Obituary for Sandra L. Reed Woodard
Sandra L. Reed Woodard, 80, of Vista Drive in Erie, went to be with our Lord and Savior on Wednesday, May 20, 2020 at Elmwood Gardens Nursing Home.
Sandy was born in Union City, Pa., on Nov. 15, 1939, the daughter of George Beardsley and Joan McLean Beardsley Ten Haken.
Sandy was raised in Corry, Pa. Following her graduation from Corry Area High School in 1957, Sandy married and moved to Sherman, N.Y. There she was the office manager at Norvel Reed and Sons, Inc., which was the family cattle business.
After retirement, Sandy dove into her church family at Erie First Assembly in Erie, where she was very active in choir, multiple plays and assemblies, bible studies and small groups.
Her church family was an influential group that she always treasured.
She was also a member of Theta Beta Sigma Sorority and the Red Hat Society.
Sandy loved to travel, especially to any where there was a beach or a family member. Her family was the most important part of her life, especially her grandkids, as she was lovingly known as Nana.
Sandy was proceeded in death by her parents; her past in-laws Norvel and Eunice Reed; a sister, Rebecca (Becky) Gibson and a niece, Joan (Joanie) Thomas.
She is survived by her beloved husband of 20 years, James Woodard, children Ronnie Reed Jr. (Beth) of Sherman, N.Y., Jane Babcock (Jon) of Clymer, N.Y., Ann Denny (Steve) of North East, Pa., Ryan Reed (Marlene) of Newport Coast, Calif; step-children, Terry Baker (Randy) of Katy, Texas and Ryan Woodard (Kathy) of Abliene, Kan.; two sisters, Diane Winkle (Joe) and Patricia Munn (Jim); grandchildren, Joshua Babcock (Kirsten), Sarah Babcock, Michael Reed (Kaylyn), Ellen Reed, Heath Reed, Stephen Denny, Maria Denny, Gavin Reed and Sophia Reed; step-grandchildren Douglas Baker (Tina), Donovan Baker (Jenice), Danielle Rodriguez (Anthony), Cassidy Meins (Cody), Alex Woodard and seven great-grandchildren.
The family would like to thank the staff at Elmwood Gardens for their loving care of our wife, mom and nana.
Due to COVID-19, a celebration of life and burial will be held at a later date. Burial will be at Pine Grove Cemetery in Corry, Pa. The Kloecker Funeral Home and Crematory, Inc. is handling the arrangements. Send condolences to www.kloeckerfuneralhome.com
In lieu of flowers, memorials can be sent to Erie First Assembly, 8150 Oliver Rd. S, Erie, PA 16509.
