Sidney Kaye Ferguson, 61, born Nov. 19, 1959, in Princeton, went to be with her Lord March 31, 2021, at The Lakes of Paducah after a short illness with Pancreatic Cancer.
With the exception of independent living during the winter months, Sidney has lived in Princeton all of her life and was known and loved throughout her community. She was a huge UK basketball fan, preferring her Wildcat Blue colors. She was proud of the work that she did at the Caldwell Medical Center, her “job” each Monday.
Sidney loved traveling, church trips, boating, and adventures. She was always active and social with friends, family, and her church. Everyone who knew Sidney couldn’t help but love her.
Sidney enjoyed Facebook, and sharing her photos as well as staying in touch with friends and family. Sidney loved animals, and they loved her. Wherever Sidney traveled and visited, animals were drawn to her.
Sidney is preceded in death by her father, Tom Ferguson, and mother, Anne Irwin Ferguson.
Sidney is survived by her brother, Wayne Ferguson, Ellicott City, Maryland; her uncle, aunt, and guardians, Terry and Bettie Irwin, Port Charlotte, Florida; their daughters, Amy Alday, Orlando, Florida, and Emily Grimm, Hudson, Ohio; aunt, Joyce Rogers, Princeton; “favorite cousins” sisters, Mary and Nancy Phelps of Florida, numerous Kentucky relatives, neighbors, and church friends. Sidney is also survived by her beloved cat, “Sarah Elizabeth,” who has captured the hearts of Sidney’s newest family at The Lakes of Paducah and has found a loving home.
A very special and deep friendship with Brenda Cotton, who was Sidney’s caregiver, and more.
