Sandra Allen Gober, 69, passed away on Tuesday, February 21, 2012 in Pensacola, FL after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Born in Freeport, Texas, March 18, 1942, to Henry Byrd and Irma Lee Rube, Sandra was a devoted wife, loving mother and a wonderful, gracious friend to all she knew. Our mother was one of the most amazing people we have ever known and will probably ever know. She lived her life caring for others, never putting herself before others and going out of her way to reach those in need. Sandra is survived by her daughters, Kim Allen Davis (Al) and Laura Allen Burgess (Johnny); son, Robert H. Allen (Sherry); sister, Sylvia Powell; grandchildren, Jacqui Davis, Kevin Swann, Parker Rose, Destiny Allen and John Carr Burgess.

Just wanted to say I'm sorry for your loss, I worked with your mom at Norma's Cafe when Kim was merried. Sandra asked me to shuck oysters at Kim wedding reception & I had never in my life shucked an oyster but there was no way I could have ever told your mother NO It was just not an option. So instilled the trust in me to do it and she had a family frieind come & show me how before he headed to the wedding. WOW what fun I had,She was an amazing person & and I will never ever forget her. My pryers are with you all & I promise the days will get better

WOW! the pictures above really bring back great memories of our High School days and the Sandra I thought a lot of and her parents. I worked for Mr. Rube during summers building Jackson Coliseum and apartments in Jackson. I was sadden to hear of Sandra's passing but I know she left a lot of love and memories behind for all that knew her.

To the children of Sandra: I was a childhood friend of Sandra's and her family in Jackson, MS. We grew up down the street from each other, and she was my dear friend, one day older than me. Thank you so much for the photos. Meant to much to me to see her thru the years. She will be in our hearts forever - a very classy, pretty lady - my friend, Sandra.
So very sorry for your loss of your dear mother.
Love, Jo-Ann Cole Gaston, Mobile, AL

Kim, Bob, and Laura, when Linda and I were very young and we lived near Sandra in Shreveport, Louisiana, she and Jo would dress us up in wonderful satin "evening" gowns and play with us as if that was all they had to do. Throughout my life, Sandra was the cousin "leader" - she forged the way for those of us younger. And as Oprah says..."this I know for sure" - she loved you all with all of her heart. As I know you will, remember the happy, joyful times and your sorrow will be much less. Missing her already.

Kim, Bob and Laura, Your mother was the Queen of the Cousins. She was what all the other cousins aspired to be. Nobody ever reached her standard, but she gave us something to work toward.
She was beautiful, popular, smart, funny, and an absolutely delightful person. I am so very sorry for your loss. She will be missed by all.
