Sandra was a dedicated and hardworking woman who spent her career as a convenience store manager before retiring. She was known for her exceptional work ethic and commitment to her job, earning the respect and admiration of her colleagues and customers alike.
Outside of her professional life, Sandra had a passion for several hobbies that brought her joy and relaxation. She loved to spend her free time fishing, often taking trips with her family to enjoy the tranquility of nature and the excitement of the catch. Sandra also enjoyed visiting the casinos in Biloxi, MS, where she would try her luck at the slot machines and revel in the lively atmosphere.
Every year at Christmas she would make peanut butter balls for friends and family. What started out as just a small treat for her family grew into a community-wide gift for all who knew her. It became a tradition that was long anticipated during the holiday season.
Sandra was a beloved mother, sister, aunt, and friend to many. Her warm smile, infectious laughter, and caring nature will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.
