Sandra Sue Webber passed away on Monday, August 21, at Laredo Medical Center. She was 77. She was born in Laredo, Texas to John Henry Webber Jr. and Betty Angeline Swisher-Webber on February 11, 1946.
Sandra, or Susie as she preferred to be called, was always a studious person. She worked hard in school and joined several clubs and organizations. In 1966 she was awarded the Activity L award by Laredo Junior College, for exceptional activity in one or more organizations. She was Salutatorian of the 1966 Laredo Junior College graduating class.
She was also hard working, helping her family in Bette's Ceramic Shoppe, where she helped make hundreds of lovely porcelain dolls. She also worked as a court reporter at Randolph Air Force Base in Laredo, Texas. In August of 1970 she received an official commendation for excellent work from Air Force Colonel Robert B. Parson, Commander of the base. She also received an Outstanding Performance Rating. Later she worked for the Texas-Mexican Railway. She spent many years there, making many friends. Her family met many people who remembered her fondly.
Later she worked for the First United Methodist Church. She was very active in the church, working as secretary, treasurer, and holding many other positions including helping with the book sale and other church functions. She made many friends there as well.
Susie had long been a huge fan of Star Trek, particularly the Original Series, and had a large collection of Trek books which she enjoyed reading and re-reading. She often spoke of Star Trek and Star Trek games at length with her grand-nephew Alexander.
In her retirement, she loved watching older Western movies and television shows, and always had one on while she worked at her computer. There she spent her time researching various topics and helping keep the FUMC Newsletter up to date. She always kept herself busy with one project or another.
The family would like to thank the staff of the Laredo Medical Center emergency room and ICU, in particular nurse Julian Rodriguez in the ICU who was extremely caring and empathetic, and helped to ease a difficult time.
