Sandra Bailey Strickland Obituary
Video Memory
Sandra Bailey Strickland went to be reunited with her one and only loving daughter, Kimberly Strickland Standish; son-in-law, Patrick Standish; grandson, Marcus Standish; parents, Maedelle Lewis Bailey and Thomas Jefferson Bailey; and sister, Betty Bailey Perkins. Sandra passed peacefully at home Monday, June 9, 2014. Service: 10 a.m. Monday, June 16, at Moore Funeral Home, 1219 North Davis Drive, Arlington 76012. Grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the pride and joy of Sandra's life. The legacy of Sandra's kind spirit, passion for baking her signature "Mimi cakes," commitment to family, love of reading, and zest for life will live on through all of them. Sandra's special love and passion for her Leo and her family never swayed. Always a smile on her face and a hopeful remark on her lips. Sandra's indomitable spirit served as the matriarch for her family and friends and encouraged all to persist in the face of many struggles over the years. Sandra may now rest in peace as she is with others who loved her so and were waiting for her. Her loving ways will live on in all of us. Survivors: Sandra is survived by her husband, Leo Strickland, whom she had a committed and magical marriage of 53 years with the kind of love you see only in fairy tales. Those left to cherish her love are grandchildren, Chelsea Standish (Eric Cantu), Christian Standish and Nathan Standish; great- grandchildren, Devin Fagan and Ixchel Cantu; brother-in-law, Jerry Perkins; adored nieces, Charlotte Perkins, Cynthia Stripling, Beverly Elmore (Grady Rosier); great-nieces, Ashley Emmons and Melissa Bohannon, Steve and Glenna and Mason Standish; and a host of others she always made feel like family.
