Cecilia Hazel “Sunny” Landry
Sunny Landry, age 85, entered into rest on Monday June 22, 2020 in Fair Oaks California. Sunny was born on December 12, 1934 in Columbus Ohio to Robert Jeremiah Sullivan and Hazel Ethel(Carroll) Sullivan. She spent her childhood years in Columbus, Carlsbad New Mexico, and Daly City California. She graduated from Jefferson High School and earned a teaching credential at San Francisco State College.
She married Warren Clark Webb on November 5, 1955. They had one son, Robert. Warren passed away in 1957.
Sunny married Lee Landry on Valentines Day, 1959, and their love story continued for over 61 years. They have three sons together, David, Kenneth, and Daniel. Lee adopted Robert in 1961. The family lived in San Francisco, San Bruno, and Bakersfield before settling in the Sacramento area in 1968.
In addition to raising her family, Sunny worked as a substitute teacher and an Avon representative before helping to found the staffing business that became the Cal Staff family of companies. She was not only an owner, but served as the President and CEO for several years.
Sunny was a wonderful pianist, and had a beautiful singing voice. She performed in a trio during college, she was a member for over ten years of The Music Ma’ams, a women’s barbershop chorale, and later sang with the Sierra Community Chorus.
Sunny was always guided and comforted by her faith, and was a parishioner at St. Mel’s Catholic Church for many years.
Sunny was an avid golfer; she and Lee were longtime members of the Northridge Country Club. She also enjoyed gardening, crafts, sewing, dancing and traveling the world.
Sunny is survived by her husband Lee Landry of Roseville, sons Robert Landry (Tracy) of Folsom, David Landry (Marilyn) of Gold River, Kenneth Landry (Mary) of Folsom, and Dan Landry (Gina) of Antelope. She is also survived by eleven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
She was unstoppable in her endeavors, irrepressible in her happiness, and boundless in her love.
The family would like to acknowledge and thank the dedicated staff of the Royal Palms Care Home of Fair Oaks, who provided her with diligent, professional, and loving care for nearly six years.

I have so many wonderful memories of Sunny. All of them feature her irresistible smile. She was sweet and caring to her friends, loving and supportive of her four sons and their families, and very clearly adored her husband of 61 years. I'll never forget all that I learned from Sunny over the 45 years I knew and loved her. Rest well, Dear Sunny.

She was “Sunny” in name and essence. Light and happy, bright and warm, golden and good.
She was both soft and strong, gentle and fierce, domestic and entrepreneurial, fiery and cool.
She sang sweetly and played cards ruthlessly.
She traveled the world, but loved being in the comfort of her beautiful home.
She was adventurous and would try anything, but she had her set ways,
She was fearless, she was elegant, she was smart,
She was and did so many things, but most important, she was the ultimate matriarch to her sons, their wives, their children and even their children. Not to mention a husband who adored her.
Thank you, Grandma, for the love you gave us all❤️ I will miss you...
