In Loving Memory of
Sandra L. Rowley Woodward
Sandra L. Rowley Woodward finished the adventure of life Friday, September 23, 2016 at 5:20 p.m. surrounded by her proud family in Aiken.
Although it was a sprint through the Pearly Gates she is now enjoying heavenly peace and happiness with those who raced before her.
Having built and immense sense of humor, service and patience though many years as a submarine wife, her large family and group of friends will always remember her as an example of grace and humility. Likely never having had a fully hot meal for herself, she dearly loved her family, kids, grandkids and cooking for anyone who piled into the kitchen. Perhaps the food was a lure to just have them near so she could constantly love and serve them. She was crafty.
Her true happiness was doing things for others, whether she knew them for 10 years or 10 minutes.
Although she often fought with the British lady in the GPS system and the clunky washing machine, she never met someone who wasn't an instant friend. It is also certain that, even as this obit is written, she is saying, "Get off that darn computer!"
Now though, her legendary Mac and cheese is being served, as it is truly fit for a heavenly meal. But her real passion was her belief in wings, especially those of Angels. She certainly had many.
Perhaps they were short staffed, were hungry, or just needed some proper training, because the Lord called her into eternal service. However, we can all rest easier knowing that she is flying above us, spreading joy and laughter where it's needed most.
Before she took flight, she raised many more to properly carry on her legacy. Whether they were blood or by marriage, the love was equally abundant.
Wrapped in her joyous example, going forward include her loving and dedicated husband of nearly 45 years, Grover C. "Woody" Woodward, III - the rock of her life.
Together they sheperded an admiring family of Children, Jason Woodward (Kim), Westerville, OH, Brandon Woodward - Martinez, GA, Deborah Cox (Jacob) - Irmo, SC, Thomas Schweitzer, deceased, Michael Woodward - Greer, SC, Brothers, Jay Rowley - Aiken, SC, Marc Rowley - Hanover, CT, Robin Rowley - deceased, two grandchildren, one great grandchild.
Although flowers are heartwarming, she currently has the house (more than) fully stocked.
Her greatest wish was success and comfort for others, especially her family. Her focus on education and hard work can be honored with donations to the United States Submarine Veterans Inc. National Scholarship Program, G.C. Woodward III Memorial Scholarship Fund in honor of Sandra L. Woodward. Mailed to:
