Sandra Cerny Obituary
Mrs. Sandra Billups Cerny, 71, was born on December 23, 1937, in Oklahoma City Oklahoma. She was called home by her heavenly father on Tuesday, March 24, 2009. Sandra was a loving wife, mother and nana. We love and will miss her dearly. Her radiant personality, sense of humor, and attitude of serving others are qualities she exemplified throughout her life. Sandra graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of Oklahoma in 1960. She earned her Master's Degree in Special Education from Central State University. She joined Casady School as a devoted Montessori teacher for 24 years and was an integral part of countless children's lives. One of her many blessings for the community is the Sandra Billups Cerny Award that is given in her name once a year to a member of the Casady School faculty, staff, or administration who is recognized for dedication and excellence by his or her colleagues. One of her passions was being active and giving back to her community. She was a member of but not limited to Meals on Wheels, Junior League, Garden Club, Orchestra League, Race for the Cure, Bosom Buddies, and Book Club. She was a Delta Gamma and continued her friendships throughout her life. She loved gardening and flowers, travelling the world, her dog Kizzy, and the birds in her backyard as well. She was a member of Our Lords Community Church. As a devoted Christian, her love for the lord was steadfast throughout her entire life. Sandra was preceded in death by her husband Samuel J. Cerny and her father Judge William Tyler Billups. She is survived by her loving mother, Hester Day Embry and husband Colonel James Embry daughter, Laura and husband Jim Lester with their sons, Luke and Brennan daughter, Lisa and husband Brian Trail with their daughters, Morgan and Tyler daughter, Alyson Simms son, Spencer Simms son, Barrett Simms and daughter Jennifer Cerney and her daughters Heather Thompson and Barbara Goodrich and her husband Karl. Additionally, she is loved by her sister, Linda Pollack and daughters, Carrie and Tracy and brother William Billups and wife Jane and their three children, Tyler, Lamar, and Melissa and three grandchildren Kevin, Kyle, and Ashley. A special thank you to family friends and mother's caregivers, Karla Dunn, Carol McCain, and Carey Odhiambo. We appreciate all that you have done to make our mother's quality of life so special during this time. Services will be held at Our Lords Community Church, on Sat., March 28, at 2PM, 11400 N. Portland, Oklahoma City. Interment will follow at Memorial Park Cemetery.
