Chelia Sanderford

Chelia Rand Mixon Sanderford succumbed peacefully to the onslaught of a neurological disorder by the name of Lewi Body Dementia (LBD) at 8:48 A.M. on May 8, 2024, at her home surrounded by family and friends. LMD, in recent years, has gotten the attention it long deserved and is similar in some ways to other neurological disorders like Alzheimer's, Parkinsons, and others.

Chelia was born October 4, 1944, in Alexandria, Louisiana. She married David Sanderford on January 28, 1966, and at the time of her death they had been married 58 years. Chelia was a retired public school teacher and helped finance David's legal career. They had lived in several places including California, Washington, and Connecticut, prior to retiring in Granbury, Texas 21 years ago.

Chelia is survived by her husband, David; her brother, Mike Mixon and his wife, Judi; nephews, Cody and Andrew Mixon; and niece, Mary Kathryn Prestridge and husband, Trip, and two nieces, Maddie Claire Prestridge and Allie Mae Prestridge.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Andrew and Claudia Ruth Mixon, who were long time residents of Alexandria, Louisiana. David and Chelia also had a son, Stephen Monroe Sanderford, who preceded her in death.

Memorial services celebrating her life will be held at 2 p.m. Monday, June 3, 2024, at The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd, 4530 Acton Highway in Granbury officiated by The Reverend Dr. Bonnie McCrickard, Rector.
