She was the second child of four children, one preceded her in death.  At the age of 14, Sandra married the love of her life, Big Jimmy Shirah, who she was married to for 60 years.  Jimmy and Sandra began their life together in Destin, Florida where they had four children - Gayle Roy, Little Jimmy Shirah, Andrea Bacon and Amanda Lively. Sandra is reunited in heaven with her loving husband and two children, Little Jimmy and Andrea. Sandra loved to spend her days roaming Walmart, reading her bible, cooking, catering to her two cats and spending time with family. Sandra devoted her life to taking care of others and always put everyone before herself. Nobody ever left her house hungry. She was a loving and caring person, devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend. Her legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of everyone she interacted with and she will be so severely missed.
