Feeks
Sandra Flood Feeks, 85 yrs., died early Monday afternoon, August 16, 2021. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband of 58 years, Capt. Edmond M. Feeks, USN; infant son Robert; and sister Suzanne Flood. She is survived by 6 children, Dr. Edmond F. (Mary) Feeks, USN; Michael J. (Bridget) Feeks, Lawrence G. Feeks, Mary F. (Eric) Davis, Elizabeth F. (Steve) Koller, and LtCol William A. (Laura) Feeks, USMC; 26 grandchildren; 21 great grandchildren; sister, Jacqueline Pilver (Maury); and a host of beloved nieces and nephews.
Sandy took great pride in her family heritage. She was born Nov. 29, 1935 in Pensacola, FL, to Jack R. Flood and Olympia S. Flood. She was the granddaughter of Estelle Moreno Sublette, the youngest child of Don Francisco Moreno, Pensacola's first banker, former mayor, and governor under the Spanish flag. She was the great-great granddaughter of Don Manuel Gonzalez, at whose ranch in Cantonment was held the very first session of the Florida Legislature in accommodation of the yellow fever epidemic of 1822. She was the great niece of Angela Moreno Mallory, wife of Stephen Russell Mallory, Secretary of the Navy, and U.S. Senator from Florida. Her grandfather's family were French Huguenots, who fought in and helped finance the American Revolution, and who explored the West as founders of the Rocky Mountain Fur Company.
Sandy attended Hendricks Avenue School and Landon High School, where she served as vice president of the Spanish Club, therein winning numerous competitions. She marched several years with the Landon Lionettes, sang in the chorus, acted in the Landon Players, and held memberships in the SGC, the JGC, the Sports Club, and the Y-Teens. She loved summertime camping, serving as a counselor at Camp Keystone in NC. After high school she completed Georgetown Visitation College in Washington, DC., and worked for a short time for both Prudential and The Jacksonville Journal before marrying Ed Feeks, her dashing Navy pilot, whom she met at the San Jose Catholic Club in 1957. Together they gave life and unconditional love to seven children, generously, selflessly, through every joy and sorrow. Her passing leaves a monumental void.
She was a twenty-five-year member of San Jose Country Club and a proud member of the Georgetown Visitation Alumnae Association. A lifelong Catholic, she was a parishioner at St. Joseph and Assumption Catholic Churches for over forty-five years. Sandy's faith was enormous; her love for truth, beauty, and goodness unmatched. She gave generously to those in need. She was never superficial, always jovial, and lived a life deeply immersed in literature and philosophy. She was holy and humorous, wrote poetry and prose, recited flawlessly the works of great authors, and relished her Sunday Comics.
Visitation is on Sunday, Aug. 29 from 5-7pm in the Legacy Lodge at Oaklawn (Hardage-Giddens). A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 12 noon on Mon., Aug. 30, at Assumption Catholic Church, 2403 Atlantic Blvd, Jacksonville, with Father Jason Trull presiding. Interment follows at 2pm, Jacksonville National Cemetery. Please visit www.hardagegiddensoaklawnchapel.com to leave words of comfort for the family.
