Sandra was the beloved wife of Jim Richardson. She is survived by her sons, Andrew (Brooke) Richardson and Jonathan (Jen) Richardson; daughter, Heather (Steve) Sigety; and sister, Elizabeth Prothro; and eight beautiful grandchildren, whom she loved dearly.
Sandra had a long career in Education, graduating from FSU and UCF and teaching at several schools in Brevard County. She spent the last 14 years as an ESOL Teacher at South Area Adult Ed and loved meeting and working with her students from all over the world.
Sandy had many interests including: painting, camping, kayaking, hiking, gardening and many outdoor activities. Another passion of Sandy was ministering to children about the love of Christ. She spent many years as a Children’s Pastor at The Tabernacle Church including Pioneers, VBS and Sidewalk Sunday School. And for the last several years she has volunteered in the Children’s Ministry at Centerpointe Church (CPKids) teaching the little ones and Camp Kaboom.
