San­dra Kath­leen ClarkeHer­rera

Jan 12, 1956 - Dec 17, 2017


Sandi was a long­time res­i­dent of San Fran­cisco. Af­ter a coura­geous bat­tle with can­cer, Sandi died peace­fully in her hus­band’s arms. Sandi’s car­ing heart and vi­brant spirit touched ev­ery­one she met.

Sandi was born in Santa Cruz, CA. She at­tended St. Lucy El­e­men­tary School in Camp­bell, Pre­sen­ta­tion High School in San Jose, and Los Al­tos High School in Los Al­tos.

Af­ter many years work­ing within the mu­sic in­dus­try, she found the love of her life, Fred­die. Fred­die and Sandi were mar­ried in Oc­to­ber 1986. They con­tin­ued their life to­gether in the “Rock and Roll” scene with the Key­stone Fam­ily and The Stone Night­club.

Sandi was pre­ceded in death by her brother, Ken. Sandi is sur­vived by her lov­ing hus­band Fred­die, de­voted stepchil­dren Jeanie (Mike), Paul, Joyce (Bill), grand­chil­dren Rachael, Ja­son, Lani, PJ, and great­grand­chil­dren Jay­den, Kaden, Bryce, El­liot. Sandi is sur­vived by her par­ents, Wil­bur and Betty Clarke of Los Al­tos, her sib­lings Mike (Mary), Bob (Michael), Elaine (Mark), Don (Debi), Bar­bara (Don), Mark (Me­gan) and many nieces and neph­ews.

Sandi was very spe­cial to her close-knit fam­ily and friends. Her con­ta­gious smile, her con­stant hugs, and her gift of danc­ing will be deeply missed.

Friends and Fam­ily are in­vited to a Rosary and Fu­neral Mass on De­cem­ber 29, 2017 at 10 am at St. Si­mon Catholic Church, 1860 Grant Road, Los Al­tos.

A Cel­e­bra­tion of Life will be held in San Fran­cisco at The Ital­ian Ath­letic Club with an ad­di­tional one held in Stock­ton, CA. De­tails are still be­ing fi­nal­ized.

In Lieu of flow­ers, the fam­ily is ask­ing for do­na­tions to the “Bass Cen­ter for Child­hood Can­cer and Blood Dis­eases”. Sandi was a ded­i­cated mem­ber of the San Fran­cisco Aux­il­iary for Chil­dren ben­e­fit­ing the Lu­cile Packard Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal Stan­ford.
