January 2, 1954 — February 21, 2020

Ms. Cassandra Joyce Wilson, “Sandra”, was born January 2, 1954 in Columbus, Georgia, the daughter of Dorothy and Sonnie Wilson. On February 21, 2020, God called His angel home.

Sandra, at the age of twelve, along with her family, moved to Saginaw, Michigan in 1966. She attended Saginaw High School and graduated with the “Class of 1972.” Sandra went to work for General Motors after graduation.
