Sandra I. Henning Murray, age 57, of Wesleyville, passed away peacefully, at home, on Friday, April 25, 2014. She was born in Erie on July 29, 1956, daughter of James Henning of Lawrence Park, and the late Velma "Peggy" Smith Raun.
Sandy was a 1974 graduate of Iroquois High School and attended Erie County Vo-Tech. She was employed for the last 24 years at Lawrence Park Golf Club; she was the owner of Sandtee's restaurant at Downing Golf Course.
A caring and respectful person, she was always quick with a comeback remark. Sandy's smile and youthful love of life made her a favorite of nieces and nephews. She was an avid mystery reader and gardener, and enjoyed golf (which she reminded Gary she beat him once), knitting and most water sports. She especially loved snorkeling with turtles in Mexico. Sandy was a 1st degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and a member of the Sportsmen's Athletic Club. To Sandy's dearest friends, she will always be a part of who they are and forever in each other's hearts.
Besides her father, Sandy is survived by her husband, Gary P. Murray; brothers, Greg (DeeDee) Henning, Brian Henning, Sr., David Henning, Mark (Mary Ann) Henning, Tim (Michelle) Henning; sisters, Kellie (Lamar) Roberts, Nancy (Scott) Pierson, Pam (Jeff) Franklin; two aunts, Marvis (Robert) Neubauer and Nancy (Jack) Hauck; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
In addition to her mother, Sandy was preceded in death by her brother-in-law, Robert Farley; a sister-in-law, Kim Henning; and stepbrother, Jim Raun, Jr.
