Sandy (McClure) Worden, 68, of Midland, unexpectedly completed her journey in this world on January 21, 2021. She was born in Sterling, Kansas on April 29, 1952 to Audrey and Ferrell McClure. She married her best friend, Richard Worden, on September 9, 1983.
Sandy was born in Kansas, spent her childhood in Oklahoma, and her youth in Michigan. She graduated from Midland High School in 1970 and took classes at Delta College before working in various offices at Dow Corning, where she met her husband. Together they spent several years in Wales, Kentucky, and England. In 1996, they moved back to Midland to be closer to family.
While her daughters were in school, she shared her love for art history as a “Picture Parent,” was an active Room Parent, and supported the MPS Music Program. She volunteered regularly at Pregnancy Resource Center (LifeClinic Community Resources) and participated in Bible Study Fellowship as well as Moms in Touch.
Sandy was a kind and selfless woman who always went out of her way to help
others. She will be dearly missed.
She is survived by her husband Richard (Rick) Worden, daughters Amanda Worden and Heather Worden, mother Audrey Pioch, mother-in-law Patricia Sirrine, sister-in-law Linda (Mark) Steinke, brother-in-law Jeffrey (Jennifer) Worden, step-sister Laura (Dean) Moore, and step-brother David Pioch, as well as several nieces and nephews.
She is predeceased by her children Kirsty Sue Worden and Jason Glen Worden, her father Ferrell McClure, her second father Elton Pioch, her brother Jeff McClure, and her father-in-law William (Bill) Worden.
The family is planning a celebration of life event later this year when conditions are better for family and friends to gather in remembrance. In lieu of flowers, please send a donation in honor of Sandy to a non-profit organization of your choice.
