Sandra Oliver was born to Pete and Zelma Pearson Grady in Batesville, Arkansas. She loved life to the fullest and was treasured by her family as their source of faith. She always enjoyed her family and cooking was her best gift to them. Sandra’s passion for her family was noted at all family events especially during the holidays. She married Roy Oliver and together they shared thirty-three years of marriage. Her family will miss her Facebook Posts and comments; her many hours of Cross-stitching Master Pieces she gave as gifts. And if any one is known as the BEST fan of Ranger Baseball it’s Sandra. She was a member of the Church of Christ.

Jimmy Driggers, Lewis Dean Driggers, Carol Fontenot, and Glenda Childress, are her children who precede her in death; as well as her parents.

She is survived by her husband Roy Oliver; her daughter Lisa Dowdall; her brother Tom and sister-in-law Sandra; her numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
