Sandra "Sandy" Lea Steil (nee Lucas) passed away peacefully Thursday, March 27, 2014 at Ocean Springs Hospital in Ocean Springs, MS at the age of 70.
Sandy was born September 9, 1943 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After being raised and graduating high school in Boulder, Colorado Sandy returned to Milwaukee where she married Robert Steil in 1962. Robert and Sandy made Milwaukee their home and had three children, Jim, Karen, and Vicki before Robert's career moved them to Texas. While living in Texas, their fourth child, Elizabeth "Liz" was born. From Texas, Robert's career moved the family to Alabama and in 1979 to Brandon, Mississippi. After a 1991 move to Atlanta GA, Robert passed away in 1992, and afterwards, Sandy moved back to Brandon. Sandy really enjoyed the Mississippi Gulf Coast and made several friends there. In 2003 she sold her home in Brandon and moved to Biloxi which she had intended to be her final home. When Hurricane Katrina destroyed the Gulf Coast along with all the atmosphere and enjoyment that had lured Sandy there, she spent a few months in Memphis before moving back to Brandon to be closer to her children.
Sandy was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.
Survivors include children, Jim Steil and wife Kim of Brandon, Karen McCrary and husband Windale of Brandon and Liz Steil of Brandon; grandchildren, Olivia Steil, Caroline Steil, Kasi Timmerman, Adam McCrary, Bradlee McCrary, Derrick Martin and Hunter Meadows; and her son-in-law Steve Meadows. She is preceded in death by her husband, Robert Lee Steil and a daughter, Vicki Steil Meadows.
