Sandra Renee Wilson-Bracy
“If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well.”
On Wednesday, July 31, 1974, in the Sterlington Memorial Hospital in the small southern town of Sterlington. Louisiana a beautiful baby girl born to Clyde and Annie Johnson Wilson To this pie-faced precocious little girl was given the name Sandra Renee. This quiet always smiling baby would grow up to be an inquisitive, self disciplined, young lady determined to live her life and share her gifts with the children. Extremely talented and possessing the aptitude and the attitude, she left a lucrative career to share her gifts with the children of the Morehouse Parish School System. On Saturday, September 30, 2023. Sandra Renee left her earthly home and joined her loved ones: her dad, Clyde Wilson, her grandmother, Mrs. Lougenia Johnson, and her two grandbabies, Kamilia Lynn and Alivia Joy Dudley.
As a child, Sandra was very close to her sister, Monica. Although they were a few years apart, they covered for each other. Monica did not mind asking her mom, Annie, for permission to ride their bikes or visit other relatives. On one occasion, Monica, told Sandra their mom had given permission to ride across town. She did not. They shared secrets that were not disclosed until they were adults including skipping school and other teenage indiscretions that were just down right fun. Washing dishes was not one of Sandra's favorite chores. When she couldn't Monica to cover for her, well, she would just throw the dishes away. Her mom could never figure out why dishes just disappeared. All she had to do was look in the grass in the back yard.
Her parents instilled in her the importance of education. In high school, she excelled academically, played basketball and ran track.. She was extremely proud of her letterman jacket that carried patches from her various sports. After high school, she attended Grambling State University, receiving her Associates, Bachelor's Degree, career, and Masters' Degree, and was working on her Doctorate at the time of her demise. She loved working with children in her Sunday School, taking the time to touch their lives as well as her beloved students at Bastrop High School. Teaching was her ministry; working with and loving children was her passion. She loved to watch her students blossom and grow. She carried her teachings to her home church, True Vine where she touched children and adults alike.
Sandra did not believe in injustice. She did not fear controversy nor was she afraid of an altercation if she felt someone was being treated unfairly.
She was blessed with four children; Kevin, Jr., Justice, Asyia, and Tyiler. Even as she worked to achieve her degrees, she sacrificed time and rest to make sure they received the proper education and made sure they were safe. She believed in being fair and true to oneself.
Sandra was very stylish and delighted in spending quality time shopping with Asyia. She loved couponing and finding deals. Along with these fun activities, , she loved chocolate milk and bags and bags of ice, especially from Sonic. Her favorite foods included such things as mussels, Lays potato chips, movie theater popcorn. She even did a few Tik Tok dances when the opportunity presented itself. The little things and pleasures of life brought her joy and she shared that joy with her brother-in love, Marcus Rabun, and her precious grandbabies, Jay'Den, De'Lasyia, and her son-in-love (to be) Deontrae, and a special surprise very soon.
"To be called to teach is to be chosen by God to serve a greater purpose, serving many people and influencing their development and abilities to positively contribute to their communities."
" So was the life of Ms. Sandra Renee Wilson Bracy.
Her Love for Life and her Legacy Lives On."
