Sandra Nowak, a life-long resident of Houston, TX, died Monday night, the 15th of January.
Sandra was born in 1942 in Houston, TX. Growing up, she attended catholic schools and graduated Summa Cum Laude from Incarnate Word Academy.
Sandra enjoyed good food, mystery novels, shopping, and had a smile that could light up a room. Sandra was a generous and thoughtful friend, a caring and loyal sister, a doting and energetic "Meme," a loving and attentive mother, and a devoted and cherished wife...basically a rock star!
Sandra loved taking great care of her husband, children and grandchildren but above all, Sandra loved The Lord, and found great joy in prayer and doing for others. She was a 44 year member of St. Edward's Catholic Community, supported the church's many fundraising efforts, and had a special devotion to Divine Mercy.
