She was born March 4, 1957, in Texarkana, Texas, to Patrick N. and Maxine Reeves. A 1975 graduate of Nashville Superior School, Sandy went on to graduate from Southern Arkansas University with a bachelor’s diploma in unique education and learning. Sandy taught her “kids” of Mineral Springs and Nashville for 20 several years right before at last retiring to devote her times chasing her grand-babies all-around the state. No matter whether it was a monitor meet, faculty party, swim meet up with, cow demonstrate, softball activity, quiz bowl match, basketball match, and many others., you could constantly hear Nana proudly cheering for her babies.

Nana loved to spend her spare time woodworking, portray, fishing, thrifting, and tending to her flower beds. She wasn’t opposed to the use of baby labor when it arrived to pulling weeds. There will be so lots of instances in which we are reminded of Nana, such as looking at an Excedrin Migraine bottle, which we jokingly referred to as her breakfast, lunch, and evening meal. We will in no way pass a discipline of jonquils without imagining of her want to transplant them into her have lawn, which is what the kids expended most of their childhood performing. Nana always carried all-around a shovel in the vehicle for this very purpose. No resort area was protected from remaining wiped cleanse of every complimentary toiletry no wild bobcat was ever safe from striving to be domesticated. There was never ever a bottle of Febreze that did not also double as her perfume and there was hardly ever a pair of pants that was not covered in Molly hair, including the trousers of all guests to her home.

Sandy is preceded in death by her mother and father, Maxine and Patrick N. Reeves, and just one beloved granddaughter Kendal (Kendal-Bug) Paige Stanley.

She leaves driving a somewhat dysfunctional household that she was very proud of together with a barn comprehensive of “treasures” that her daughter and sons have no notion what to do with. So, if you are looking for non-operating refrigerators from the early 90’s, duck waders full of holes, blend-n-match golfing clubs, barstools from the landfill (assembly demanded), repurposed cabinets, with or without the need of the hardware, plenty of Xmas decorations to adorn the city of Nashville, or enough random household furniture to stage a 3,000 square foot property then be sure to get with us after an proper total of time. Tomorrow should really be wonderful. Absolutely everyone understood that Nana’s favorite estimate was “Go set that in the barn. I may well will need it later on.”

Survivors consist of her individual partner of 40 several years, Arian Stanley a single daughter, Jamie and husband Chad Daniel of Magnolia, AR two sons, Brent and wife Candy, Jared and spouse Tonya, all of Nashville 9 grandchildren, Patrick (PatDan), Erin-Kay (Poo), Caroline (C-Line), Alex (Al-Hoot), Jake (Jaker), Klair (Klairita), Elliot (E), Julianne (Jules), and Jolee (Jojo) two brothers, Scooter and Scott Reeves, and her beloved out of everyone, her adored pet dog, Molly.

Absolutely everyone generally knew the place they stood with Sandy. She appreciated you or she did not, it was black or white. As her children, we are nevertheless seeking to determine out which one it was for every single of us, apart from Baby Jared.
