February 4, 1931 ~ May 31, 2019 (age 88)


Willie Kathryn Sandusky, 88, of Columbia, died Friday, May 31, 2019 at her residence.

She was born February 4, 1931 in Milltown, Kentucky to the late Caleb & Lovie Leftwich Caldwell.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Billy Sandusky on September 21, 2012.  Willie Kathryn was a member of Columbia Christian Church and a homemaker.

One Son & Daughter-in-law – David & Donna Sandusky of Columbia

One Daughter – Kathy Sandusky of Columbia

Three Grandchildren – Tyler Sandusky & his wife Dezirae, Kyle Sandusky & Logan Sandusky & his fiancé Breanna Brock all of Columbia

For the Sandusky family and many who knew her, today is different.  There is something precious missing; one smile, one laugh, one sweet voice has left us.  Our bright spot is not as bright today.

Willie Kathryn was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, always considering her family first in everything she did.  She loved her home and the outdoors.  She was happiest with her family, in her home and working in her yard.

She was blessed with her newest best friend, companion and caregiver, Cathy Johnson, for the past three years.  She truly cherished their relationship daily.  As her needs progressed, she was comforted by and thankful for the excellent care and compassion given by Janice Dulworth and Vonda Derman.
