Sandra Turner was born March 31, 1952, in Flint, Michigan to parents Sammy and Juanita Terrell. She was a graduate of Northern High School, class of 1970. Sandra had a nurturing spirit which could be seen through her career as a caregiver. She was like a second mother to many throughout her life. In her later years she decided to settle in Arlington, Texas to be close to her remaining siblings. She was an avid reader, who loved her plants, going to the casino, and playing spades with family.
