Bartlett, TN

"Michael Lynn Kyle, 78, of Bartlett died peacefully in his sleep on March 2, 2024. He was born November 24, 1945, to Thelma and Milton Kyle. Mike, a very loving and devoted husband, father, and grandfather is survived by his wife, Gayle; daughter, Michelle; son, Brett; grandchildren David (wife: Sophie), Kyle, Marissa, Julie, and Ellie. Upon graduation from Bartlett High School with the title of Most Attractive, Mike briefly went on to Arkansas State Teachers College to play football and then on to UT: Martin, where he sold his books for beer money and quickly returned back to Memphis. Mike met the love of his life, the woman who would stand by his side through thick and thin honoring the very vows she swore, Gayle Johnson. Mike worked at Armour Meat Packing to support his family, with Gayle’s help, while attending Memphis State University. Upon graduation, Mike spent his career in commercial and residential construction. Mike possessed a very strong sarcastic sense of humor which you may encounter with any of his children or grandchildren. He also had a unique sense of humor, which was likely cultivated from incidents similar to the time his parents moved and did not tell him they did so. Mike could tell a great story, often with a few artistic embellishments. His heart was kind and giving and he passed that on to his family as well. Mike was truly proud of the man his daughter married, David Cantù and the woman his son married, Farrah Young. Family was important to Mike and he was fortunate enough to spend a good amount of time with each grandchild. You will notice each of them were very touched by him and felt his love without condition. He was very loved and will be missed tremendously, but at least he feels no pain. Memorial Services for Michael will be held on Thursday, March 7, 2024 at 2:00pm in the Fireside Chapel at Memorial Park Funeral Home. The family will receive friends for visitation an hour prior to the services starting at 1:00pm."

Bartlett, TN

Sandra Lee Sansone, 79, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend to many passed away on Saturday, February 24, 2024, peacefully, surrounded by her husband of 57 years and her 3 children, in Bartlett, TN. Affectionally known as Mammaw, being a mother and grandmother brought her the most joy. She treasured her family and embraced every moment with them. Her family was her world, and she was their biggest cheerleader. Sandra was born to the late Edward and Louise Smith on August 16, 1944, in Greenville, MS. After moving with her parents and siblings from Greenville to New York and finally settling in Memphis, TN, Sandra was a member of the first graduating class at St. Louis Catholic Elementary School. In 1963, she graduated high school from The Sacred Heart School. She attended Siena College in Memphis. Sandra married Fred Dean Sansone, Sr. in 1967 at St. Louis Catholic Church in Memphis and worked as a Reservations Agent for Delta Airlines for three years as they started their family. She began working for the Internal Revenue Service in Memphis in 1973 and, after 34 years, retired as a Customer Service Manager in 2007. Sandra was a woman led by her unwavering faith. Her belief was a guiding light in her life, shaping her actions and relationships. Sandra and her family became members of St. Ann Catholic Church when they moved to Bartlett in 1973, where she volunteered for the church and school for most of her life. Among so many others, she was a Eucharistic Minister, a member of the Grief & Bereavement Ministry, and the Ministry of the Sick. As her children were in elementary school, you could often find her volunteering as a room parent, Girl Scout troop leader, Cub Scout troop leader, lunchroom volunteer, and a proud member of the church's “homemade ravioli making” group. In her life, Sandra embodied a spirit of selflessness and unwavering compassion. She loved to love on people and was always ready with a kind word, a comforting hug, or a helping hand. Her heart was as big as her smile, and she lived to share both with everyone she met. Sandra had a special place in her heart for animals. She couldn't bear to see any creature suffer, and on numerous occasions (much to her husband's dismay), she would bring home abandoned cats and dogs, giving them a second chance at a happy life. Sandra was an enthusiastic reader who passed on her love of reading to her children and grandchildren. She never missed an opportunity to be a guest reader at her grandchildren’s school and never missed a “Grandparents Day.” Sandra was preceded in death by her parents, Edward Eugene Smith Sr. and Anna Louise Hedgecock Smith, both of Greenville, MS; her brothers, Edward Eugene Smith Jr. of Richmond, VA, and Terrance Michael Smith of Memphis, TN; and her sisters: Margaret Elaine Holoubek of Shreveport, LA and Mary Louise Connor of Memphis, TN. She is survived by her husband, Fred Dean Sansone, Sr. of Bartlett, TN; her daughter Regina Anne Gray (Mike) of Holly Springs, NC; her sons: Fred Dean Sansone, Jr. (Sarah) of Holly Springs, NC, and Christopher Leon Sansone (Beth) of Bartlett TN, and six grandchildren: Abigail Brown, Allison Gray, Tyler Sansone, Ainsley Sansone, Laine Sansone and Margaret Sansone. A memorial service is planned on Monday, March 4th, 2024, at St. Ann Catholic Church, 6529 Stage Road, Bartlett, TN. Visitation will begin at 4:00pm followed by a memorial Mass at 5:00pm. A private inurnment will occur at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the church that meant so much to her - St. Ann Catholic Church in Bartlett, TN (www.stannbartlett.org).
