Sandra “Sandy” Sue Maples Rambo, age 71, of Knoxville, Tennessee, passed away on June 8, 2018. Sandy battled kidney disease requiring dialysis 3 days a week for the past 6 years, vascular disease that took part of both her feet, and dementia over the past year. After suffering greatly over the last 8 months, Sandy is now walking with Jesus, and the love ones gone before her. She was born in Maryville, Tennessee, graduated from Everett High School, and attended Hiwassee College. She retired from UTK as an Administrative Assistant in the Engineering Department. She was a faithful member of Cedar Lane United Methodist Church. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend to all she knew. Sandy was known for her smart wit, and to be mischievous at times! She will be missed by all who knew her. Sandy was a follower of Christ, serving in her church and enjoyed singing in the choir. Thank you to those that cared for her medical needs at the hospital, dialysis, and home care. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Cedar Lane United Methodist Church, 714 Cedar Lane, Knoxville, Tennessee 37912.
