1940 - 2021

September 8, 1940 - March 29, 2021

Sandra Lou Segrest, "Sandy", passed away on March 29, 2021 in Beverly Hills, CA of a heart condition, at the age of 80 years young.

Sandra is survived by her loving husband Joel Segrest of Bakersfield, CA, her daughters, Julie Davis, Christy Colby and her husband Craig, and her son, Donald Stahl and his wife Christine. Sandra will be missed by her stepdaughter Cheryl Hunter, and her many Grandchildren and Great-Grandchildren.

Sandra was born on September 8, 1940 in Alhambra, CA to Margie Nash. With the addition of her beloved Stepfather, Jack Lively, in 1956, her family was complete. Jack soon became her mentor, her confidante, and her most loyal supporter.

Sandra moved to Bakersfield, CA in 1982 and had a successful career with ARCO Oil and Gas for 10 years. Sandra began her second career in Real Estate in 1992. In Real Estate she found her true passion. She found real estate exciting, challenging, and rewarding. However, what she loved most was the relationships she developed with the people she assisted throughout her 30-year career and the colleagues she dearly loved.

In 1991 Sandra met and married the love of her life, Joel Segrest. Their love story was one made of fairytales. Together they created a wonderful life filled with love, companionship, laughter, and the happiness that grows when two soulmates unite.

Such an amazing soul. Sandy befriended my Mom when we stopped to grab a flier at a home that was for sale. She said she wasn't the owner, but offered to take us inside....before she told us she was the realtor! Sandy's friendship warmed my mom's heart at the end of her life and I couldn't be more grateful. Her friendship flowed over to my husband and I and we were so lucky to have enjoyed her kindness, humor, love and a great Panini with her and Joel. She touched so many and although I'm sad, we consider ourselves fortunate to have received 7 years of her, in our life. Condolences to her immediate family and the many many people in her life.

It was my privilege to have known Sandy for decades as a friend, colleague and honorary family member. She was the epitome of professionalism, grace, kindness and generosity. While the news of her passing brought great sorrow, the memories she leaves are a comfort to all whose lives she touched.

I just heard the news. Sandy was an amazing human being. We were so fortunate to be introduced to Sandy by my mother-in-law when we were planning to sell our house. She made the process go smoothly, and she did such a wonderful job our house sold the day it was listed. After a few months, we decided to start looking at houses even though we didn't think we were ready. She was so fun to "hang out" with and house shop, it was like being with a friend. She found the perfect house for us, and we've been living here for 3 years and I think of her often, and have referred many friends.

My only regret is i wish i'd known Sandy longer. Our paths crossed so recently, and I am so sad I will not get to see her again.

THIS lady... AND I mean "lady" in 1000% of the title... Was my FRIEND & Realtor. There are so few people (practically zero) on the planet I can find ABSOLUTELY ZERO flaws with... This lady met those parameters (and I'm picky)..... I only found out today.. 9 days later... I've met Joel (her husband) briefly once (and I'm praying for him} ... I think to myself... If there is a heaven... And I believe there is.. THIS LADY made it.. OMG... I NOW REGRET not taking the extra side trip in Feb when we revisited CA not going by to give her an extra hug... She gave the best (for a little shorty lol) Love her... The world is a worse place with her gone.... I'm 100% sure Susan agrees 100% She cried & I might have too...(guy stuff) ...
