Obituary

Sandra K. Highley of Washington, Missouri and formerly of Cuba, Missouri was born December 14, 1950 in St. Louis, Missouri to the union of Raymond G. and Gertrude M. (Diedrich) Turner. She left from this life on Wednesday, November 4, 2020 having received the Last Rites of the Catholic Church and surrounded by her family at Mercy Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri at the age of 69 years.

Sandra was united in marriage to Larry Wayne Highley on December 23, 1978 in a double ceremony with Larry’s brother, Stanley and her best friend Debra. From this 26 year union came three children, Jason, Aron and Rebecca.

Sandra’s working career included time working in movie theaters in St. Louis as a teen to making candy at Sunline in Affton, Missouri, and eventually retiring after working on the electronics line at VonWeise Gear in St. Clair, Missouri. She enjoyed painting, drawing, reading, watching the Food Network channel, cooking and spending time with her family and friends.

Through all she endured, her kindness never turned to bitterness and her bright blue gemstone eyes never dimmed. Her smile was always bright and her arms always open for the biggest of hugs no matter who you were.

Sandra was extremely talented in many creative hobbies. Not only was she a talented cook, who loved all of her kitchen gadgets dearly, but a gifted draftsperson and artist. Through her skill in drawing and painting, Sandra often created portraits, landscapes, and nature pieces as gifts for her loved ones and friends.

Sandra was preceded in death by her parents Raymond G. and Gertrude M. (Diedrich) Turner; her adoptive second mother, Ruth Lantree; two adopted sisters, Joyce Douglas and Linda Graf; one adopted brother, Don Cox; brother-in-law Stanley Highley.

Those who are left to treasure her memory and to continue her legacy are three children Jason Highley and wife Billie Crider of Cuba, Missouri, Aron Highley of Springfield, Missouri, Rebecca Highley and significant other Sean Barton of Washington, Missouri; three grandchildren Michael, Haylie and Savana; one brother Michael and wife Pat Turner of St. Louis, Missouri; one sister-in-law Debra Highley of Fenton, Missouri; four nephews Adam Turner and wife Kattie of St. Louis, Missouri; Josh Duggan and wife Teri of Millstadt, Illinois, Kenny Highley and wife, Tammy of Cuba, and Eric Highley and wife Kristin of Columbia, Missouri; six great-nephews Winston and Ignatius Turner; Kenny, Jacob, Evan, and Easton Highley; seven great nieces Kaylah Highley, Sandra, Samantha, Makaila and Hannah Duggan, Brooklyn and Amelia Highley; several friends and loving neighbors.

She was wonderful and will be missed and loved forever as she had loved us.

Memorial Visitation will be held on Saturday, November 14, 2020 from 1-3 p.m. at Mizell Funeral Home 904 W. Washington St. Cuba, Missouri.

Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, November 14, 2020 3:00 p.m. at Mizell Funeral Home.
