I only knew Mrs. Sandra a short time, I met her through her daughter Brenda, who is a dear friend of mine. I am so thankful and happy that I knew her and spoke with her several times. She was a blessing, encouragement, and joy in this chapter of my life of caring for my own mother. I will always remember her as a positive, sweet, faithful, and loving person. Many prayers for this family through this difficult time of losing such a great monarch of your family, wonderful woman. May you be given strength in the days ahead as you remember her strength and love.

Sandra always with great class. She was a true and faithful friend. We could have 2 hour phone calls and never run out of things to talk about. She was a blessing in my life. She will be greatly missed.

Cousin David Lowry and Aunt Rhoda Lowry express our condolences to everyone during this sad time. We have many memories that we cherish of my Aunt Sandra. My mother Rhoda Lowry was always especially grateful for her Sister-in-Law Sandra Lowry’s assistance after the sudden passing of my father Glen Lowry (September 1976).
