Sandra Verdoes passed away on Sunday, December 11, 2022 with family present at the age of 79, after living in Schertz, Texas for four and a half years.
She was born in Crowley, Louisiana on July 20, 1943 to parents Arthur Boulet and Agnes Hanks.
Her employment took her to Chicago, and then to California, she loved living there and ended up living there most of her adult life.
It’s there she met her husband, Ernie. They have traveled all over the US, living and loving the RV lifestyle for many years.
Sandy worked at a Fred Astaire Dance studio and taught her brother Wayne to dance. They competed in dance contests and were the winners of several.
In the early 60’s, Sandy took brother Felix to a Houston baseball game. He asked her, “what are they building over there?” She told him it was indoor stadium for baseball, it turned out to be The Astrodome.
In her quiet time, she did counted cross stitch, and made several beautiful pieces. Sandy liked shopping and keeping up to date with the latest fashion trends, she also liked to throw parties at her beautiful home for her friends and family. She had several dogs over the years, but they (the dogs) didn’t know that, they were her babies and were always spoiled.
It was hard at times to tell when she was teasing you, was she mad? Or just trying to get under your skin. Her caregivers have given many stories, names that she gave each of them to tease and jokes she’s shared.
Sandy is preceded in death by her parents Arthur and Agnes, her grandparents Elta and Felix Hanks, her sister-in-laws Shirley and Barbara and her nephew Robbie.
She is survived by her husband Ernie Verdoes, her stepchildren Valery, Andrew, and Mike, and her multiple grandchildren. Margaret, a young woman that she took under her wing, so Margaret’s kids became her grandchildren too. Her brothers Wayne, Roger, and Felix and their spouses, along with numerous nieces and nephews.
