November 30, 1953 ~ March 3, 2023

Born in: Atlanta, Georgia
Resided in: Snellville, Georgia

Mrs. Sandy Denese Drummond, age 69, of Snellville, Georgia passed away on Friday, March 3, 2023. Sandy was born on November 30, 1953 in Atlanta, Georiga, daughter to the late Junior Lee and Ruby Esta Haney Hewatt.

Sandy was a woman of steadfast faith in The Lord and unconditional love for her family. Her kind heart and selfless nature mirrored that of a Proverbs 31 virtuous lady. A faithful member of Lenora Baptist Church, Sandy taught Sunday School every week and sang in the church choir. She was the epitome of what a perfect mother should be raising three boys and matching their energy from the beginning. There was no limit to the activities she would participate in with her boys, even if that meant riding a skateboard or being the ‘neighborhood mama’.  Sandy was an extraordinary mother, devoted wife, wonderful grandmother, and an exceptional friend; she will most certainly be missed by all who knew and loved her.

Along with parents Sandy preceded in death by her brother Michael L. Hewatt.

She is survived by her husband, James D. Drummond; sons, J. Douglas Drummond and Jose R. Montenegro of Houston, Texas, Terry W. Drummond of Decatur, and Jesse C. and Stephanie D. Drummond of Lawrenceville; granddaughters, Scarlett and Sadie-Lynn; siblings, Ronnie Spain of Stone Mountain and Teresa D. and Bobby Wade of Good Hope; sister-in-law, Dee Hewatt of Stone Mountain, and Diane and Andy Holder of Eatonton; aunt, Annette and Paul Slaughter of Stone Mountain; and several nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family members and friends also survive.

Terry Briscoe and Rev. Jesse Drummond officiating. Interment will follow in the Lenora Baptist Church Cemetery of Snellville, Georgia.
