Sandra Sue Moore

October 7, 1942March 5, 2021

Sandra Sue Moore, 78, of Grandview, Missouri passed away Friday, March 5, 2021. Born October 7, 1942 in Kansas City, Missouri. She is survived by daughters Rhonda (husband James) of Belton, Missouri, Darla (husband Darin) of Kansas City, Missouri; two grandsons Thomas and Devin, sister Patty Moore; and brother-in-law Lonnie Moore; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. She is preceded in death by her granddaughter Kara Kopetsky.

She lived in the country most of her life. She had three children, her first (a son) died shortly after birth. She then had her girls, first Rhonda and then Darla. She felt blessed to have them and to be a stay at home mom. She loved being a mom.

She moved to a small farm outside of Raymore in 1974. Raised chickens and bobby calves. The bobby calves had to be bottle fed twice a day for 6 to 8 weeks. This took 5 to 6 hours a day. Besides this there was a huge garden and orchard she took care of. She canned most of what we needed. She even made ketchup. She made apple jelly and grape jelly.

She took care of the yard, fruit trees and garden. People always said our yard looked like a golf course. She took pride in whatever she did.

After the girls were grown she went to work for a food service company. She worked there until she retired. She moved to town in 2003. She said she really missed hearing the yips of the coyotes and the hoot of the owl. She loved the smell of fresh mowed hay.

She was blessed with three grandchildren whom she adored. She has gone to be with her oldest grandchild, so she is happy. She has missed her so.

She always said as long as you talk about things they did together she would live forever. She hopes her grandsons have happy memories with her. They gave her so much joy.

"My life was so good, I wish I could do it all over again. Thanks girls"

Rhonda, Darla and families,
I consider it a privilege to have had Sandy as my neighbor for all the years we lived side by side. I vividly remember the day the truck with furniture arrived and backed into the drive and I wondered "who the new people were" that were arriving. There are many memories, too numerous to mention. I will miss our phone visits, conversations and the many laughs we shared.
May God keep you his protective care as you grieve Sandy's passing and know that she won't be experiencing the sadness in the days to come. You have my sincere sympathy.

Sandy was always so nice and sweet to me at ALL of Kara’s events! Whether it was a long Kara walk from Cedar Tree Square all the way to Y Highway, or making funnel cake mix at Funnel Cakes for Kara in an endeavor to raise funds for the reward fund - she was always positive and a great force to support her Granddaughter Kara. I’m happy I had the opportunity to know and love her. Rhonda, Darla, Jim and Thomas - my thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time. My heart breaks that she didn’t get to “see” justice for Kara in the legal system. At least they are together now in Heaven. 💙

I am so sorry for your family’s loss of a special woman. I enjoyed Sandys “say how it is..straight forward personality”. I will never forget how she came into my work around Christmas time to have a shirt made to wear to a Christmas party. Needless to say the photo she had printed on the shirt was quite funny and was meant to cause much surprise to a family member. That fun personality made her so fun at all the bingo parties we attended. She would have no problem stealing the gift away if she won! Conversations were happy and heavy at times but she always said what she needed to say with a smile. She was proud of her family and loved her grandkids. She will be missed by many, thinking of all your family during this time. May she rest in peace.
