being part of my child hood memories. Much Love

I remember her faithfulness to serve God, be at church every time she could, tried to bring her family with her. I also remember her singing and it always came from her heart. RIP Ms. Sadie. God Bless all your family they were blessed to have you in their life. Love and prayers.

Sadie was a sweet and dear lady. We went to church together, and I loved hearing her Sang He Touched Me! Sadie go rest in peace, you are with the Lord now and I will see you again. Love Ken and Brenda
