Spouse: Mickey Sanders RHS '57 Deceased

After graduation from Russell, I began working at Internal Revenue Service in Atlanta.


In 1962, I married Mickey Sanders (Class of '57), and we have three sons and two grandchildren, a girl and a boy.  We moved from East Point to Henry County in 1988.


After Mickey and I married, I transferred to Ft McPherson, and retired in 2005 as a Human Resources Specialist (Military) with 32 years service, taking off a few years now and then to have children,  I was working during our initial deployments to Iraq, arond the clock more than once, and I have a special place in m heart for our soldiers.


Mickey worked for AirCond, Inc., which does industrial heating and air conditioning.  He retired in June 2005 and I a month later.  We purchased a beautiful 34-foot trailer and planned to travel, enjoy our grandchildren, and generally enjoy life.


Mickey died in January 2006 from a heart attack helping our next-door neighbors move furniture.  He was 6'2" and weighted 22.  Strong man in the prime of life.  I miss him every day.


I spend my time running three miles a day (started that a Ft McPherson --it's encouraged).  I line dance several days a week, and attend a lot of dances at various places around Atlanta.  I volunteer at Henry Medical Center, belong to the Red Hats, and a federal employee organization.  I am always busy taking care of a home, and I enjoy spending time with friends.
