Sandra Sue Tow, 80, passed away on July 13, 2020, at Regency House in San Angelo, Texas, from complications of COVID-19.

Born on November 29, 1939 in Colorado City, Texas, Sandra was the only daughter of the late Lillian F. & J.C. "Pete" Barkley. She grew up on the family farm in Colorado City, where she had many great friends and adventures and where she graduated from the local high school.

Sandra's pride and joy were her two sons, James F. "Frank" Self and Mark E. Self and her 4 grandchildren. She loved travel and was able to visit much of the United States, plus Venezuela and Oman, to visit family. She was the #1 fan of the Texas Longhorns Football Team and believed in cheering loudly for them. Her friends will remember her as having a big personality and laugh, enjoying her friends and family and loving sparkly clothing and jewelry.

Sandra was a hard worker and worked in a variety of jobs, but her favorite job was as a secretary at Otis Engineering in Graham, Texas, where she met her late husband, Gaylon Tow. They were married on September 2, 1983, in Graham, Texas. She enjoyed volunteering at her church and was a member of the Shannon Hospital Auxiliary, in San Angelo, in later years.

She is survived by her son Mark and his wife Karrie Self, her late-son Frank's wife Beth Self, grandchildren Kylee and Ty Self and Carl and Trevor Self, sister-in-laws Pam Barkley and Evelyn Barkley, niece Cissy and her husband Scott Mattingly and niece Shawna and her husband Mazy Razzaz and her great nephew Artan Razzaz.

In addition to her parents, husband Gaylon and son Frank, Sandra was predeceased by her brothers Benny Barkley and Jerry Barkley.

Sandra will join her beloved husband Gaylon Tow, a United States Army Veteran, at Lawnhaven Cemetery, in San Angelo, Texas. Services to be arranged at a later time. Arrangements are by Shaffer Funeral Home/ Sherwood Way. The family request in lieu of flowers that donations be made in Sandra's name to the West Texas Boys Ranch or The American Cancer Society.

Last time I visited Sandy was Easter 2019. My dear friend Mike Blaylock was across the hall from Sandy. I had taken Sandy and Hazel a chocolate bunny. Sandy was very concerned about Mike. The following day, we lost Mike and Sandy wanted me to make sure the family knew how much she cared for Mike.
Sandy was my neighbor at Christian village. I knew hr when she was still driving, enjoying life. I , and all of us were so proud of Sandy when she quit smoking. She did it on her own and she let us all know it.
Sandy loved Texas, the Cowboys, the Longhorns. During college football season we all had our team flags displayed on our doors. I being a WVA alumni and fan and also a Steelers fan was sometimes more than Sandy could tolerate.
Sandy loved her family. She talked about Gareth and how she missed him. Sandy had quite the collection o crosses and proudly told us where and from whom she has gotten them.
Sandy was all feminine, she loved to dress up, jewelry to match. Sometimes she put us all to shame. she loved to get her hair poofed, her toes and nails done. I told her one time her hair reminded me of one of my friends (Ann Richards).
She made her mark here on this planet, I am certain she and Galen are together. That is what she wanted.
Glo bless Sandy and her family.
