Sandra Moody Sullivan obit

Sandra Moody Sullivan, a beloved retired Williamson County teacher, died early Wednesday, July 29, 2020 at the age of 80. 

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. 

Ms. Sullivan was preceded in death by her daughter, Jennifer McGhee; her parents, Thomas Calvin Moody and Isabelle Wiggs Moody; and her brother, Thomas Moody Jr. 

Surviving are her daughters, Lisa (Byron) Carson and Rachel Adams, and her beloved dog, Bosley. She leaves a legacy of inspiring intellectual curiosity in the children who were her students. Her wit and her compassion towards 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 the 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.
