Hospitality and outreach is how friends and family will remember her. Samaritan’s Purse was very dear to Sondra, giving Christmas gifts in honor of family members for many years. Her smile lit up a room and her home was always full of fun fellowship and most importantly love. She was very kind and giving especially to those who serve others. She was a devoted mother, wife, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, friend and daughter: ”Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.”James 2: 18
