SANDY D. JONES was born on February 6, 1967 in Washington, D.C., and was called home to be with the Lord in the early morning hours of May 8, 2020 after experiencing a health complication. She spent her last moments at Medstar Georgetown University Hospital listening to sweet affirmations from friends and family.

Sandy, the only daughter of the late Chance and Edna Mae Jones, exhibited academic prowess and a keen interest in sports and music throughout much of her childhood and adolescence. A proud Rough Rider, Sandy graduated from Theodore Roosevelt Senior High School in 1985. After a two-year stint at Bowie State University, she pursued a career in program administration and education, serving in various capacities at D.C.-area schools and nonprofits for more than 30 years. In her most recent role at The Arc Montgomery County, Sandy aided staff members in tending to the needs of youth with autism and other developmental disorders.

When not immersed in her professional pursuits, or demanding the best out of her only daughter Tyisha, Sandy could be found at various family functions and concerts hugging babies and grooving to the sounds of The Whispers, Erykah Badu, Kindred the Family Soul, along with a bevy of gospel and old-school go-go bands. She was also one to enjoy trips to the mall and to different cities with her daughter and mother, and occasions where loved ones can gather and share good laughs and gifts. As a member of Canaan Baptist Church since 1999, Sandy often participated in the Voices of Canaan and served under the leadership of her mother as a caterer. During the last four years of her life, Sandy spent much of her time memorializing the late Mrs. Jones and creating new memories with her daughter, aunts, cousins, and other family members, including what would’ve been an annual Mother’s Day cookout this year.

Sandy leaves to honor her legacy: her daughter Tyisha Jones and son-in-law Sam P.K. Collins; her significant other of nearly a decade Ronald Stamps; Tyisha’s father and Sandy’s lifelong friend Kelly Steiner; Sandy’s maternal aunts Annie Baker and Betty Curtis; her paternal grandmother Arletha Jones and a host of great-aunts, great-uncles, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and associates.
