Sandra J. Pittman Obituary
Sandra Jane Pittman

Age 74, died suddenly at her home in Harbor City, Calif. on Feb. 26, 2016.
She was born Sandra Jane Wilson on July 31, 1941 in Evansville, Ind., to John and Dorothea Wilson of Boonville, Ind. The Wilson family moved to Santa Monica, California, in 1955.
Sandra attended Lincoln (then) Junior High School and Santa Monica High School, from which she graduated in 1959. She attended Santa Monica College and transferred to UCLA in her junior year where she majored in elementary education.
Sandra taught for 36 years in the Los Angeles Unified School District: South Shores School in Palos Verdes, Barton Hill School in San Pedro and Broadacres Elementary School in Carson. She retired in 2001. In all but the first few years at South Shores she taught kindergarten, which she loved. It was definitely her calling in life.
Sandra loved the ocean and she and her husband, Donald, enjoyed taking cruises after she retired in 2001.
Sandra is survived by her husband, Donald Pittman, and their sons, John of San Pedro, Calif. and Patrick, of Harbor City, Calif.; a granddaughter, Candace Pittman, of Studio City, Calif.; and a sister, Natalie Wilson Crawford, of Malibu. Per her wishes, Sandra's ashes will be scattered at sea on Saturday, March 26, 2016, at 10:00 AM off of 22nd Street Landing in San Pedro, Calif.
