Saundra's faith in the Lord was evident in her daily life. Her unfailing love for her family will be felt by them for eternity. She was a beloved member of Life Church-Eagle Creek Campus where she served faithfully for several years. Saundra also enjoyed many other friendships from her childhood, work places and past church memberships. Anyone that knew her would simply describe her as 'An Angle.'
