Sandy Clark Mehlbauer, 74, of Owensboro, passed away January 17, 2023, at home.  Born March 21, 1948, to the late Charles and Mildred Grace Wedding Clark, Sandy was a mother to many and made her home, a comfortable place for all.  Often referred to as “Mother Hen”, she was kindhearted, a good listener, a great cook who never let anyone go hungry.  Sandy Lou was of the Catholic faith and enjoyed spending time with her family, singing and dancing with her husband of fifty-six years, Tony, and spent many years traveling internationally.  Professionally, Sandy worked as a nurse for twenty-two years and spent seventeen of those years at Jewish Hospital in Louisville, and was a part of the first Surgical Hand Team, under the direction of Dr. Kleinert and Dr. Kutz.  She retired in 1991.  Sandy was preceded in death by her son, Tony Mehlbauer.

 

She is survived by her husband, Tony Mehlbauer; daughters, Jessica Washer (John), Lauren Waninger (Nathan); siblings, Janice “Monie” Tipmore, Jim Clark (Sherry), Charles “Cotton” Clark, Susan Hein; grandchildren, Scott Mehlbauer, Dylan Mehlbauer, Trey Mehlbauer, Dariane Payton (Alton), Ethan Smith, Mikayla Waninger, Jackson Waninger, Paris Hohiemer; great-grandchildren, Leo Mehlbauer, Landon Mehlbauer, Mila Mehlbauer, Ellie Grace Payton; dear friend, John Hein; and several nieces, nephews and friends who she loved dearly.
