Let the memory of Sandy be with us forever

Beloved wife, mother, and daughter, Sandra Lou Cox, 64, was born in Houston, Texas to parents B.J. and Rose Marie Springs on December 6, 1949. She passed away on December 2, 2014 in Bakersfield, California.    

Sandy graduated with honors from Ebbert L. Furr High School in 1967. Sandy met her late husband Greg while both worked at Brown and Root and they married in 1976. Sandy was a passionate volunteer, spending much of her time at her children’s schools and later with Via Arté of the Bakersfield Museum of Art. More than anything Sandy delighted in the many close friendships formed throughout her life.    

Sandy enjoyed traveling, working in her yard and spending time with her friends. She was an avid reader and movie enthusiast, and like her husband was a two-step legend. Sandy’s infectious laugh, optimism, and larger than life personality made her a joy to be around. Her generosity, kindness, and love will be greatly missed.    

Sandy is survived by her daughter, Shanna and husband Chris Young; son, Shea and wife April; mother, Rose Marie Springs; brother, Russell Springs; niece Heather Springs; nephew Jason Springs; and many cousins. Sandy is predeceased by her husband Greg and her father B.J. Springs.    

The family would like to thank Sandy’s many friends and family for their support and kindness during this difficult time.

"Today is the 3rd anniversary of mom's passing. I can't believe it has been three years since she left us...I still pick up the phone to call her, so I can tell her what crazy thing Gregory has done or said. Chris, Gregory, and I sold mom's house in August and moved up to Corvallis, OR. It was really hard to sell the house, but her memory is not is always with us no matter where we go. I sit in the living with the fireplace on and look out the windows to the forest watching all the wonderful wildlife and think about how much mom would have enjoyed the deer wondering through the yard every morning. I can even picture her next to me drinking coffee and laughing at the crazy squirrels trying to get into the bird feeders. I know she is with me when I see the hummingbirds hover over the flowers and zoom through the sky. she loved to watch the hummingbirds in the backyard."

"Yesterday was the 2nd anniversary of mom's passing. It was a rough day, but with the holidays approaching, it put a smile on my face by remembering all the wonderful holidays we spent together. Chris, Gregory and I spent this Thanksgiving in Mammoth Lakes, CA. As I sat in the ski lodge with Gregory watching Chris ski down the slopes, I thought to myself...Dad would have loved skiing with Chris, and Mom would have had a great time playing in the snow and sitting in the lodge with Gregory and I drinking hot chocolate. I miss them both so much but hold them in my heart each and every day."

"Sandy will be sorely missed. She was kind and considerate and was a fine friend and an amazing wife to Greg. She so bravely stood by Greg during his illness and passing and demonstrated what "in sickness and in health" is all about.
Rest in peace."
