Obituary

 
 
 

Sandra was born in Bluefield, West Virginia on February 2, 1950. She passed away peacefully on Christmas Eve day while surrounded by her family in Decatur, Alabama at the age of 71. She was a current resident of Priceville, Alabama.

After moving from West Virginia in her early years, Sandra grew up in Middletown, Indiana where she fell in love with and married her high school sweetheart, Samuel (Sam) Ellison; and began their family. She made many life-long friends and memories in Middletown. She and her family then moved to Alabama to establish new roots and make additional lasting friendships.

Sandra was a natural caregiver and never met a stranger. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. Sandra enjoyed spending time with family, quilting with church members, visiting with friends, genealogy, weekend cookouts, Sunday drives, crafting, and lending an ear to listen to others.

Sandra was preceded in death by her parents, Lee Grat Butt and Mary Grace Butt, of Bluefield, West Virginia.

Sandra is survived by her husband of 53 years, Samuel (Sam) Ellison; her son Brad Ellison; and her daughter Jennifer Ellison, all of Priceville, Alabama. Sandra also is survived by four grandchildren: Skyler Ellison, Paxton Ellison, Makenzie Ellison, and Mason Ellison, all of whom she spoiled and adored. She is also survived by four siblings: Martin Butt (Susan Ehrlich), Noblesville, IN; Connie Messick (Todd), Morgantown, IN; Christi Butt, Atlanta, GA; and Pam Stanley, Como, MS.

Her family and friends will remember Sandra as the most amazing, organized, beautiful, irreplaceable, loving woman that was always smiling and ready for a hug. She will be missed immensely by many.

Viewing will be Thursday, December 30, 2021 from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm at the Ballard & Sons Funeral Home in Middletown, IN; with funeral services conducted immediately following, with Pastor David Waters officiating.
