1938 – 2013

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Sandra B. Pratt, 75, of Anaheim, Calif., passed into eternal celebration with the Lord on Friday, Nov. 1.

Sandy was born in Lewiston on Feb. 7, 1938, to Kenneth G. Brewer and Laura (Morrill) Brewer, and attended school there. In 1956, she married Fred Paul Pratt, also of Lewiston, and they had five children together.

Sandy was active in many local clubs in the Lewiston-Auburn area and was an enthusiastic supporter of her children’s many activities. The Pratt family left Maine in August 1971, and relocated to Fountain Valley, Calif. Sandy later purchased a home in Laguna Beach, Calif., with a view of the beach — her favorite place to be. She lived in Laguna Beach for more than 20 years.

She successfully owned and operated Blue Bird Towing of Santa Ana, Calif., from 1976 until the business closed in 2012. She was the first female owner and operator of a towing company in southern California and she served as president of the California Tow Truck Association. Even in retirement, her advice and council was sought by her colleagues.

Sandy’s greatest love was her children and grandchildren. She is survived by her sons, Paul Pratt (Kim) of Anaheim, Calif., Steven Pratt (Katherine) of Huntington Beach, Calif., and Gregory Pratt (Lisa) of Fountain Valley, Calif.; her daughter, Laurie Pratt of Aliso Viejo, Calif.; 10 grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; her ex-husband and lifelong friend, Fred Pratt; her sister, Kathy Lancaster Bourland; and many beloved nieces, nephews and friends.

She was predeceased by a son, Perry Keith Pratt; and her sister, Jo-Anne Brewer Smith (David).
