Sadie was born September 12, 1944 at Atascadero, CA, the daughter of William Archie and Elsie Dyck McKennon. She attended schools in Paso Robles, CA and college in Kansas. Sadie worked eight years at the Hallmark Card Company and another eight years wearing many hats at the F.W. Huston Medical and Geriatric Centers in Winchester. She worked another 22 years as a medical records coder for Lawrence Memorial Hospital. A master quilter, Sadie, with her daughter Jody owned and operated Aunt Sadie- Quilt Shop in Winchester for 12 years before retiring in 2017.

Sadie loved her flower beds and “digging in the dirt” as well as feeding the many wild birds that visited there. Sadie was also an accomplished landscape painter. She loved traveling with her husband Robert making many memories and simply enjoying life.
