Sandra Lynne Draper

August 31, 1963 — October 24, 2021

Sandra “Sandee” Lynne Draper, 58, passed away on October 24, 2021 in her home in Farmville, Virginia, in the arms of her husband and son. Sandee was born on August 31, 1963 in Annapolis, Maryland to Bruce and Elizabeth Joy Henry. She graduated from Severna Park High School in 1981. On December 18, 1987, she married the love of her life Raymond E. Draper. They soon had two children Jessica and RJ, who are the light of her life.

In January 1996, Sandee and Ray moved to their family farm in Farmville, Virginia. Sandee worked at Prince Edward County Public Schools as a teacher assistant for many years, where her passion for education and serving her community grew. Wanting to make a bigger impact, she earned her Bachelors of Education from Old Dominion University and became a Special Education Teacher at Prince Edward County High School. She spent the last years of her life dedicated to her students, community, and family. From running concession stands on Friday night to raise money for her special education program to coaching her Medford Basketball team, Sandee poured her heart into her work and touched the lives of many.

Sandee was survived by her husband, Ray, children, Jessica and RJ Draper, three grandchildren, Kinsley, Grayson, and Kamden, cousins, Debbie and Tracey, nieces and nephews, other family members, and hundreds of friends, students, and colleagues. She was preceded in death by her father mother, Bruce and Joy, and her uncle, Bill Henry. Sandee’s love will continue to live on in our hearts forever.

“So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.” John 16:22
