Sandra Elizabeth Worley was 69 -years-old when she danced her way over to the other side on May 18, 2018. Sandy was born in Cincinnati, Ohio to Robert and Bertha Austin on September 10, 1948. She graduated from Princeton High School, married and became a mother. She made it her mission to make a better life not for herself, but for her children as they were always her priority. Her love of her family and all children were one of the many things that defined this fierce but beautiful soul. Sandy defined herself by being the biggest cheerleader for someone, or having the strongest shoulders when someone needed them. She gave of herself without expecting anything in return. Her whole reason for being was to “lift people up”, to show them love and appreciation, to make other people smile and make their lives easier and better. Sandy loved her family deeply and she was the biggest advocates for children – didn’t matter whether they were hers or someone else’s- they were all hers! Like a magnet, children of all walks of life were drawn to her. Sandy loved to dance and she loved music, especially of the classic southern rock persuasion by bands like Little Feat, Little River Band and Bonnie Raitt.

Sandy is predeceased by her parents, Robert and Bertha Austin.

She is survived by: her son, James Darrell Worley, II and her daughter Michelle Elizabeth Ball; by her siblings, Diane Berger and David Austin; by her grandsons, Mark Sessions and James Darrell Worley, III; by her nieces, Teresa D’Aiuto, Lanie McFadden and Erica Foit; and by so many great-nieces and nephews whom she loved so much – because remember – All kids were Sandy’s kids. It goes without saying that it’s not just these names listed here who will miss Sandy. The hearts she touched during her lifetime are immeasurable and she cherished her family and friends. She will forever be an inspiration to all.

Any services for Sandy are at this time private and at the discretion of her family.
