Sandra Helen Pond, 77, was born July 23, 1936 in Kansas City, Missouri, and passed away March 1, 2014 in Lake Forest, CA. Sandy is survived by her son, Anthony Pond; daughter-in-law, Holly Pond; and two grandchildren: Steven and Tori Pond.
Sandra, Sandy, Grandma Sandy called San Diego her home where she married Billy Pond in 1954. She was an optometric trainer in the 60’s, then spent the rest of her life as a homemaker. Sandy took pride in her family and her homes both in San Diego and later in Irvine. She loved music, crocheting, painting, reading and having numerous home projects going at once. She was a devoted wife, mom and grandmother, and was a great friend to many. She took on the problems of those close to her as if they were her own. She used her great sense of humor to defuse the most challenging situations – including her own; and she always put smiles on the faces of those challenged. Many friends said she was the life of the party. She will always live brightly in our hearts.
A memorial service will take place Thursday, March 27, 2014 from 7:00-9:00pm at the Plaza Room, Saddleback Church, 1 Saddleback Parkway, Lake Forest, CA 92630.
