Born November 15, 1944 in Tacoma, Washington, she is the daughter of Maxine Barlow Porter and the late Edmond Porter.
While in Charleston, Sandra met a Navy man named John. They dated and later were married in Charleston. Due to John’s career in the nuclear field, she had quite the life of experiencing new places every few years. She loved moving to new places. They started out in Charleston, SC and from there had a wonderful life together in Greensburg, PA, Knoxville, TN, Augusta, GA, Las Vegas NV and enjoyed their last 10 years together in Aiken, SC. Sandra was a frequent volunteer at Doctor’s Hospital in Augusta. Her favorite task was to deliver flowers and gifts to the many patients there. She just loved meeting new people and never really met a stranger!
She enjoyed birds and loved planting and gardening. But most of all she loved her family; family was most important and special to her. They were the driving force in her life.
She was preceded in death by her father.
