Sandra Grace Brooks went to the light on May 25, 2023. She passed peacefully with family and her team by her side after a yearlong journey with pancreatic cancer. Sandra Grace was born to Lt Col Winston Scott Brooks and Marcella Jorgina Brooks in Heidelberg, Germany on a US Army base.
Sandra Grace was a lifelong learner who dedicated herself to studying alternative healing modalities. She was beloved by her many friends and clients, assisting many lives through her transformative work and cutting-edge techniques. Her eye for beauty and detail were expressed in many ways including hanging wall paper, interior design and hotel management. She lived a life full of inspiration, beauty and kindness. Always one to try new things and see new places, she was an avid explorer and adventurer. Driving the Blue Ridge Parkway was one of her favorite pastimes.
She is survived by her life partner Ray Grover and her son William Gerald Chaplain II "Jason". She is also survived by her sister Karen Lynn Green and her family, and the members of the Grover family, including Ray's son, Tim Grover and adored family members, Nathaniel, Forrest, Logan and Myah, as well as Ray's daughter, Kim, her husband, Ian, and their daughter, Isla Georgiann. She leaves to cherish her memory devoted friends, clients and caregivers, especially Dr. Charlene Hudson.
A celebration of life will be at a later date this year. In lieu of flowers please make a contribution to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network at www.pancan.org. Condolences may be offered at www.vacremationsociety.com. Published by The Virginian-Pilot on Jun. 4, 2023.
