Sandra J. Stickney

April 28, 1945 — January 27, 2016

Sandra J. Stickney, age 70, of Carlisle, passed away on Wednesday, January 27, 2016 at the M.S. Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA.
She was born on April 28, 1945 in West Reading, PA to the late Lloyd J. and Hilda M. Frederick Kistler.
Sandra was a member of St. Matthews United Church of Christ and was very active in her church. She was in the church choir, the church bell choir and was on the Consistory. She loved to dance and was involved with the Senior Session Activities at the church. She loved decorating her home, playing cards and gardening.
One of her greatest joys was teaching her grandson, Samuel, music and spelling and they spent time together twice a week working on that. Sandra loved going to the beach and made at least two trips to Ocean City, MD every year. She was a very selfless person and always made time for others and took time to help them whenever and however she could.
She is survived by her husband, Merle W. Stickney of Carlisle, whom she married on November 6, 1994; a daughter, Michelle B. (and husband Michael L.) Cruce of Carlisle; a son, Alan B. Adams and his companion Melody A. Eichoff of Carlisle; two step-sons, Wayne M. (and wife Toni) Stickney of Dalton, Ga and Dominic A. Stickney of Benton, TN; a step-daughter, Angeline Marie Stickney (and husband Bryan) Weems of Windsor, CA; three grandchildren; eight step-grandchildren; and a sister, Marlene B. (and husband Martin) Hassler of Morgantown, PA.
