Sandra was born in McArthur, Ohio on Monday, April 11, 1955 to parents Roberta and James Paul Conley. After graduating from Stark High School in Orange, Texas, Sandra met and married the love of her life, Kevin Franks. She was a free spirit, loving life to its fullest. She rejoiced in being a devoted wife and mother. Her grandsons were the “lights of her life”. In the 1980’s, Sandra modeled for “Ladies of the 80’s” relishing every second of it. Sandra had a servant’s heart, thriving and happiest when throwing birthday parties and holiday gatherings to make others feel special; providing meals, making sure everyone had something to eat when they visited her and laughing often. Sandra provided a loving home and offered refuge and comfort to anyone who needed it. Nature was another passion Sandra found comfort in, the lake was her happy place. Sitting beside the water brought her peace. She loved the blooms of all flowers as they attracted the butterflies and hummingbirds, she could watch them for hours. Sandra Franks will be deeply missed and always cherished by her family and all that knew her.
