Sandra T.H. Whitmore passed away peacefully at her home on Sunday, July 16. Sandy was born in the British Colony of Hong Kong. Her parents died while she was an infant and she was taken to Po Leung Kuk Orphanage where she stayed until she was adopted by her new parents. In Kailua, Hawaii she became a naturalized citizen in 1971.

Sandy stayed in Hawaii and graduated from Waipahu High School in 1967. She worked as a Dietary Technician in Hawaii until she met and married her husband and moved to San Francisco and eventually to Oakley. She continued to work as a Dietary Technician until she retired after 25 years.

Sandy is survived by her loving husband Richard of 38 years, her devoted daughter Elizabeth Litaea, her partner Tim McCoy, father in law Eldred, mother in law Jean, brother in law Craig and sister in law Dee.

Her loving sweet spirit will be missed by all who knew her.

There will be no services here. Sandy's ashes will be taken home to Hawaii and spread in Waimanalo Beach Park.
