Sandra was born December 5, 1957 in Riverhead, New York and died at home in Weymouth, Mass. on February 17, 2009 from complications resulting from an auto accident. Sandra grew up in Bastrop and graduated high school at Prairie View Academy in Bastrop. She went on to live in Monroe for several years before moving to Massachusetts to make her permanent home.
