LEWISTON: Our caring, loving Sandra went home to God in heaven on Friday December 20, 2019 at CMMC in Lewiston with her loving family by her side. It’s a very difficult time for all of us. She meant everything to us all. She was born in Lewiston on April 14, 1955 a daughter of the late Robert and Reta (Fitzsimmons) Holt. She grew up in Mechanic Falls and attended local schools there. She was a graduate of Edward Little High School and went on to earn her Bachelor’s Degree in Childhood Education. On November 30, 1974 she married Alan Wilson in Lewiston at Ss. Peter & Paul Church and they started a family together. As a mother, she would help her children, Katie and Alan Jr. stay safe, have great holidays, guide them through school and manage all of life’s struggles. There was a great deal of love. She was the perfect loving wife as well. Alan needed nothing else in this world but her. Sandi was a great balance for many people, including Alan, because she could make people see the human side of issues. In her career with HeadStart, she spent 30 years working with 4-year-olds; many of whom were deficient in skills that we take for granted. From when the year started to when the year ended the children would greatly increase in their skills. She made a true difference in their lives. She had many fan clubs wherever she went. She spent a few years working with mentally handicapped people; all of whom loved her. Sandi also wrote a children’s book, “Robbie’s Rabbit” that she was very proud of. Finally, she worked at everyone’s favorite, Elm Street School in Mechanic Falls. Her training involved a lot of early childhood education. So, there she worked with the kindergarten and first grade teachers. They found her invaluable. The most troublesome children, she could make a difference with. Again, making a true difference in lives. She will be deeply missed by many. She is survived by her loving husband of 45 years, Alan Wilson of Mechanic Falls, her children; Katie Hayward and her husband Scott of Farmingdale, and Alan Jr. of Poland as well as her sister Sharon and her husband Michael and their son Michael, Jr. of Poland, her brother Jeffrey and his wife Nancy of Lewiston and their children, Michael, Samantha and Anthony, her father-in-law Robert Wilson of South Portland, her sister-in-law Heidi Wilson also of South Portland and many nieces and nephews. She also leaves behind her very special grandchildren, who were the light of her life, Cole, Ainsley, Riley and Hadley. She, along with Alan loved being grandparents and could not get enough of the grandchildren. She was predeceased by her brother Robert “Robbie” Holt, Jr. Condolences and fond memories of Sandi may be shared at www.thefortingroupauburn.com The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to all those who have shown their support and offered their thoughts and prayers during this immensely trying time.
