Esther "Terry" D. Sanford, beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, at over 100 years old, went home to be with the Lord Wednesday, March 15.
She left quickly and peacefully. She was born in Newberry, Florida on November 5, 1916. She was the middle child of 5 siblings and out lived them all. She married Clifton A. Sanford when she was 29 years old and they were married 58 years when Clif died in 2002.
She was predeceased by her parents David and Lula Bell Dortch.
She is survived by her 2 children Pam Patterson and husband Dave Patterson, and Gregg Sanford and wife Lori Sanford, and four grandchildren, Amber Patterson, Heather Sequens, Justin Sanford, and Ben Sanford, and two great grandchildren, Ethan Boatenhammer, and Catherine Sequens.
Terry had many loved ones who were just like family to her. She had a heart of gold and showed love to everyone she came in contact with. She was beautiful inside and out. She touched the hearts and lives of so many people in her time here on earth and will never be forgotten. We take peace in knowing she is shining her light in heaven now watching over us, and we will see her again one day. We will honor and celebrate her life Tuesday March 21, 2017 at the Temple Terrace church of Christ building at 5pm for visitation and 7pm for a memorial service (501 Bullard Pkwy, Temple Terrace).
