Sandra Moody Sullivan, 80, a beloved retired Williamson County teacher, died early Wednesday, July 29, 2020.
Ms. Sullivan graduated from Auburn University, where she was a singer in the Auburn Knights jazz band. After obtaining her bachelor’s degree from Auburn, she taught in Williamson County elementary and middle schools for 45 years. She was a member of the Franklin First United Methodist Church and volunteered as a tutor at the Boys and Girls Club of Middle Tennessee’s Franklin Clubhouse.
She was preceded in death by her daughter, Jennifer McGhee; parents, Thomas Calvin Moody and Isabelle Wiggs Moody; and brother, Thomas Moody Jr.
Surviving are her daughters, Lisa (Byron) Carson and Rachel Adams, and beloved dog, Bosley.
She leaves a legacy of inspiring intellectual curiosity in the children who were her students. Her wit and her compassion toward others were recognized by virtually everyone who knew her.
A private service will be held at the Historic Sanctuary of Franklin First United Methodist Church; Dr. Bryan Brooks, Dr. Lynn Hill, Dr. Vona Wilson and Rev. Sarah Carty officiating. A private burial will follow at Williamson Memorial Gardens. Due to the current public health crisis, a public celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
Memorials may be made to the Boys and Girls Club of Middle Tennessee, Franklin Clubhouse, 129 Fowlkes Street, Suite 1000, Franklin, TN 37064.
