Sandra Elaine Henson Davis, 77, of Franklin, passed away on Monday, March 14, 2022, along with her two beloved kitties, Tom-Tom and Moonie.
Born in Macon County, she was the daughter of the late Thomas Andrew and Elizabeth Lillian Keyes Henson. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a sister, Betty Jeanne Henson Taylor. Sandra had a great love for all animals and volunteered with Friends of Animals for a number of years. She was an excellent cook, very witty, and enjoyed landscaping, planting flowers, rock collecting, gospel music, singing and dancing. Above all Sandra loved her family and friends. If you were someone she loved, she loved you fiercely.
Sandra worked various jobs in Macon County, NC, including Van Raalte, Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory, and at Wachovia Bank. However, her “career” and love was the time she spent as a sales director at Nashville Express Tours, along with other tour companies in Asheville, and Bardstown, KY. She thrived and excelled at her job, was well-known and sought after in the tourism industry. She was especially proud of the fact that she had an office facing and directly on Music Row. One of her favorite things about this was watching the yet to hopefully be discovered artists, carrying their guitars as they went from door to door.
Although she struggled with numerous health issues and adversities, she never waivered in her faith in God and that He would deliver her just as He delivered His own son, Jesus Christ.
She is survived by her daughter, Janet Davis Sutton (William Smith) of Sylva, NC; sister, Ronda Henson Bingham (Ken Bingham) of Franklin, NC; and step granddaughter, Amanda Smith Poteet Jared Poteet) of Chattanooga, TN. Also surviving are two nephews, Jimmy Graham, and Jamie Taylor; and a great niece, who she just adored, “Charlie” Graham, all of Franklin.
A small private family service was held and officiated by Rev. Don Moffitt prior to a burial ceremony at Rush Cemetery.
A celebration of life may be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Appalachian Animal Rescue or Macon County Senior Services (Attn: Meals on Wheels) would be appreciated.
