Sandra Lee Hillyer, 71, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, February 12, 2023. Born May 30, 1951, in Front Royal, VA., she was the daughter of Everett Woodrow and Gladys Katherine Powell.

Sandra described herself as a country girl, raised on a farm, and was her daddy’s right hand. She graduated high school and served 20 years in the U.S. Navy as a dental technician. After retiring, Sandra returned to Front Royal to care for her daddy, family in tow. Also, where she married one great love of her life John Berry Hillyer, who preceded her in death. Sandra also lived in Bedford, Troutville and Pulaski, VA. She never knew a stranger, lived life how she wanted. Sandra helped many people down on their luck many times. When asked about her fondest moments she replied, “When I had my kids”. Others include time on the farm, traveling, kayaking, and cleaning up community roads and recycling.
