Sandra R. Baxter
It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Sandra Ruth Baxter. She was born July 24, 1945, in Arkansas, to parents Glenn and Rae Schultz, and died peacefully on February 4th, 2017, in Henderson, Nevada.
She grew up and spent most of her life in Minnesota until moving to Henderson in 2001. Sandra was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She was a true inspiration to those around her, and a wonderful role model for her children and grandchildren. She lived her life with grace, dignity, class, and a little bit of sass. She worked as a Human Resources Specialist for District 833 schools in Minnesota, then for the City of Henderson. She was a supportive wife to "Mr. B" the "snake man" science teacher and swim coach. Sandra took joy in spending time with her husband holding hands, listening to 1960's oldies, traveling, and shopping for the perfect piece of jewelry. She loved her home in Henderson and liked to sit in the sun and watch the jets go by, or the lights of the valley come on. She enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren, and friends from both Nevada and Minnesota. She was the loving mommy to her dachshunds, Sophie and Lucy.
She was preceded in death by her parents, and her favorite doggie Fannie.
She is survived by husband, Chuck; brothers, Dennis (Carol) and Glen; children, Lisa (Jim), Kimberly (Paul) and Michael (Christina); and grandchildren Eli Ripley, Angelia Joy Hoffman, Rebecka Turner (John), Autum Koenigs, Chase Baxter and Ambur Koenigs; along with many nieces and nephews. She was loved greatly and will be missed dearly by many.
In lieu of services, flowers, and cards, Sandra wished that donations be made to her favorite charities: Human Society, ASPCA, and the American Cancer Society.
