OBITUARY

Revauda S. Lurey

September 11, 1948August 4, 2019

Revauda “Sandy” Lurey, 70, died peacefully at home on Sunday, August 4, 2019 after a courageous battle with C.O.P.D. Ms. Lurey was born in Horry County, S.C. on September 11, 1948 to Sherman and Grace Saunders. Revauda, affectionately referred to as Sandy, attended UNC-G on an academic scholarship and graduated with a BSN in nursing with honors in 1970. She was awarded a scholarship to attend the University of N.C. at Chapel Hill and received her master’s degree, graduating as one of the first women from that university with a specialty in obstetrics/gynecology in 1974. She taught obstetrics and women’s health care at UNC-G until the late 70’s. She also worked as a nurse specialist in a private medical office, an OB delivery nurse at Cone Health Care and an instructor for nursing students at GTCC. In 1988, she left the nursing field to join her husband, Dr. Edward Lurey, in his private psychological practice, Lurey Psychological Associates. For the next 30 years, her compassion, exceptionally soft voice and passionate desire to help others made a difference in many people’s lives. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Colin. She is survived by her husband, Edward of Greensboro; daughter, Diana Lurey and husband, Dan Fauver of Woodstock, Virginia; son, Brian Lurey and wife, Tracy of Greensboro; grandchildren, Thomas and Elijah and her adored sister, Wanda Hancock of Arlington, Texas. She also leaves behind many beloved nieces, nephews, and their children. Her spirit, humor and smile will be missed by many. Graveside services will be held Guilford Memorial Park, 6000 W. Gate City Blvd., Greensboro on Thursday, 11:00 a.m. The family will receive friends prior to the service at Hanes Lineberry Sedgefield Chapel from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m. Memorials may be made in her memory to Hospice and Palliative Care of Greensboro, 2500 Summit Ave., Greensboro, NC 27405 or to the charity of one’s choice.

Eddie: So sorry to see Sandy’s obituary. Although I didn’t know her, she was obviously a bright, delightful and remarkable woman. My blessings go out to you as you adjust to her absence. We are at our summer place in the mountains and will be unable to make the visitation/service. Bob Sevier

My dear friend Sandy, I have known you for over30 years and, I have become such a better person because of you. I will always treasure our chats, how you talked me off the edge so many times and, all the help with Jacob. Life is strange, I would not of met you, had I not been a patient of Dr. Lurey. I am going to miss you so so much but, I know we will meet again. Tell my dad I miss him and, have me a cup of coffee ready for when I do see you once more.

Sandy was fresh,exciting,unassuming and definitely her own woman. I considered her one of my more brilliant classmates at UNCG SON. I always admired her immensely and even though I would tell her she was very special,she always brushed it off. So humble with her many talents and gifts she gave freely to all. She will be so missed in our world. Prayers for healing to Ed and family.
