Gifts & Memorial Donations

Sondra Scott Trantham, 73 of Laurel Park died Friday, December 2, 2016 at Pardee Hospital. She was born in Florence, SC, a daughter of the late Otis Kinloch “O.K.” Scott and Ida Monetta Lawrence Scott. She moved to Hendersonville with her family in 1948. An active member of First Presbyterian Church, she became a charter and active member of Covenant Presbyterian Church.

Sondra was a 36-year breast cancer survivor, the epitome of a true Southern lady – always dutiful, strong, gracious and steadfast. Her love was serving others, whether at home, church, or in the community. Her joy was in her husband, daughters, grandchildren and extended family. Her life was an example to all, of her love for the Lord our God.

She will be dearly missed by her husband of 53 years, Jack Trantham; two daughters Amanda Trantham Morgan and husband, Roy of Banner Elk and Monetta Trantham Collie and husband, Page of Hendersonville; her grandchildren Virginia, Katherine, and Jackson Morgan, and Isaac, Ingram, and Camden Collie; one sister Linda Scott Riddle and husband Sam of Hendersonville; as well as many nieces, nephews and extended family.

A memorial service celebrating Sondra’s life will be held at 1:00pm on Friday, December 9, at Covenant Presbyterian Church. Rev. Steve Mirich will officiate. The family will receive friends from 11:30 until 1:00pm at the church prior to the service. She will be laid to rest in the Lawrence Family Cemetery in Elim, SC at 1:00pm on Saturday, December 10.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations in her memory to Covenant Presbyterian Church, 2101 Kanuga Road, Hendersonville, NC 28739.
