Sandra Lowery Creft was born June 6, 1960 to Joann Parsons Lowrey and the late John Robert Lowery. She was reared by Willie and the late, Joyce Townsend. Sandra attended High Point Public Schools and graduated in 1978.
Sandra was a lifetime member of Gethsemane Baptist Church. Sandra loved music from an early age and sang with the Beginners and Junior Choirs, as well as the Ray McCluney Voices of Praise. She worked for numerous years in customer service and retail stores and retired from Target in 2021.
Sandra was a loving, kind and generous person. Her smile was infectious, and she was a “low-key” comedian. She knew Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior and her faith was strong, even to the end. Her sisters called her “The Prayer Warrior” and always called on her to pray at the family functions. Sandra was a friend to many and would help anyone in need. She kept a positive attitude and always had an encouraging word. We will never forget some of the words she would use to make sure we understood our assignments. She would tell us to “Pray about it because prayer goes where you can’t,” “Don’t take in other's garbage” and “Garbage In/Garbage Out.”
Sandra was a devoted wife, a dedicated mother, a beautiful daughter and an awesome sister. She was married to Daniel L. Creft Sr. for 40-plus years and had four lovely children: Chaviet (Jennifer) Lowery, Daniel L. Creft Jr., Brittany Creft and Marlon (Tracy) Creft. Sandra was a grandmother to eleven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. She leaves others to cherish her memories, her siblings, Yolanda Townsend, Bernetta Townsend, Debra (William) Dawkins, Mildred Lowery, Helen Lowery, Ann Lowery, John Wayne Lowery and John Lowery. She has joined the heavenly ranks with three siblings: Hazel Lowery, James Lowery and Duron Lowery. Her two sisters-in-law, Anita (Paul) Holmes, Penny Hudson and her two brothers-in-law, George Creft, Herbert (Lisa) Medlin. A host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, neighbors and church members. Sandra will be truly missed by her family and all who knew and adored her.
