   Sandra Genevieve Newland was born to Clyde and Genevieve Thomasin Tulsa November 23, 1938.
   She died June 24, 2014, preceded by her parents.
   She is survived by her husband of almost 54 years, Max; her sister, Shirley, of Middlesex, NJ; three daughters, Particia "Trish", of Havelock, NC; Virginia, of Aurora, CO; and Elizabeth, of Del Dity, OK; as well as six grandchildren, Jordan, Brandi, James, Taylor, Bailie, and Alexa.
   She married Max Newland August 12, 1960.
   Graduate of Will Rogers High School and, with a bachelor's in education from Oklahoma State University, she chose to be the homemaker for Max and their three daughters. As her girls grew, Brownie (Girl Scout) troop leader and homeroom mother were her self-appointed roles, as well as taxi driver and loving supporter.
   She enjoyed reading and traveling, chocolate and ice cream, and a wide range of television, from PBS to science fiction. Her travels encompassed most of the continental U.S., a jaunt into British Columia, and included a tree-year stay in Japan, following Max and his job as much as she was able, including California, New York, and Virginia. When his job had him working out of Manassas, VA but traveling all over the world, she would take the bus from OKC to join him when he made it back to Manassas. And eventually, they always came back to their home in Del City.
   She was very active within the First Church of Oklahoma City, assisting Max first with the church bus, bringing those without transportation to Sunday services in the family car when Max had to work and later, with entering the attendance records. She was a deaconess for many years and in the Oklahoma Disciples Women. She was a dedicated member of the handbell choir and the Loyal Partners Sunday School class.
   Services to be held Sunday, June 29 at 1:30 p.m. at First Christian Church, 3700 N. Walker.
