Kesha Chambers Sullivan

Kesha Chambers Sullivan, 58, of Murray, Kentucky, died Monday, Sept. 30, 2019, at Tri-Star Skyline Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee

She was born May 22, 1961, in Louisville, Kentucky, to Hyrum and Margaret Baccus Chambers. 

Kesha was a graduate of Stewart High School and continued her education at Murray State University. She followed her God-given gift and received a bachelor’s degree in learning and behavior disorders and elementary education. She also received her master’s degree in reading and writing. She taught in Franklin, Tennessee, and retired from teaching special education and first-grade at Murray Elementary School in 2018. Mrs. Sullivan, as her students called her, was a bright light in the school system, where she was very involved with her students, co-workers, and even coached middle school cheerleading. She was awarded the blue ribbon award. Teaching was not just a job for Kesha, it was her passion. She diligently worked to always do her best to set her students up for the brightest futures possible and carried each student she taught in her many years in her heart. She enjoyed being a part of their lives after leaving her classroom and was there cheering them on when they were able to accomplish their dreams. 

Kesha married the love of her life, Lynn Sullivan, after meeting in college and they shared 35 amazing years of marriage together. They had two children, Lynley and Hogan, and she was a very present mother that supported her children in any endeavor that was put in her path. She never missed a game they cheered or played in, and was always their biggest cheerleader. She assisted in helping run the family business, Sullivan’s Par 3 Golf Course, in support of her husband who is a PGA professional golfer. She enjoyed being able to raise her children on the golf course and loved when her students where able to come play. 

Kesha enjoyed spending time with her family, friends, her fur-grandchildren, and especially her precious miniature dachshund Heidi. Heidi was added to the Sullivan family when Kesha was first diagnosed with cancer in 2008 and was a loyal companion to her throughout all of her treatments. Heidi took on the same role when her mom was sick again and along with her family, was with mom until she was ultimately healed in heaven. 

She was preceded in death by her father, Hyrum Fount Chambers of Kuttawa. 

Kesha is survived by her mother Margaret Baccus Chambers of Kuttawa; a brother, Barry Chambers and sister-in-law Debbie Chambers of Pikeville; her loving husband, Lynn Sullivan of Murray; a son, Hogan Sullivan of Murray; a daughter, Lynley Sanders and son-in-law Scott Sanders of Cadiz; her mother-in-law and father-in-law, James and Jerelene Sullivan of Murray; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends that became family that she loved very much.
