     Sandra Turbeville Strickland of Nichols passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Friday, April 16, in her home. She was 71.

     Born Nov. 7, 1949 in Marion County, she was the daughter of the late Jasper “Jack” and Esteliene Hill Turbeville and the widow Jimmy Craig Strickland.

     Ms. Sandra was a member of Green Sea Baptist Church, attended WMU at Nichols Baptist Church and a member of the American Legion Auxiliary. She loved the Lord and her family. To her children she was mama, but to her precious grandchildren she was mema, which was a title she wore proudly. She loved to quilt, crochet and create crafts for many to share. Sandra had a heart for caring for others and she showed that with the love that she provided for so many. She has touched the lives of many people in her church, her community and most of all her home. No one ever had to question her love for her Lord, family or friends. Her faith was unshakeable.

     In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to Palmetto Girls State, Inc., American Legion Auxiliary Department of South Carolina, 810 Dutch Square Blvd, Suite 211, Columbia, SC 29210.
