Sandra Jo Fuqua

July 2, 54,

Sandra Jo “Sandi” Fuqua was called home on Thursday, July 2, 2020 to the loving arms of Jesus Christ her Lord.

Sandi was born in Holland on July 17, 1965 to the late J.C. and Mary Anne Basile Fuqua. She enjoyed life and spending time with her family and friends. Sandi was a valued manager at the Whitley Law Firm, where she worked for 26 years.

Full of life, Sandi’s wit and smile brought joy to all those around her. She knew how to take care of business, loaded with strength and willing to defy odds. Even after developing health issues, she continued her fight to live her life to the fullest. Sandi’s life was full of kind acts for others which gave her great pleasure.

Though Sandi accomplished so much and blessed so many people in countless ways, she would probably say her greatest accomplishment surely would be her two children: Haley and Jaxon. They would tell you that having such a loving, kind, strong, yet gentle mother was one of the greatest blessings of their lives. Sandi leaves behind a legacy of unconditional love and support for the people she cared about.

The family will receive friends on Tuesday, July 7, 2020 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. at The First Pentecostal Holiness Church, 1100 The First Church, Road, Goldsboro. A service celebrating Sandi’s life will begin at 7:00 p.m. in the sanctuary with Pastor Bill Rose officiating. Interment will be at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, July 8, 2020 in Wayne Memorial Park.

Sandi is survived by her children, Haley Rose and Jaxon Rose; sisters, Debbie Farelli and husband Tony of Berlin Center, OH and Kriss Teel and husband Ricky of Pikeville; niece and nephews, Bella Teel, Sawyer Teel, Nathan Farelli, and Matthew Farelli; cousins, Tracy Fuqua and Sarah Wallner; and a dear friend, Bob Whitley.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be giving in Sandi’s memory to Indiana University Neuropathology Research, GSS Research – Dr. Ghetti, 635 Barnhill Drive, Medicine Science Building A-128, Indianapolis, IN 46202.

The family would like to express their appreciation for the compassionate care provided by Community Home Care and Hospice. Love and heartfelt thanks is expressed to her caregivers and friends at Helping Hands. Special thanks also to her wonderful neighbors, friends, and the nurses and doctors who cared for her and her family in so many kind and thoughtful ways and during this time of loss.
