Funeral services for Sandra Hollis, 76, of Chico, Texas, will be 10 am Saturday, February 25, 2023, at Hudson & Torres Family Funeral Home in Bridgeport, Texas, with burial to follow at Chico Cemetery. Visitation will be 6-8 pm Friday, February 24, 2023, at Hudson & Torres Family Funeral Home. She entered her eternal resting place February 19, 2023, in Chico, Texas.
Born September 13, 1946, to Omar and Oma (Young) Milligan, Sandra was a godly woman who stood firm in her beliefs. She spent time each day reading her bible and passing on her Christian beliefs to her children, grandchildren, and anyone that she could. She was a friend to everyone and never met a stranger. She was a wife, mom, nana, daughter, sister, and friend, just to name a few. She was a mentor and counselor to many. She could bring a smile to your face, even on your worst days. Her smile was contagious, and her personality was unforgettable. What an impact she made on this world.
She spent her life serving others. As a mother of three, she was a Sunday school teacher, PTO member, 4-H leader, Cub Scout leader, church camp sponsor, and the kids’ biggest supporter and fan in the stands. Later, she was a substitute teacher, cafeteria manager, and the best waitress you could ask for at K-Bob’s restaurant in Decatur, as well as a few other restaurants.
Her role became even bigger as she had grandchildren and became everyone’s “Nana.” From every sporting event, band concert, award ceremony, and graduation, Nana was there supporting her grandkids. They were the light of her life and will miss her deeply.
Those left to cherish her memory are son Eddie Ward and wife, Lisa; daughters Dianna Tiller and Missy Patterson; brother Larry Milligan and wife, Sandra; grandchildren Drew Ward and wife, Bailey, Lauren Newton and husband, Lee, Derek Ward and wife, Megan, Tamara Proctor and husband, Tyler, Dakota Williams, Hunter York and wife, Tanna, Alli York, Tanner York, and Paisley Patterson; great-grandchildren Chase, Gracie, Brayden, Chloe, Brantley, Rustin, Landon, Milly, Tucker, and Reid; nephew Brandon Milligan; niece Kara Dungo; and a host of family and friends.
Sandra is preceded in death by her parents; stepfather Tom Leggett of Chico; husband Walter Hollis of Chico; stepson Rodney Hollis of Rhome; granddaughter Melissa Robinson of Chico; sons-in-law Raymond Tiller of Chico, and Chad Patterson of Paradise, Texas.
