Mike Holloway officiating. Interment will follow in the Community of Christ Church Cemetery in Eros, LA.
Mrs. Stuckey was born on December 6, 1963, in Monroe, LA and passed away on March 16, 2023, in Houston, TX.
She was a faithful and devoted follower of Christ. Her family is thankful to the Lord for her salvation and redemption through the blood of Jesus. Apart from her faith in the Lord, her family was the most important thing in her life. Her family was her pride and joy and her ultimate earthly blessing. She loved to spend time with her husband, children, and grandchildren. If she wasn’t spending her time with her family, she was spending time with her church family at Ouachita Baptist Church in West Monroe, LA, where she had many beloved friends.
She was a nurse for 35+ years and saw her job as a mission field. She allowed the Lord to use her as a vessel and witnessed to and prayed over countless work friends and patients throughout her career. Her favorite place to be was the beach. If she couldn’t go to the beach, she could be found in a deer stand.
Sandy is preceded in death by her parents, Redmond and Marie Thornell; and brother, Kenneth Thornell.
Survivors include her husband, Danny Stuckey; daughters, Lindsay Mathews and husband Frank, and Alexis Bosely and husband Blake; grandchildren, Kypton and Graysha Mathews, Loen Bosely, and Baby Bosely who is on the way; sister, Barbara Shurling and husband Reg; brother, Sheldon Thornell and wife Nichole; and uncle, George Phillips and wife Betty.
