Sandra Akridge was born on December 3, 1955, in Houston, Texas to Jeanette and Clyde Mayfield. She was the 2nd child and only daughter of six children. She graduated from Robert E. Lee High School and lived in Baytown most of her life. She was married to John Akridge and had one daughter, Krystal Akridge Gannon. She was a member of the Church of Christ and was an Eastern Star.

Sandra is survived by her daughter Krystal and husband Daryl Gannon, and Sandra’s granddaughters Sadie and Millie Gannon of The Woodlands, TX.; her mother, Jeanette Hobbs, of Baytown, TX; her brother Cliff and wife Michelle, and Sandra’s niece and nephews Catherine, Christian, and Raymond Mayfield of Wills Point, TX; and her brother Ronnie and nieces Kaleigh and Ireland Mayfield of Mont Belvieu, TX.

Sandra was preceded in death by her father, Clyde Mayfield; her stepfather, Hugh Hobbs; her brothers, Steve Chris & Raymond Mayfield; and her husband, John Akridge.

Sandra will be remembered as a high-energy, strong-willed, and hard-working independent woman. She was always there to help her friends and family.

More than anything else she loved and adored her granddaughters.

My thoughts and prayers and deepest condolences are with the entire family during this time. I know you fought long and hard and now you do not need to suffer any longer. I met you about 16yrs ago and we always got along. I even had you clean my house when you needed extra work, you were always bound and determined to make that extra money. We spent many of times hanging out together and you will truly be missed by many. Fly high Sandy

Gosh! Sandy and I walked the road together for a time. She was a sweet true friend.
When walking through hard times she optimistically shifted gears and strove on. I am so sorry.

Sandra dear friend may you rest peacefully in the presence of our Lord and Savior. Sandra and I met years ago working in the chemical plants. We automatically hit it off and became close friends. I really admired Sandra because she was one of the most honest ladies I've ever met and she wasn't worried about sharing what was on her mind.She helped me many times in times of need and was very selfless about doing things for others. I loved Sandra because she was real and didn't mind sharing her honst opinion. You will be missed my sweet friend.

Keeping your family in my prayers to find comfort and peace in their hearts with your passing.
RIP my friend, you're not in pain anymore. We've had so many good memories that we've shared and some that we would never share with anyone other than each other, we've laughed, cried, yelled, fought, danced, camped, we've done everything together for so many years and I will miss you.

Well Sandra Kay! You and I butted heads many a time. Guess that’s what hard headed Mayfield cousins do. But we always knew we loved each other. I know you are at peace now. Tell my girls, Callie and Jamie and Aunt Raye that I miss them so much and send my love via you. God bless you Sandra Kay. Love you.
