Obituary for Sandra Day Roberts

Sandra Day Roberts, 81, of Biglerville and Somerset, PA, died Monday June 12, 2023, at the Holy Spirit Hospital in Camp Hill, PA.

Born May 8, 1942, in Mechanicsburg, PA, she was the daughter of Sam and Blanch (Shoop) Heck. She grew up in Williams Grove, PA and graduated from Cumberland Valley High School. In 1976, she married G Thomas Roberts. She worked at Planned Parenthood and volunteered with numerous organizations, including Oakside Community Park, where she started the Girls Youth Softball League. She was an avid golfer, gardener, shopper, and an excellent chef and baker. If you knew Sandy, you knew that she was a staunch liberal and Democrat, she loved dogs, and the Pittsburgh Steelers. One of her proudest achievements was co-owning a non-profit dog rescue, Operation Kona, with her youngest daughter.

Sandy is survived by 5 children and their spouses, Sue Roberts and Becky, Sally Showers and Alan, Amy Ebling and Jan, Andrew Roberts and Colleen, and Sharon; 15 grandchildren, Ben, Brooke, Adam, Caitlin, Morgan, Kelly, Brandon, April, Aubrey, Ritchie, Danny, Maddie, George, Brandon, and Zakary; and 9 Great-Grandchildren, Riley, Connor, Ethan, Trae, Autumn, Tristan, Callie, Sophia, and David. She is also survived by her brother Sam (Mooch) Heck, her sister Bonnie Messner, her sister-in-law Mary Elphick, and sister-in-law and brother-in-law Dianne and Bill Roberts. She was preceded in death by her son James Michael, who died as an infant, her spouse of 37 years Tom, who died in 2013, and her grandson Bryan Phillipi, who died in 2020.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations in Sandy’s honor to the Oakside Community Park in Biglerville, The Alzheimer’s Association, or the Humane Society of Somerset Co, PA.

A private burial will occur at a future date.
