Heaven gained an angel when Sandra Marion Caldwell passed peacefully on March 8, 2017 at home surrounded by her loving family. Sandy was born in Norwich, CT on Oct. 20, 1937 to the late Philip & Lena Isper.

Sandy pursued an education in nursing prior to marrying, Richard S. Caldwell, Sr. When their children started school, Sandy joined the Va Beach school system as an aide and office administration. She retired early to become a full-time grandmother.

Sandy was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She took pride in her children and grandchildren. They lit up her life. She loved unconditionally and was the tie that bound her family. She had a contagious smile and laugh and was accepting of all. Her happy positive attitude was an inspiration to everyone. She will be greatly missed.

Sandy was preceded in death by her husband of 55 years and her 3 siblings. She is survived by her heartbroken children, Richard Caldwell Jr. and wife Lora, Karen Caldwell and fiancé Jamie, Cheryle Caldwell and husband David; 5 grandchildren, Eric, Lexie, Carley, Emily, and Cameron; and great-grandson, Owen.
