Sandra Faye Baylock was born to Alexander Blake and the late Olga Toomer. Sandra, the first of ten children was born on March 31, 1943 in the Republic of Panama. She lived in the Panama Canal Zone town of Gamboa before moving to Berlin with her parents in December, 1954.
Sandy’s elementary education was completed at Assumption Elementary School in Atco, NJ and she went on to graduate from Edgewood Regional High School, class of 1961.
Sandy married Kenneth R. Baylock on September 11, 1965 and from this union were born two wonderful children.
Sandy worked at several jobs; however, the job that she enjoyed the most was her employment as a teacher’s aide with the Willingboro Public School System. Sandy loved working for the school district as it gave her the opportunity to interact with the children. Working with the children seemed to give Sandy a sense of joy and fulfillment.
Sandy’s greatest love was her children and grand children. She represented to them patience, understanding and unrequited love. She absolutely adored them and they meant everything to her. Her children and grand children are blessed in a very special way to have a mother and grand mother who loved them so profoundly. She talked and bragged about them all the time. She often said that her greatest wish was to see all of her grand children become successful adults.
Sandy kept busy with her avocations which included the collection of antiques, jewelry, picture frames, and family photos. She enjoyed browsing in antique shops, decorating her home, spending time with family, and simply having a cup of tea. Above all, Sandy was most fulfilled by unconditionally giving her care and kindness to the people that she loved.
Sandy’s life long journey ended on the evening of December 22, 2018. She leaves to cherish her memories: husband, Kenneth; children: Kim Mitchell (Emanuel, Jr.) and Todd Baylock (Danielle): grand children: Jazmyne Mitchell, Tenasia Baylock, Emanuel Mitchell, III, Angel Mitchell, Sahnti Helton-Bell, Emeril Mitchell, Mim Baylock, Todd Baylock, Jr. and Simone Baylock; ex-daughter-in-law Patience Baylock; siblings: Barbara Bullock, Pamela Judah, Cornelius Toomer (Bonnie), Deborah Brown, Denise Covington (Kyle), Shawn Deangles (Massimo), Dorene Toomer, Antoinette Schwartz (James, Jr.) Enrique Toomer, Alexander, Jr. and Russell Blake, Maritza Beckford, Carol Blake and Constancia Blake; aunt Edna Edwards, a host of nieces and nephews and her furry friend, Pebble.
