  1. She was always a kind person and almost always had a smile on her face. I did her hair for many years and truly enjoyed her. She will be missed.

    Dear John and family,
    I was so saddened to hear of Sandra’s passing. I have so many fond memories from our childhood.
    She was always so proud of you. Years ago when home for a visit, Mother and I would always try to stop by and see her at the Bakery. It was always so good to have a visit with her. She always had a warm smile and brought happiness to any time spent with her.
    Thoughts and Prayers for all,
    Mary Jane Spencer
