Sisters Becky Kittell (Grandview, MO) & Nicole (Bryan) Deleve (Overland Park, KS);
Sister-in-Law Trisha Pate (Gladstone, MO); her children- Jasinda (Steve) Coakley (Raymore,
MO), Marrisa (Alex) Irvin (Eagleville, MO), John (Taylor) Cunningham (Lee’s Summit, MO),
Step-Son Adam (Jahala) Meyer (Warrensburg, MO), 10 Grandchildren- Kendra, Gavin, Emma,
Vinny, Kellan, Declan, Olivia, Sophia, Elliot, and Dorian, great grandson Ayden, the special love
of her life, Missy, and numerous nieces and nephews as well as “adopted” family members of
which she would never call them that.
She was preceded in death by her mother and father, Patricia (Tyler) Reed, her brothers,
John and Steve Pate, Aunts and Uncles, and Grandparents.
Sandy began her life in Little Rock, AR. born to Patricia (Weaver) Reed and Larry Pate.
She spent most of her childhood and teen years in Missouri, graduating from Ruskin High
School in 1983. She gave birth to her first daughter Jasinda in 1984, her second daughter
Marrisa in 1988, and finally her son John in 1991. Her children were her pride and joy, and even
more so when they gave her grandchildren! Sandy spent some of her adult life in Texas but
always made her way back home to Missouri to be around her family. She married her husband
Aaron in June of 2016 among family and friends.
She held many jobs, including management roles in retail, as well as the joy of working
in her family’s construction business, where she was able to spend many days with her mom
and younger sister. One of her favorite jobs was managing a local skating rink, Skateland,
where she built many friendships that turned into family. The memories and stories from working
there are too many to count. Sandy made friends that turned into family at almost every job she
worked. No matter Sandy's occupation, she was a hard worker who gave her all to everything.
Sandy was a caring and thoughtful person who did not know a stranger. She held strong
in her faith that she was put on this earth to help wherever she could if that meant sharing a
meal, giving away her own personal items so others would have, or literally moving you in so
you had a place to stay. She loved her family deeply and enjoyed spending time with them any
chance that she could. She especially loved playing Grandma/MeMaw to her grandchildren and
spent countless hours visiting, calling, and video chatting with them. She enjoyed watching birds
and working in the yard when she was able. Gardening with her mother was something she
always talked about doing.
Services will be held at Fellowship Church in Raymore, MO, on January 20, 2024. The
family will welcome family and friends for a visitation at 10 A.M. with a Celebration of Life at 11
A.M. The family would like to invite you to wear purple or the color that reminds you of Sandy to
the service. The family would also like you to join them for a small meal and refreshments
immediately following the service, which will be held in the Raymore Fellowship Church
