Sandra ( who preferred to be called Sandie) Kay Martin grew her angel wings and is no longer in pain. She joined family in Heaven on January 29, 2023 with her family at her side. Sandie fought a 6 year battle with metastatic cholangiocarcinoma. It would be wrong to say that she lost her battle because she never stopped fighting. No matter how sick she was, she was always determined to move onto the next treatment. When anyone else would have been broken, Sandie stayed strong and never gave up hope. Through her, we know what resilience and perseverance truly look like. There was no quitting. Just because she is no longer here, it doesn’t mean she lost her fight. She fought all the way until the end.
Sandie loved her family, spoiling her grandkids, and Winnie the Pooh. She was always ready to joke around, had a smile on her face and sometimes even cause some mischief. Especially with her Best friend Sandy Walker.
