Sandra Lee Converse was born on January 21, 1947 in Houston, Texas, to Eloise Canterbury Feuhs and Bennie Feuhs. She was adopted by Paul V. Wilson following marriage to Eloise Canterbury. Sandy was married to Robert Gerald “Jerry” Converse August 24, 1968, in Houston, Texas.

Sandy attended public schools in Houston, Texas, graduating from Lamar High School 1965, where she met Jerry. Following her graduation, she attended Texas Christian University and The University of Texas at Austin, studying interior design.

After following her daughters for several years competing in hunter/jumper equine competitions, she started a new business, The Tack Shop of Austin, Inc. which she owned and operated for almost 25 years. She retired from retail and set about being a grandmother when her health began to fail.

She was confirmed in the Episcopal Church, attending St John The Devine until Jerry transferred to Austin, where they joined the parish of Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd.

Without a doubt one of the nicest people in the horse business. Always kind, helpful and there if you needed her. I met Sandy within a week or so of moving to Austin, TX in 1990. Will miss her dearly. Love to the family. Love Mary Korns

So many great memories of the best times of our lives. Will never forget those horse shows and sitting with Sandy in the tack shop when it was too cold to sit outside for lessons. I lost Harry almost 4 years ago and I know it will be difficult for Jerry. You will be in my prayers.
