It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of a remarkable woman, Sandy Haley, who peacefully left this world at the age of 75. She was the cherished matriarch of our family, a beacon of love, wisdom and strength, and her memory will forever grace our lives.
Sandy was born on September 10, 1948 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, a daughter to Perley and Irene Hirtzler. From an early age it was clear that she possessed a rare warmth and grace that would endear her to all who had the privilege of knowing her. She grew up in a family with a strong Catholic faith, and those early bonds of love and support would shape her into the incredible woman we remember today.
Throughout her life, Sandy was a paragon of kindness, selflessness and love. She dedicated herself to nurturing her family, ensuring that their lives were filled with joy, laughter and a profound sense of belonging. As a mother, she was unwavering in her devotion, guiding her children with a gentle hand and an open heart. Her home was a sanctuary of love and acceptance, a place where friend and family always felt welcomed, cherished and at ease.
Sandy was a passionate advocate of her faith, and she instilled in her children and grandchildren a love for God that continues to ripple through the generations. Her wisdom was boundless, and her guidance was sought by all who knew her. Her ability to offer sage advice with love and humility was truly a gift to those around her. She was a peacemaker.
Her role as a Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother was one she cherished. She devoted her time and energy into being a pillar of support for her girls and their families.
In her leisure time, Sandy found solace in traveling with her husband Larry and family.
Sandy is survived by her loving husband of 52 years, Larry; her devoted children, Jennifer Waddle and husband Keith and Jessica Clampitt and husband, David; her adoring grandchildren, Jason Spradley, Sam Clampitt, Sadie Waddle, Stella Clampitt and Wesley Waddle and wife, Misty; and her great-grandchild, Jonathan Spradley and a wide circle of family and friends whose lives were enriched by her presence. She leaves behind a legacy of love and a family bound together by the enduring values she instilled in each of them.
As we mourn the loss of our beloved Mother, let us also celebrate the incredible life she loved and the profound impact she had on all of us. Sandy’s memory will forever be a source of strength and inspiration, reminding us of the power of love, resilience and enduring bonds of family.
