Andrea Anita Arline (Sanchez) July 17,1955 - August 25, 2019
Surrounded by family, Andrea (Andy) peacefully entered into eternal life on August 25, 2019 at the age of 64. Born July 17, 1955 to Joe and Ruth Sanchez whom preceded her in death. Andy graduated from Norte Del Rio High School in 1973 and spent her working years in the medical field as a medical assistant, caregiver and scheduler.
Andy was an avid reader, a movie buff with her favorite genres being sci-fi, action and musicals and she loved and appreciated all music. She loved unicorns and their symbolism of mythical fantasy, magic, imagination and a sense of wonder. She was very creative and enjoyed stamping and making her own cards, scrapbooking, embroidery, making treat bags and party favors and wrapping packages so beautifully that one wouldn’t want to open them!
Andy is survived by children Ronnie (Brian), Paula and Tony (Linda) and grandchildren Lizzy, Sonny, Xoch, Marisa, Julie, Kiki, Toni, David and Andrew. Also siblings Joey (Brigitte), Susie (Rich) and Ernie (Terri), nieces Jennifer, Kristina, Gabrielle, Alexis and Vanessa, nephews Maurice and Zach and countless cousins.
A celebration of Andy’s life will be held on Saturday, September 14, 12-4pm at American River Community Church Fellowship Hall 3300 Walnut Avenue Carmichael, CA 95608. All are welcome to attend.
Andy will be dearly missed and remembered as a kind and gentle soul who loved her family and truly enjoyed making others feel special. She leaves behind a beautiful legacy of kindness, compassion and generosity.
