Donna Sue Sanders, age 80, of Hayes, Virginia, sadly left us on 26 January 2023 following a brief battle with cancer. She is now in heaven with her mother, Beatrice Chattin, and father, Raymond Chattin, as well as her sister, Barbara Boyd, and husbands, Kenneth Richardson and Jerry Sanders. She is survived by her daughter, Julia Yarbrough; two brothers, Norman Chattin of Virginia Beach, Virginia, and John Chattin of Shoals, Indiana; aunt, Ruth Young of Leland, N.C.; grandchildren, Chantel Cruz, Christopher Carroll and Sydney Yarbrough; great- grandchildren, Isabella Cruz and Gianna Cruz; nieces, Kathy Collins, Becky Taylor, and nephews, Kurtis Richardson, Kirby Richardson, Brian Boyd, Kevin Boyd, Wesley Boyd, Timothy Chattin, Randall Chattin and Corey Chattin. Among her many friends and Gloucester Church of Christ family as well as closest friends like Opal Countiss, Lenny Jenkins and Julia Cox, we will all mourn her kind and gentle spirit. I cannot be sad because she is now with departed family members and is under the watchful eyes of God.

A memorial service will be held in her honor at 10 a.m. on 11 February 2023 at Gloucester Church of Christ, Hayes, Virginia.
