Sandra was born on April 7, 1942 in Scotland County and was a daughter of the late C. E. “Jack” and Eva Taylor Rice. She was a 1960 graduate of Laurinburg High School and received a degree from Southeastern Cosmetology in Charlotte. For many years she was the assistant manager of the Laurinburg Surgical Clinic and retired from the Scotland County School System.
She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. Sandra loved cooking and entertaining, as she was a “ball of fire,” and made everyone smile when she was around. A charter member of Saint Luke United Methodist Church, she served as vice-president of the Susan Lockey Seekers Circle, the Communion Steward, and was a member of the Tuesday Crafting Ladies.
