Mary Sandlin

January 17, 1943 — April 2, 2023

Mary Kate Sandlin, age 80 of Clearwater, Florida, passed away on April 2, 2023.

Mary was born on January 17, 1943. Mary started her life in the small town of Haleyville. She was adopted by Carrie and Dewey Eady, who loved her like their own child. She grew up with two cousins and best friends, Sheila Eady- Boone and Jerry Lucas. At the age of 16 she married Norman Schick and started a family.

She later went on to become a crossing guard and school lunch aid at the schools her children were attending. In the early 1980’s she started working for Amerisure Insurance. In 2002 she moved to Clearwater, Florida and became a Home Health Aid working for Home Instead. After retirement she continued to help her elderly friends driving them to stores, doctors, and other places they needed to go.

Mary was a strong donator for Saint Jude and gave yearly as well as extra money that she would send. She always believed that children should not be hindered with disease or other illnesses but since these problems happened, she was more than willing to give her time and money to those in need.

Mary was known by many, remembered by more, and loved by all.

A graveside memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 6, 2023 at 1:00pm at Littleville Cemetery in Haleyville.

Mary is survived by her daughters, Katherine Krawczyk and Norma Looney; and sons, Chris Schick and Steven Schick.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Carrie Wakefield; father, Dewey Eady; sister, Vernell Rompasky; and brother, J.R. Eady.
