Georgia Ka Sandra Ruvalcaba, known by all who love her as Sandy, of Kingwood, TX passed away peacefully in her home on March 27, 2020 at the age of 67.

Sandy was born in Fort Worth, TX to Kenneth and Georgia Faubion on March 6, 1953. She was the oldest of eleven children and went on to pursue a 30+ year career in nursing. She had the honor of training many new nurses in her lifetime and her patience, compassion and love for those she served has left a permanent mark on the world for generations to come. She loved her four children fiercely and perhaps her sixteen grandchildren even more. Her heart for her brothers and sisters knew no bounds. She was known as Aunt Sandy to all who met her, even if she wasn't their aunt, and could be counted on to take you in if needed. She knew no strangers and helped all who asked. She would give you the shirt off of her back even if it meant that she did without and was always available for advice giving and shoe lashing if you needed it. She was loved by so many people and her passing has made this world a little more gray and heaven so much brighter.

Sandy is preceded in death by her grandparents, George Washington Wright and Honey Wright, her father, Kenneth Jordan Faubion, mother, Georgia Evelyn Faubion, her brothers Kirk and Randy Faubion, her sisters Naoma and Tammy Faubion, her nephew Rusty Daly, niece Ashley Faubion and numerous aunts and cousins.

Children of deceased sister Naoma Herring and brother in love, James Herring: Kenneth Marshall, Joshua Herring, Jesse Herring

Sandy shared the following in a post before she passed away:

"When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say 'I used everything you gave me.'"

I am certain that Sandy was greeted at the gates of heaven and God told her

"Well done good and faithful servant"

Matthew 25:23

A private memorial will be held for the family at their residence.

When my brother needed a place to weigh himself and his power chair, we went to the hospital and there we met Sandy in 2003. Even though we spent just a short while with her she took the time to help my brother. Even though he could not talk [ALS], she spoke to him and treated him with courtesy and respect. As his sister and caregiver, I want to extend my condolences to the family of this exceptional lady.
