Mary Elizabeth Sanders
Mary Elizabeth Sanders, a long time resident of Mulberry Grove, Illinois, born St. Louis, Missouri, November 10th 1944, past November 8th 2019 at Mercy hospital. Mary, A proud Patriot, fighter (5x cancer survivor), daughter of the late Charlie Thompson and Dorothy Anthony, sister of JoAnn Erselius, late Charles Thompson, Charlotte Kelly, Raymond Thompson, Joyce Black and wife of Jerry Sanders,
Mother of Deborah (David) Callow, James (Julie) Norris, Joseph (Aimee) Norris,
late Tonya M. Sanders, Jeremy (Michelle) Sanders, Joshua (Stephanie) Sanders,
Grandmother of 19 grandchildren and 11 great children.
She was not just Grandmother but the embodiment of unconditional love.
Her legacy is powerful. So powerful that it cannot be bought or sold. It has to be felt and experienced. Experienced through watching her children and them now passing this to their grandchildren. Her love runs rich and deep, defying generations. Grandma will be missed but she left us with the greatest gift of all, love that knows no bounds.
We will honor Mary Sanders’s wishes to forgo a memorial service and ask simply for prayers for her and her family. Memorial gifts may be sent to International Fellowship of Christians and Jews and/or Wounded Warriors Project.
