Life Story

 

Sandra D. Eubanks was born October 18, 1944, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  She was the daughter of the late Royal Eubanks and the late Etheline Alexander Eubanks. She grew up in North Philadelphia along with her brother, Reginald Eubanks, who preceded her in death.  

 

Sandy graduated from Simon Gratz High School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After graduation and beyond, Sandy amassed an extensive resume mainly in the clerical and administrative field.

 

Although Sandy did not have children of her own, she was very instrumental in the upbringing of her nephew, Brent Eubanks and niece, Kendra Eubanks. She also doted over her great nephew, Mikael Eubanks and great nieces, N'Diya Sawyer and Aniyah Eubanks, especially at Christmastime.

Christmas was her favorite holiday. She would host dinner and have the biggest gift bags full of presents for the kids.

 

Sandy enjoyed entertaining guests at her home. She would roll out the red carpet to ensure all had a good time. She especially enjoyed when her cousin Cathy (who was like a sister to her) and family would visit. Not to mention her cousin Bill, his wife Maria and their children.

 

She absolutely loved to shop. She had an appreciation for fine jewelry, furs and designer clothing. She would also collect ardent spirits she discovered while traveling. Sandy traveled often, leaving her footprints on almost every continent.  She especially enjoyed taking cruises with her friends.

 

Sandy had a close-knit group of friends, some she has known since childhood. Those who knew Sandy well considered it a blessing for her to call you a friend. She was very discerning about who she got close to. Those who were close to Sandy, were fortunate to experience her authentic love, generosity and unwavering support.

 

Sandy had a pet monkey named Helen whom she loved dearly. Although it has been many years since Helen passed away, she kept memories of her through pictures and monkey figurines throughout her apartment.

 

Our beloved Sandra D. Eubanks (Sandy) died Monday May 24,2021 at the age of 76.  She leaves to cherish many wonderful memories in the hearts and minds of her family and friends.

 

Thank you to the VNA Health System and her longtime caregiver, Yvonne Mathis and little helper Chase, for exceptional care during Sandy's illness.

 

"As beautiful as a rose to see, was her life lived so gracefully,

 She made things precious by her touch, her selfless love lives on in each of us,

 The petals of her life fell one by one, each a gift of her heart 'til there was none,

 Yet her radiance blooms once again, In fields of glory with no end".

 Your Sister-in-Law, Elva Eubanks
