Ms. Sarah Speck Eatherly age 85 of Lebanon passed away August 21, 2022, at her home. She was born August 24, 1936, in Wilson County, to the late Knox and Minnie Lee Puryear Speck. She was a graduate of Trousdale County High School. Sarah grew up in the Providence Community, maintaining lifelong friendships. She was a devoted matriarch to her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was an attentive daughter, sister, aunt, and friend to special people too numerous to count. A dedicated Christian, she loved her church, devoting decades of service to Westland United Methodist Church as a faithful member. She valued beautiful music, whether as a choir member, enjoying concerts at the Schermerhorn or just playing her own piano. Sarah was also an avid traveler, both in the US and abroad. Her compassion and generosity with everyone she met will be greatly missed.
She was preceded in death by her son, Page Eatherly; sister, Lotus Graves; and brothers: Glenn, Larry and Doak Speck.
Survivors include three children: Vicki Eatherly, Joan Eatherly, Phillip (JoQuetia) Eatherly; six grandchildren: Lauren Mauer, Jordan Huddleston, Jonathan (Mallory) Huddleston, Justin Huddleston, Elijah (Georgia) Eatherly, Joshua Eatherly; three step-grandchildren: Shawn (Tracey) Ausderau, Jeremy Ausderau, Nick (Shayna) Ausderau; nine great grandchildren: Eve, James and George Mauer, Rhett and Julia Huddleston, Dalton, Sam, Alayna and Katerina Ausderau.
