In Loving

Sandra Jackson Smith

Dec 21, 1949 – Sept 14, 2023

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Sandra Jackson Smith, who departed from this world on September 14, 2023. Sandra’s loss leaves an indescribable void in our lives, but her memory will forever be etched in our hearts.

Born on December 21, 1949, Sandra was determined to take on the world in her way and on her terms. Sandra had an unwavering desire to stand up for the things that mattered most to her, family, church, and respect for our country. In these things she was a constant source of strength and inspiration.

Throughout her life, Sandra was a devoted family member. She cherished the role of wife, mother, grandparent, sister, cousin, and friend.

In her free time, Sandra enjoyed spending time with family, living at the beach, going out on boat trips with her friends, eating out, and touring the country in her RV.  She also enjoyed her church callings. Sandra had an insatiable desire and a thirst for seeking out the next new adventure, always wanting to expand horizons and experience something new.

Sandra’s departure leaves an immense void in our lives, but we find solace in the memories we shared and the impact they had on us all. Her legacy will live on through her husband, 3 children, and 7 grandchildren. We will forever hold her close in our hearts, cherishing the moments we had together.

A celebration of Sandra’s life will be held on October 28, 2023 at 11 am.  The service will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints located at 14573 Scotchtown Rd Montpelier Va 23192.

We extend our deepest gratitude to all those who have offered their condolences and support during this difficult time. Your love and kindness have provided us with strength and comfort. May Sandra’s soul rest in eternal peace, knowing she was deeply loved and will be profoundly missed.

    Sandy fought cancer hard. She defeated several life expectancy challenges. Sandy was a dear friend that loved her family, friends, God and country. I will miss our long conversations on today’s events. Now she can see it from the best prospective. No more pain and suffering. I wonder if they play 5 crowns in Heaven ?. She has made the ultimate destination of her travels. Praying for Bill and her family that she loved dearly.

    Bill and Family,

    We will miss Sandy so much. I have so many nice memories of her in Sandbridge and I’m glad we got to see her down here in FL! I bet Chet greeted her with open arms up there <3

    Sandy was a very special person to us. From the moment I met her, I had a very special bond with her. Sandy was a true Southern lady who enjoyed life and adventures. We have an old boat that we would take Sandy and Bill out on. The boat would break down half the time we were out there… Sandy would always say “ always an adventure!!” and laugh!! We had so many fun times in the 20+ years we new her. We love you Sandy. We really miss you! ❤️

    So sorry for your loss, Billy. Poor Sandy suffered for years. I sincerely hope that you can establish a new normal and continue with your adventures. I’m sure that’s what Sandy would want you to do. Take care and we hope to see you in Florida.

    We are so saddened for Sandra’s passing & your loss. She was an amazing woman. She took us on adventures we would not have done on our own. One of our visits to Busch Gardens she insisted we must sit in the front seat of the roller coaster. What a thrill with her & Bill. Then all of our Florida encounters. Including our reconnecting in Three Flags in Florida after 40 years. That story is priceless to Charlie & me. She never gave up during her illnesses. She will definitely be missed. RIP

    I was heartbroken to hear about Sandy’s passing. I’m flooded with so many Wonderful memories that will live on in my heart. We met Sandy and Bill in the late 1990s at Outdoor Resorts in Sandbridge, VA. We all quickly became dear friends and family and made so many Wonderful memories. We vacationed together in Florida, Tybee Island, and Smith Mountain Lake in a Houseboat.
    We also have so many Wonderful memories with our “Sandbridge family”. Sandy taught me to Live Life to the Fullest! “Always an Adventure”!! She touched so many people and will truly be missed. Rest in Peace, Sandy. We Love you❤️
    ….Sending thoughts and prayers to Bill and the family.
