Sandra Lee Minton

Jul 19, 2022

Former Yreka Resident, Sandra L. Minton joined the angels in Heaven on July 19, 2022 in Chico, California with her family by her side.

Sandra was born in Sacramento, CA on June 2, 1948 to Bill and Phyllis Williams and spent her school years in West Sacramento. Sandra was an incredibly loving and devoted wife, mother, and grandmother as well as an amazing friend to many. She was a ray of light to all who knew her.

Sandra was known for her radiant smile and a servant’s heart. She spent much of her life volunteering for many organizations including Christian Women’s Club, and two youth groups, Young Life and Campaigners. She organized and set up an after-school youth program to provide elementary students with after school activities.

Sandra was grateful that she was able to travel to many countries including Europe, Canada, and Mexico.

Sandra is survived by her husband and soul mate of 55 years, Robert Minton. She was the cherished mother of daughters Lisa Handley (Lee) of Bend, Oregon and Lindsey Wahl (Erich) of Chico, California. She was the proud Grammy of grandchildren Lauren and Leeson Handley of Bend, and Evan, Madelyn, and Hannah Wahl of Chico. She leaves a sister, Patty McKinnon (Tim), sister-in-law, Penny Nichols (John), brother-in-law, Ray Minton (Peggy), sister-in-law, Linda Weber (Paul), and sister-in-law, Robin Smith (Tim). She also leaves behind numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Sandra was predeceased by her parents, Bill and Phyllis Williams as well as her brother, Bruce Williams.

A Celebration of Life will be scheduled in the future.
