Sandra Marie Ferguson was born on January 27, 1938 to Garland Ferguson and Loraine Gilliam. She entered into peaceful, eternal rest with her Lord and Savior on Wednesday, August 17, 2022.

Sandra was born in Columbus, Ohio, and attended Columbus Public Schools, including the historic East High School. She worked in a variety of professions before finding her passion in early childhood education. Sandra spent the last 10 years of her work career in this profession, lovingly working with young children helping them get a head start in life. She was a faithful and dedicated employee of the Montessori Early Learning Center until her retirement in 2010.

Sandra had been a loyal wife, strong and supportive mother of four children, a devoted daughter and caring sibling. She loved to dance and listen to old-school R&B music, especially any song by Al Green and Marvin Gay. Sandra was known for telling comical stories that had everyone laughing, dressing up, and wearing beautiful-smelling perfume. She lived a life that will live on in the hearts and memories of all who knew and loved her.

Sandra is proceeded in death by her father, Garland Ferguson, her mother, Loraine Wilson, who she deeply loved; brother, George Ferguson, who was her best friend; sister, Linda Duckett, who she cherished, and maternal aunt Genevieve Gwynn who she adored.

Sandra leaves to treasure her memories, Sons: Darrell Ferguson, Tyrone (Loretta) Ferguson; Daughters: Trina (James) Combs, and Sonja Ferguson. Sister: Janet Ferguson, Grandchildren: Maurice (India) Ferguson, Marcus (Teretha) Ferguson, Ashley Combs, Joshua Combs, LaChae (Lamar) Harris, Tanita White, and Montez (Nicole) White, along with 11 great-grandchildren, and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, other relatives, and friends.
