She was born on July 31, 1955 in Sewanee to Joseph and Virginia (McBee) Bennett, Sr. who preceded her in death. Sandy was a lifelong member of Sewanee Church of God.
Sandy was a mama to everyone. She was your best friend or your worst enemy. Sandy loved traveling, going on cruises and experiencing new things. She was the helper of the family, willing to do anything for anyone at anytime. She loved listening to music, dancing, and watching old movies. She enjoyed going to yardsales and thrift stores looking for that special find. When she wasn't riding ATV's with her grandkids, she loved having her porch sittings with her siblings and loved ones. They would argue, play cards, eat, and have the best time. She never wanted to miss an event in her grandkids lives. She'd be in the front row cheering the loudest. She is loved by her family and many others and will be missed.
