Sandra Dawley – Dec. 20, 1954 – Feb.13, 2020

Sandra Lee Dawley, 65, passed away on Feb. 13, 2020.
She was born on Dec. 20, 1954, in Eugene and lived her entire life in the area. She graduated from Springfield High School in 1973.
Sandra lived her life always doing for others. She owned her own cleaning business for the last 20 years. All of her clients were like family to her.
She loved bringing flowers just to brighten people’s days. She always went above and beyond and cared so much about the work she did. Her kind, compassionate and thoughtful spirit touched the lives of those around her.
She loved to cook and share her meals with others. She loved gardening, planting flowers, painting, drawing and especially loved writing poetry. She was so proud to be writing a book.
She loved cats and was the best grandma to her cat, Lucky. Sandra also loved her ”adopted” nieces, nephews and grandkids. She loved finding ways to spoil them. She also loved going to the go-kart races and watching the kids race. The children in her life brightened her days beyond measure. Watching them grow up brought her so much joy and happiness.
Sandra’s love for life was contagious. Her bright and shining spirit will be missed by many. She was an angel in the shape of a mom, a sister, an aunt, a grandma, and a friend to so many. She is survived by her daughter, Sheri Gabert; brother, Greg; and sisters, Janice and Marilyn.
In lieu of gifts, please plant a flower in your garden to remember her by. A Celebration of Life is planned for April 19 at 1 p.m. at the Dorris Ranch Barn in Springfield.
