Sandra Ann Long, age 74, of Laurel, DE passed away peacefully, on July 13, 2018 surrounded by her loving family after a 43 year battle with M.S. She was born in Philadelphia, PA (before moving to Dagsboro) to the late George E. II, and Mildred Mae Fisher Long on October 20, 1943. She was a retired hairdresser, working many years at Stockley Center. She raised two children. She was a volunteer coordinator for several years at the Christian Storehouse. She loved to make everyone happy and her hobbies included bird watching, sharing stories and watching TV. Her favorite re-runs are “Little House” and “The Waltons.” She somehow could decode her TV remotes, baffling her family. She cherished every moment she could be with family. She loved classic cars with loud exhaust pipes! Sandra loved all animals, especially her beloved dog “Oliver” and cat, “Precious.”
She is survived by two children: Charles Wilkerson, and wife Tracey, of Laurel; and Amy Littleton, also of Laurel, DE. She has one brother: George E. “Sonny” Long III, and his wife Debbie. There are six grand-children: Michelle Elizabeth Mousa, and her husband Sam; Charley Marie Malone, and her husband George; Patrick Lee Littleton; Charles Lee Wilkerson, III “C.J.”; Amanda Brooke Whaley; and Timothy Scott Causey. Two great-grand-children: Anisa Mousa; and Ibrahim Mousa. Sandra had several special friends: Karen; Sara Beth; Patty and Henry; Paula; Janet; Connie; Stella and Marion; and many other friends, and extended family. In addition to her parents, she was preceded by a sister Sharon Amy Long.
