Sandra Lee Oakes , Age: 77
February 28, 1940 -- December 29, 2017

Sandra Lee Oakes, 77 years old, died in her home in Lenexa, Kansas on December 29, 2017, after a long battle with cancer. Visitation will be held from 6:00-7:00 p.m. with the rosary prayed at 6:30 p.m. Friday, January 5, 2018, at the Porter Funeral Home, Lenexa, KS. A Requiem Mass will be offered at St. Rose Philippine Duchesne Catholic Church at 5035 Rainbow Boulevard, Mission Woods, Kansas 66205 at 11 am on Saturday, January 6th, 2018, followed by burial at St. John Catholic Cemetery at Pflumm Road and West 89th Terrace in Lenexa, Kansas. Sandy was born on February 28, 1940 in Evanston, Illinois and grew up in Lake Zurich, Illinois, but had recently moved to Kansas to be closer to family. She is survived by her husband, Bill, her children, Stacey Johnson, Troy Sherman, and Erin Garrett, step-children Lori Hayen and Stephen Oakes, thirteen grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her parents, Stanley and Minnie (nee Rohrer) Sebby, and her brother, Wade Sebby. She and Bill recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary. She attended Lawrence Liberal Arts College in Appleton, Wisconsin and then Northwestern University, where she earned a degree in physical therapy. She worked as a physical therapist and as a director of special education until she bought a share of her mother’s women’s and children’s clothing store, Fashion Corner. During that time, she also served as the president of the Lake Zurich Chamber of Commerce, as did her mother, years before her. She and Bill retired to North Carolina, where they lived until about a year ago. Sandy was a kind and loving wife and mother. She was always up to a task, no matter how challenging, and she will be greatly missed.

My deepest sympathy to the Oakes family, I, sorry for your loss. The Bible’s hope for the future brings much comfort to those who are grieving. John 5:28, 29 says: “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out”. God is yearning to resurrect the dead in his upcoming new world. My condolences are with you and your family at this time
