In memory of
Sandra K. "Sandi" (Drew) Williams
Sandra K. "Sandi" (Drew) Williams, age 71, of Erie, passed away at UPMC Hamot, on Tuesday, January 10, 2017. Sandi was born in Erie, Pa., on July 12, 1945, a daughter of the late Milton A. and Edna Moultrie Drew. Sandi was a graduate of Strong Vincent High School and later attended evening classes at Tech Memorial High School. Sandi worked at Hamot Hospital as a EKG Technician for many years. Sandi also worked at the Gertrude A. Barber Center as a Secretary in Residential Services, Training Department, Health Services and Receptionist; she was considered a counselor to many and a mother figure to most for over 30 years, retiring in January 2011. During her life, Sandi was an active member of Henderson United Methodist Church, she loved scrapbooking, sewing, reading, traveling and bowling for many years with her beloved husband Carl, to whom she was married for over 50 years. Sandi was full of life, loving, caring, kind-hearted and a virtuous woman. Sandi's husband and family meant the world to her and it showed in her kindness to them as well as to others. She was very humble and loving, willing to give when and where she could. She loved to get together with her friends and family for a good time or bad and was always willing to go when she was able. Sandi traveled to many states in the United States with her husband. When he ran marathons, she was his sidekick and number one cheerleader through thick and thin. Sandi endured so much but she never gave up or gave in. She had a heart of Gold. Sandi is gone from this earth but she will never be gone from our hearts. Sandi was Carl's Queen and was our own angel here on earth; she has now earned her Heavenly crown and wings, and will watch over us as she always did in life. In addition to her parents Sandi was preceded in death by a granddaughter Emma Kurelowech and by four brothers John M. Drew, DeVere G. Drew, Ronald R. Drew and Gerald Drew and two sisters Helen R.
