MORRIS—Sandra Sue Bennett (Sandy), 73, of Morris passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, June 16, 2022, surrounded by her loving family. 
She was born on Nov. 14, 1948 to Denward and Robertine Little in Weeksbury, KY. Sandy worked most of her life in management and excelled at it. She enjoyed life to the fullest. Her interests included working in her yard, riding the Harley with her husband, and she loved decorating her home for Christmas.
