Sandra knew EVERYONE in her family and if you ever needed any information about them, SHE was the one to call.
Sandra loved her family with all her heart from the youngest to the oldest and always made blankets for the newborns. Tyler (son of her late Daughter VaWanda “Neekie”) was the “Apple of her eye:. Not only did he keep her laughing but he surely kept her on her toes.
Sandra was a pillar in the Queensbridge Houses community and very well known. She will truly be missed.
She is proceeded in death by her parents, Mattie and Benjamin Henley, husband William L Johnson Sr. and daughter VaWanda Eunique Margaret Johnson.
She leaves to mourn 3 sons, William Johnson Jr, Lonnie and Damon Johnson. 1 daughter –in-law Kikora Johnson, 20 grandchildren, William III, Jessie, Jayvone, DaQuaya, Dhannayia, Laneasia, Quanajah, Zaire, Khameek, SaQuan, Sheyenne, Joshua, Damesha, DaQuon,Damoni, Akil, Aiden, Tareah, Arnee, and Kimora. 2 great grand-children, Noah and Aaliyah. 3 Godchildren SaQuan, Tilishia and Chalazian. 1 Sister (cousin) Geraldine Skipper, 2 sister-n-laws Patricia Kelly and Rebecca Murray and a best friends of 51 years Celeste Hickman, Elaine Mackey and Sandra Wilson as well as a host of Uncles, Aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
As Sandra would say (with lots of profanity) stop crying, this is not good bye but SEE YA LATER. (wink)
