WICKLIFFE -- Sandra Kay Fronabarger, 74, of Wickliffe, Kentucky, passed away Monday, March 13, 2017, in Arlington, Kentucky, in a fatal auto accident.
She was born December 25, 1942, in rural Chicora, Pennsylvania, to Michael "Mike" and Florence Fair Erdos. After her high school graduation, Sandra took correspondence courses with TWA, and was later employed by TWA in Kansas City. It was there that she met the love of her life, Robert P. "Bob" Fronabarger, originally from Oak Ridge, Missouri. They were married February 3, 1962, in Oak Ridge. Two children were born to their union. They had been married 52 years when Bob passed away September 8, 2014.
Bob's employment with the Department of Agriculture took the family to Sioux City, Iowa, where Sandra worked at a former manufacturing company. Upon purchasing Cairo Grain Inspection Agency in Cairo, Illinois, the family moved to Wickliffe. Sandra still enjoyed working and managing the company.
Sandra was a member of Grace United Methodist Church in La Center, Kentucky, and served in various capacities. She was an avid reader and liked to work in her yard, but above all, she enjoyed spending time with her great-grandbabies.
Loving survivors include two children, Keith (Kelly) Fronabarger of Kevil, Kentucky, and Brandi Fronabarger of Paducah, Kentucky; a granddaughter, Ashton (Matt) Cavanaugh and children, Jessica and Jaxon of Wickliffe; three siblings, Ken (Wilma) Texter, Rich (Diane) Erdos, and Gloria (Jack) Jordan, all of the Butler, Pennsylvania area; and a brother-in-law, Randy Fronabarger (fiancé, Ruth Moneyhun) of Jackson.
In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her parents, and a sister, Joyce Erdos.
Visitation is from 4 to 7 p.m., Wednesday, March 15, 2017, at McCombs Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Jackson.
The funeral service is at 11 a.m., Thursday, March 16, 2017, at the funeral home with the Rev. Jamie Lee officiating.
