Sandra (Wooten) Overholser – March 27, 2021

Sandi Overholser, age 79, went to heaven on March 27, 2021, due to Covid related complications.

Sandi was born, March 26, 1942 in Hillsboro, TX and graduated from Waco High School in 1960. She moved to Albuquerque soon after, where she met the love of her life, Donald Overholser, they married March 9, 1962 and recently celebrated 59 years together. She loved and is loved by so many.

As the undisputed matriarch, her loss will be vast. Deeply rooted in Albuquerque, she enjoyed friendships that lasted more than 60 years. Sandi will be greatly missed by all who came to know her. What great times were had!

She is surely singing and leading a celebration on the other side with those that went before her. She was preceded in death by her children, Mark and Krystene. Sandi is survived by her husband Donald; brother, Don Wooten; son, Chris and wife Keni; daughter, Lana and fiance Rod; three grandchildren Shelby, Mallory, Jasah and fiance Dominic and 2 great grandchildren, Khloe and Cassius. She found her joy in spending time with family and friends at her favorite places, her church (Del Norte Baptist Church), Disney, her family cabin, car shows, choir, and numerous social groups.

A gathering commemorating Sandi’s life will be held this summer as soon as the Covid restrictions permit.

  1. Bev Murphy Wells: So sad about Sandra. Sandi was a joy; Loved talking with her at the reunions.  I know she is at peace and her loved ones will miss her dearly. We all will miss her! Praying for family.

  2. Kay Phillips Sparks: This is really sad news. It’s bad enough that we are losing classmates, but I hate that we are losing them to Covid or complications from it.

  3. Tommye Ruth Blair Toler: Oh I’m so saddened to learn of Sandra’s death. I remember her well from high school. I sat with her at the last reunion I attended and enjoyed talking with her so much. COVID is not something to take chances with. Get your vaccines, wear a mask, and don’t gather in large groups indoors. 

  4. Tim Lasseter Latta: I liked Sandi so much. She was such a sweet and fun person. I had a couple of phone conversations with her before and after her dear friend Kay Albright died. They were so close. So sorry she is gone. This is a real shock.

  5. Malissa Starnes Baugh: Sandra had been fighting it all for a long time and had a birthday recently! We are losing so many!
