Obituary of Sandra Loop-Houck
Our mom, Sandra Lee Loop-Houck, age 72, died on the day she would have celebrated her own mother’s birth. On the early morning of February 28, 2020, she finished her long battle with Parkinson’s and took her last breath at home with her husband, Fred Houck of eight years (married 9-10-11) and took her first breath in Heaven.
Even though our mother did not have a choice in whether or not she had Parkinson’s, the choices she could make were so beautiful: gardening, traveling, reading, attending church, visiting friends, laughing, loving her children and grandchildren all with her loving husband Fred by her side.
She was born to Lucille (Osterhout) and Archie Cornell on September 1, 1947 in Swanton, Ohio. She was the oldest of seven beautiful siblings Charlie Cornell, Irene Vandiver, Thomas Cornell, Mark Cornell, Martha Browning, and Wanda Flory. On November 18, 1967, Sandra married William N. Loop. They had 41 loving and meaningful years, He preceded her in death on their anniversary Nov. 18, 2008.
