Sandra Dee Lyons

Sandra came to Sitka in March 2021 for medical care, and loved her apartment on Hollywood Way. She made friends with her care providers and neighbors and always kept a hopeful attitude. In April of this year, she moved to the long-term care unit of Cordova Community hospital.

Sandra was a people person, made friends easily and tried to cheer her care providers.

 As a young woman she was always on the go, hunting, fishing, gardening and spending time on her property at Point Agassi. Nine years ago, she was the log rolling champion of the Petersburg 4th of July festivities. Her great aunt Deborah Lyons (of Sitka) was her friend and advocate during her time in this community.

Sandra was preceded in death by her great-grandparents Casper and Amy Hallingstad; grandparents Myron Lyons Sr. and Gertrude Lyons; father Myron Lyons Jr. and mother Julie Owens; and sister Brenda Lyons.

Sandra is survived by her children, Holli Davis of Petersburg and Craig Weimer of Georgia, and two grandchildren.

The Petersburg family relatives are planning a celebration of life at the Petersburg ANB Hall at 4 p.m. on July 9.

Letters of condolence may by mailed to PO Box 2397 Sitka AK 99835.
