Sandy went home to the Lord on January 5, 2024 at 5 p.m. after a lengthy health struggle. She fought selflessly to stay through the holidays for her family.
Sandy was born August 18, 1941 in Newburgh, NY. She lived on Hilton Head Island, SC for 46 years. She grew up in Westport, CT and lived briefly in RI and Chicago, IL (during military service), South Hadley, MA (during college) Chapel Hill NC, and Naples FL.
She graduated from Kathleen Laycock Country Day School in Westport, CT. She earned the American Legion School Award. She attended Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts and earned an MS in Elementary Education from Danbury State.
She taught second grade before entering the Naval Reserves as a commissioned officer during which time she earned the Aquidneck Business and Professional Women’s Club Leadership Award for Outstanding Personal Example and Moral Responsibility. Sandy worked in a trust department at a bank in Westport, an Economic Development Council in Naples, and in other public relations and administrative positions. She worked as an administrative assistant and then as a property manager and owner liaison for Sanddollar Management LP on Hilton Head for 16 years, during which time she earned her real estate license.
She was an accomplished vocalist and pianist, winning second place in the Jenny Lind Competition in Westport in the 1960s. She also sang in church choirs. She was an excellent baker and enjoyed sewing, porcelain painting, and knitting. Sandy led a knitting program for the Boys’ and Girls’ Club of Hilton Head from 2008-09. She loved working with children.
Sandy is predeceased by her parents, Beatrice Georgianna Romig Servais and Henri Joseph Francois Octave Yvan Servais, and her grandmother, Maria (May) Drollinger Romig. She is survived by her daughter, Amanda Lisette Bloom and her beloved grandson, Jonathan Mack Berkemeyer.
Sandy was a dutiful, devoted, kind, compassionate, and generous daughter, mother, grandmother and friend --- and an extremely patient mother! Sandy's friends say she never missed a birthday and they enjoyed her thoughtful notes.
Services will be in the spring, with interment of ashes at Beaufort National Cemetery.
