Mrs. Carver was born March 11, 1947, in Rochester, Penn., daughter of the late William Edward Clayton and Erdis Braziel Clayton.
Sandra was known to her family as the world’s greatest nurturer. She loved to spend quality time with her family at dinners, holidays and her grandchildren’s activities. Sandra was a true servant, not only to her Lord, but also to her family and friends. She never questioned lending a helping hand to anyone in need around her. She was a very selfless person that always put others before herself. Sandra was a proud and active member of The Church at Liberty Square, where she took part in many mission trips to faraway destinations such as Honduras. Some of her hobbies included reading, cooking and traveling to the beach with her husband of 47 years, Ron Carver.
