SANDRA S. GODWIN
Sandra S. (Dickerson) Godwin, 71, of Annandale, Virginia passed away at home February 20, 2013 following a brave battle with cancer. She was born in Wyoming to the late Carrol and Phyllis (Simpson) Dickerson on October 22, 1941, and grew up in Sumner, Nebraska. After high school, she moved to the D.C. area where she met and married her husband of 40 years, Graham J. Godwin, Jr., who preceded her in death on April 3, 2002.
She enjoyed a long career with the Fairfax County (VA) Public School system. She was an ever faithful member of the United Baptist Church, and the First Baptist Church of Annandale which preceded it, for many decades. She enjoyed crafting, quilting, reading the comic strips, and doing the puzzles in the daily newspaper. What she really loved more than anything, however, was spending time with her family and friends.
She is survived by her daughter Michelle of Washington D.C.; and her son Michael, granddaughter Zoe, and grandson Jonas of Lees Summit, MO. She is also survived by her brothers Floyd, of Grand Island, NE; Charles, of Lubbock, TX; and John, of Glendale, AZ; and their families, which include many nieces and nephews.
