Obituary for Sandra "Sandy" Dorer

Sandra "Sandy" Dorer
LAKELAND - Sandra “Sandy” L. Dorer, 72, passed away at Lakeland Regional Medical Center after a long courageous battle with cancer on Tuesday, August 25, 2015, surrounded by her children. 'On the wings of a snow Angel Mommy flew away in the snow to a far better place today.'

Sandy was born in San Antonio, TX and has been a resident of Lakeland since 2004, coming from Coldwater, MI. She was a secretary for the State of Michigan for over thirty years and a member of St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Lakeland. Sandy was an avid reader and she loved to volunteer for cancer fund raising events. Her pets, Patches, Molly, Spike, Gizmo, and Lilly, meant the world to her.

She is survived by two sons, Brian Dorer of Winter Haven, FL and Steven Dorer (Midnight) of Lakeland, FL; daughter, Christy Dorer of Estero, FL; two brothers, Terry Rickerman (Shirley) of Lehigh Acres, FL and Rick Rickerman (Mary Ann) of Knoxville, TN; granddaughter, Olyvia Dorer; three adopted grandchildren, David, Sheena, and Jolina, and dear friends LJ, Nanci, Jeri and Carolyn. She is pre-deceased by her parents, Harold and Ruth Rickerman.

She was a loving mother, daughter, sister, and friend who will be greatly missed by those who were fortunate to know her. May she rest in peace in the loving arms of our Father. An earlier funeral service and cremation took place in Lakeland, FL. On Wednesday, September 23 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., a gathering of family and friends will take place at Dutcher Funeral Home, 440 W. Chicago Street, Coldwater, followed by a memorial service at 7:00 p.m. She will be laid to rest with her mom and dad at Hillcrest Memorial Park in Jackson, MI.

It is never goodbye, only see you later. See you later, mom!

Memorials may be made to the St. Jude Children's Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place Memphis, TN 38105.
