Sandra was a strong, wonderful, and God fearing woman. It was a blessing to have known and been closed to her for several years. She was especially something else during the holidays when she was surrounded by family. When her husband passed she showed us what a true Southern woman looked liked. May peace be found by all those who loved her and may she be forever smiling.

Sandra was a blessing to all who crossed her path.. Patients, visitors, co-workers, other nurses and many others who worked at DCH.. She was an encourager with a beautiful smile and heart.

I was blessed to have Sandra as my head nurse when I graduated from nursing school in 1976. I learned alot from her and she was always there for her nurses. I remember how crisp her uniform was and she always looked so professional with her nursing hat on. Everyone loved her. Praying for all the family.
