Sandra Kay Taylor, age 65, left this mortal life to enter her Eternal home on August 19, 2014 after a long battle with Alzheimer's Disease and other health issues.
She was born in Nashville, TN in 1948 and spent most of her life here, graduating from Hillsboro High School in 1966, and from MTSU with a nursing degree in 1969. She worked at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital, attending to many very critically ill children, and at Centennial Medical Center, assisting in birthing babies there, including four of her five nieces and nephews. Sandra had a very full and loving life, giving her all to many patients both here and in Zimbabwe, where she lived and worked with underprivileged children for over three years in the mid-1980s. She also lived in Salt Lake City, Utah for several years, working at Salt Lake Children's Hospital there.
Sandra was a lifelong member of Belmont United Methodist Church and volunteered there for a number of years after her retirement in the early 2000s. She was very involved in the Multicultural Fellowship at church and enjoyed meeting and knowing friends of all races and diversities. She always had a smile on her face and was a wonderful daughter, sister, and aunt. She will be greatly missed by all those whose path she crossed.
Sandra was preceded in death by her mother and father, Daisy G. and Robert L. Taylor.
She is survived by her sister, Judy (Lou) Ullrich, and her brothers, Bob (Nancy) and Jerry (Beth) Taylor. She is also survived by five nieces and nephews, Meghan (Taylor) McGuire, Scott Taylor, Cody Taylor, Stephanie Taylor, and Blake Taylor, and one great niece, Lyla Grace McGuire.
The family wishes to thank her long-time doctor, Dr. Tracy Doering, as well as the staff of Mary, Queen of Angels assisted living facility for the loving care they gave to Sandra over the years.
