Susan Lyon Sandidge, 78, Metcalfe County, KY (1943-2021)

What an obituary often doesn't say is how the world blossomed when the deceased had shared their life and brought others into the world. It doesn't say that Sue was a lovely Missourian brought home to Edmonton by an awesome cousin, Pinkey Sandidge, to be welcomed by his mother, Isabelle and grandmother Addie Turner Leftwich, and all the rest of us. Sue was one of our Edmonton girls and she will be missed by all the family. - Linda Waggener
