Sandra "Lee" Gilley

March 28, 1942 — April 6, 2018

Mrs. Sandra “Lee” Gilley, 76, of Woodbury passed away on April 6, 2018 after an extended illness. She was born on March 28, 1942 in Massachusetts. She was preceded in death by her parents and husband, Sam Gilley.
She is survived by close friends, George (Maribell) Bragg, III of Old Hickory, Tammy (Charlie) Jones and their daughters, Morgan & Jordan Jones of Woodbury, Wade Davenport of Woodbury and other friends.
Mrs. Lee was a retired Registered Nurse with Alvin York VA Medical Center in Murfreesboro. When she retired she had nearly 30 years of service taking care of veterans. She was known to be a top nurse while at the VA and coworkers commented, “she ran a tight ship.” She and her husband had a farm where they raised goats, at one time they had a herd of over 600. Mrs. Lee loved her goats, dogs, and animals in general. People who knew her, knew she was a plain spoken, no nonsense person, but she could cut loose and have a good laugh too. Her health deteriorated in the past few years and friends stepped in to help her, like she had helped so many other people over the years.
Visitation will be held at Smith Funeral Home on Tuesday, April 10, 2018 from 4:30-6:30 pm. A graveside service will be held at Riverside Cemetery on Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at 1 pm. Bobby Nichols will officiate. In lieu of flowers donations are requested to Cannon County S.A.V.E. Contact Smith Funeral Home for details.
