March 26, 2022 at 1:11am Emma Lee (Morris) Sanders, 85, embraced a new beginning. She came as a bundle of joy April 15, 1937, in Okmulgee, Oklahoma to parents Thomas and Beatrice Morris. She moved to Kansas City, Missouri at an early age, and graduated from Summit high school. Emma received her cosmetology license from House of Heavilin. She later became a nurse working at hospitals, nursing homes, and for families privately. Emma was always ready to give a helping hand if she could. You knew where to get a meal because she enjoyed making dinners and cooking. Constantly on the go, Emma loved to travel. She also liked sewing and singing. Mother Sanders was an active member at Barker Memorial Cathedral of Praise C.O.G.I.C. Some of her favorite scriptures that she would hold on to, to get her through life’s trials were Psalm 23, 27, and 91.
She was preceded in death by her parents; sisters: Tinnie Mae (Clemons) Brown, Leona (Clemons) Murray, and Juanita Morris; brother Issac Clemons; daughter Jannie L (Graham) Thomas, and great grandson Malachi Murray.
