Sandra Sue McBee, age 82, passed away on Saturday, June 25, 2022. She was born in Elkins, West Virginia on February 27, 1940, to the late Howard Ben Fluharty and Madaline White Fluharty. On September 27, 1958, she married Kenneth McBee. In 2000, she retired from the Kentucky State Government, Department for the Blind, Business Enterprise Program, after 29 years of service. Sandra was known for her sharp wit and sense of humor, along with determination that was never-ending. Sandra also excelled at hospitality. She opened her home and pool to many celebrations throughout the years, from birthday and graduation parties to the numerous baseball, softball and soccer team banquets. She welcomed anyone that showed up at her house with open arms and an open refrigerator. The most popular item being the famous hot dog chili for which most guests would leave requesting the recipe. Even in the rare times where she had no food prepared to share, she would pull out a box of popsicles on a hot summer day. Most of all though, Sandra will be remembered for her generosity and kindheartedness. She wanted to make sure everyone she loved, knew, or encountered had whatever they needed.
