Sandra Louise Cook

Sandra L. Cook passed away on April 6, 2019 at the age of 73. She is survived by her daughter, Alexandra Poole, son in law Michael Poole, the light of her life Ryan Poole (grandson) as well as sisters Diana Elliot and Jill Anderson, brother in law Eldon Elliot, niece Anna Wilson and her family. 


Sandy became a Pan Am flight attendant in 1973 and travelled the world. She loved sharing her collection of stories and experiences from all of the countries she visited and truly got to live out her dreams while flying. 


Sandy was loved by all. She had a way of making any situation bright and would almost always bring the house down with laughter. Known to her family as one of the original “Wackettes”, she fit the bill. It was never a dull moment when she was involved and her contagious laughter was infamous. 


Sandy will be remembered as a perfectly imperfect, kindhearted, fun, roaring good time of a person who cared for everyone around her. She was a beautiful soul who left this world too soon and we all miss her deeply. 


Her celebration of life will be held this Saturday, April 13th at Cure of Ars Catholic Church at 1pm with a memorial dinner following at the home of Judi Moritz, 805 W 133rd Court, Kansas City, Missouri 64145 at 2:30pm.
