Sandra was born in Winston-Salem, NC on February 11, 1947 to the late Woodrow and Janet Holcomb. She was the oldest of three children.

The last year of her life was one full of many blessings. She witnessed the marriage of her daughter, the birth of her grandson, and met Tommy Baston—a man she loved dearly.

    Not quite what to say except heaven is sweeter since Sandra is there now. What a beautiful person. Jennifer and Liz, you had such a wonderful mother that only wanted what was best for you. I remember so many wonderful Sunday afternoons at your home when she opened up your home for us Singles to fellowship together. Some of my best memories during that time were at your home and when we went on a camping trip together and it rained almost the whole time, but we had a blast. I am so sorry I am not able to make the service at Pinedale on Saturday afternoon. She will definitely be missed. I know she had to be a wonderful grandmother. My prayers and thoughts are with you. God bless you. Sincerely Karen McDonald (Massie)

    I was so sad to hear of your Mom's death. I worked with her at FMC, and have known her for years. I most recently worked with her in the G.I. lab. I always loved working with her. She was a wonderful nurse. Took great care of her patients. She semed to truly love being a nurse. She was so proud of her girls,and you could just see it and hear it in her voice when she talked about you both. My prayers are with you and all your family. Amy Rosinger
