Sandra A. Sour


Sandra Sour passed away on April 12, 2019, with her family by her side after a sudden and unexpected illness.
Sandy was born on April 21, 1957, in California and was raised in orphanages and foster homes.
In her early 20s, she left California, traveled across the United States, and eventually settled in Sharon. There, she met her best friend, Marjorie Miller. Sandy became an important part of the Miller family, and her friendship with Marjorie spanned three decades.
Sandy lived in the Shenango Valley for several years before relocating to the Philadelphia area. She was a loyal, dedicated and hard worker, and although she struggled with dyslexia all of her life, she had a productive and successful career at Drexelbrook Engineering Co. as a machinist.
She was certified in welding, basic electronics and machine shop.
For the past 15 years, Sandy worked for Growth Horizons Inc. in Horsham as a residential care provider for individuals with developmental delays and mental illness issues. She was an excellent caregiver and was dedicated to treating all of her clients with patience and respect.
Sandy will be greatly missed by her coworkers, friends and family including Marjorie Miller, her dog, Dewey, Janine and Dan Barber and Glenn and Courtney Miller; her nephews, Jeremy Miller and his wife Marcie, Nicholas Barber and his fiancee Ashleigh Jugan and Connor Ivan; and her niece, Kara Barber and her partner Evan Wise.
Her niece and nephews are fortunate to have had Sandy in their lives, always supporting them and bursting with pride at their many accomplishments. "Aunt Sandy" attended every school graduation, sporting event, award ceremony, birthday party and other lifetime celebrations. She loved her niece and nephews unconditionally and would have done anything for them.
Sandy overcame so many obstacles in her life. She is an inspiration to everyone who knew her.
