Sandra Roshell Petties was born on August 11, 1963, and entered the gates of Heaven on June 26, 2023. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend to many. Sandra was a graduate of 1982, which was the first class of Springfield High School on Hwy 76. She attended two years of business school for accounting, sales, and retail. Sandra had a career for over 23 years as the Manager of McDonald's, where she dedicated herself to providing excellent service and ensuring the happiness of both her employees and customers. She spent several years working at Fleetline, Hail & Cotton, and Electrolux.
Sandra's love and ability to raise and keep her three boys in line while they were growing up was truly remarkable. She poured her heart into being a loving and supportive mother who always put her family first. Her memories will forever be cherished by those who were fortunate enough to witness her unconditional love.
