As a native of New Orleans, Sandra was very proud of her Louisiana heritage. She hosted many Mardi Gras parties, and brought some of her hometown to her northern friends. She graduated from Eleanor McMain High School in New Orleans. She then attended H. Sophie Newcomb College of Tulane University, where she was a member of Phi Mu sorority. She was a pre-school teacher in New Orleans and in Newark. Sandra was an amazing homemaker, who enjoyed baking and gardening. She was also an incredible seamstress, especially making children's clothing. She was very active at St. Thomas Episcopal Church and was a member for almost 50 years. She doted constantly on her grandchildren.

Sandra is survived by her children, Lisa, Scott (Larry), Brent, and Tori (Mike); her grandchildren Brittanie, Meghan, Lindsay, Chelsea, Rebecca and Ryan; eight great grandchildren with another on the way; her sister Gayle; and numerous nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, Sandra was preceded in death by her husband, Robert; daughter, Heather; sister, Cynthia; and brother, Austin II.
