Sandra Rhodes Walker, age 83, passed away peacefully on the morning of October 31, 2023, at Houston Medical Center in Warner Robins, leaving behind cherished memories and a legacy of love and dedication.
Born on June 20, 1940, in Cook County, Georgia, Sandra was the beloved daughter of the late Malvin and Vancine Moore Rhodes. She spent her formative years in the Middle Georgia area, primarily in Warner Robins and Chauncey. In 1958, Sandra graduated from Dodge County High School.
Sandra then found employment at a shirt factory in McRae and also became an ASC affiliate, demonstrating her commitment to her work and community. She married the love of her life, Charles E. Walker, on April 16, 1966. Together, they embarked on a journey that brought them to Warner Robins, where Sandra contributed her talents initially as a secretary and later as a Contract Specialist on Robins Air Force Base for an impressive 30 years before stepping into retirement.
Sandra and Charles ventured to Lake Sinclair for a time before returning to Warner Robins in 2012 to be closer to family. Her family held a special place in Sandra's heart, and she cherished the time spent with all of them, especially her grandchildren. She was an excellent caretaker, and cook who delighted in preparing meals for her loved ones. Additionally, she was an avid reader.
Sandra was not only dedicated to her family and work, but also to her faith. She was a devoted member of Trinity United Methodist Church, where her commitment was evident through her occasional service as the church's secretary. She was also actively involved in the women's group. Sandra's involvement extended to Andrew United Methodist Church in Kathleen, where she later became an active and cherished member.
Sandra Rhodes Walker's legacy lives on in the hearts of all who were fortunate to know her.
