Stacy Sanders Obituary

Stacy Sanders, 55, of Danville, IL, passed away on Tuesday, November 21, 2023 at Arcadia Nursing Home.  She was born in Chicago Cook County Hospital to Elenora Howard. 


Stacy was married to Paul A. Sanders for thirty years and four children were born. In her youth, she was a member of the Bethesda Christian Church.


Stacy was a self-driven, articulate woman. She graduated from Crane High School 1986 and completed Cosmetology School in 1988. After she moved to Danville, she received an AssociatesDegree in Administrative Professions. 


In life, Stacy would give her last. She was selfless and would always step up when needed. Beneath a tough exterior there was a loving, sweet lady that never was afraid to speak her mind. Those who knew her can testify that she was never afraid to verbalize some straightening. 


Stacy enjoyed music, reading and writing. The battle, the journey, and the conditions she faced as a black woman was rough, but she took those battles head on. The storm is over now, and a new journey begins.


Stacy leaves behind to cherish her memory mother, Elenora Howard; children, Xavier (Monica) Ingram, Paul A. Sanders Jr., Bianca R. Sanders and Lovonne (Del) Hayes; sisters, Christina (Derrick) Rees, Belinda (Kelvin) Forrest; nephews, Cornelious, Michael, Ramone, Deverone, and Dewon; nieces, Crystal, Kenyhatta, Jeneane, Kathy and Deanna; special grandson, Kai, that had the blessing to know her; seven grandchildren; and, a host of great nieces and nephews.


Stacy was preceded in death by her stepfather, Willie Howard; brothers, Kenneth Ingram and Frederick Howard; and, nephew, Kelvin M. Forrest Jr.
