Sarah (Moran) Halcomb Obituary

Mrs. Sarah Jeanette (Moran) Halcomb, age 71, of Albany, Kentucky, passed away Wednesday, September 20, 2023, surrounded by her family, at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee.

She was predeceased by her parents, Marvin and Pickens Moran; brother, Bill Moran; in-laws Floyd and Lucille Halcomb; brother-in-law Bruno DePalma; and nephew Jeff Cosgrove.

She is survived by her husband of 52 years, Robin Halcomb of Albany, Kentucky; children, Jennifer (Chris) LeBeau of Marietta, Georgia, John (Kristy) Halcomb of Berea, Kentucky; sister, Carolyn DePalma of St. Augustine, Florida; sisters-in-law, Mary Moran of Banner Elk, North Carolina and Jill (Jeff) Smith of Somerset, Kentucky; grandchildren, Cosette LeBeau and Lorelai Halcomb; nieces, Sarah Cosgrove and Alice Moran; and a host of other family and fur babies.

A devoted Christian, Sarah taught GAs and VBS classes at Albany First Baptist Church, served on the board of Cumberland Habitat for Humanity in Burkesville, Kentucky, and was Pack Leader for Boy Scouts of America, Pack 160, in Albany, Kentucky.

After raising her children, Sarah returned to Western Kentucky University and graduated Summa Cum Laude in the year 2000 at age 49. While at WKU, she received numerous academic awards and scholarships, including the Calvin Isbell and Rosella Isbell Scholarship.

She enjoyed travelling with family and her favorite places were Colonial Williamsburg, Ireland, and Monument Valley. Family and friends looked forward to her wonderful cooking and she was known for the specialty cakes she loved making for her family, chili, 14-day pickles, and Asian-inspired dishes, especially her skillet dinner.
