Sandra Martin Holloway Obituary

Sandra (Sandy) Martin Holloway was born October 28, 1941 in Hollywood, CA. She passed away on April 12, 2016 in La Paz, BCS, Mexico.

Sandra is survived by her husband of 55 years, Tipton "Tip" Holloway of Live Oak, CA, their three children, Margaret Schies of Yuba County, Colleen Voyles of Reno, NV, and Kurt Holloway of Portland, OR, as well as six grandchildren: Tera Smith of Nipomo, CA, Kelsey Koranda of Live Oak, CA, Tyler Schies of Browns Valley, CA, Jessica, Christen, and Dillon Voyles of Reno, NV, and four great- grandchildren.

After marriage and child bearing, she became a teacher's aide and de-facto kindergarten teacher at Nuestro School for 17 years, then matriculated nights at Yuba College and Chico State where she attained a teaching credential. Although she never got her own classroom, she became the favorite substitute for many primary teachers in both Yuba and Sutter County schools. All this while serving as her husband's auction company cashier and his most loyal fan and supporter.

For the past 13 years, Sandra and Tip spent their winters at their beach house near Mulege, Baja CA where she became a social leader in her ex-pat community.

She touched many, and never met a person who didn't like and respect her. She worked tirelessly for the benefit of others and through her organizational skills and flair for color and decoration, brightened the existence of many in myriad ways.

The family will host a Luau celebration of her life on Saturday, May 21 starting at 2:00 p.m. at the family home in Live Oak, CA. All who knew and loved her are welcome.
