Sandra L. Parker

January 3, 1949 — October 7, 2023

Vassar

Our wonderful mother, Sandra “Sandy” Lee Parker peacefully passed away on Saturday, October 7, 2023, surrounded by her five daughters and sons-in-law.

Sandy was born in Meadville, Pennsylvania, on January 3, 1949. On August 23, 1968, Sandra wed Frank "Jay" Parker and together they had five daughters, shared countless memories, and celebrated 47 years of marriage before Jay's passing in 2016. Sandra was devout in her faith and very involved in her church, Vassar Victory Center, and was a spiritual mentor to many. She cherished being a wife, and being the best mom to her daughters and grandmother to her grandchildren. Further, Sandy valued having a nice, cozy, and welcoming home for all who visited.

She leaves to cherish in her memory her daughters: Lacy (Eric) Gawne, Lisa (Lance) Heinlein, Lana (Patrick) Garvin, Lindsey (Lenny) Corliss, and Leah Parker; eight grandchildren: Nicholas, Natalya, Sam, Lily, Leo, Garrett, Taylor, and Brayden; sister, Elizabeth Lloyd; as well as extended family and several close friends. 

Sandra is preceded in death by her husband, Jay; parents, William & Peggy (Merriman) Williams; and son-in-law, Brad Rittenberg.
