Mrs. Edwards was born in Pinehurst on February 6, 1955, the daughter of Coy Martin Bowers and Margaret Bracey Bowers. Sandra attended Jordan-Matthews High School, graduating in 1973. She spent her working years working at the Chatham County Group Home and with the handicapped class at Jordan-Matthews. Sandra loved to spend time outside tending to her garden; she loved flowers. You could find her in the kitchen cooking a delicious meal for her family. She did all she could to spoil her grandchildren and great-granddaughter. In her free time, she enjoyed being outside fishing. Sandra loved animals. Sandra was a big sports fan and sports team coach for several different teams. In addition to her father, Sandra is preceded in death by her daughter, Laura Edwards.

The family received friends other times at the home of her mother, Margaret Bowers. A graveside service was held Friday, June 11, 2021, at 2 p.m. at Chatham Memorial Park, 13260 Hwy. 64 West, Siler City, with Roger Edwards officiating.
