Obituary for Sandra Lee Nowell (Thomas)

Sandra Nowell, age 74, of Newark, DE, passed away peacefully on August 16, 2022.

Sandy was born on May 30, 1948, in Wilmington DE to Willis and Beatrice Thomas. On September 12, 1970, Sandy married Andrew (Bucky) Nowell and raised two children, Tara and Jeffrey. In addition to the many years she spent working at DuPont, Sandy appreciated her time at home with her children.

Her lifetime hobbies included reading, writing, going to the beach, and cheering on the Flyers. More than anything, Sandy enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and planning her holiday parties.

Sandra will be dearly missed by her daughter, Tara Neylon, and her husband, Mike Neylon; son, Jeffrey Nowell and his wife, Jessica Nowell; and grandchildren Abigail, Andrew, Sadie, and Sophia. She is also survived by her brother, David Thomas, his wife, Sharon Thomas, and numerous nieces and nephews.

The family would like to express their gratitude to Bayada Hospice, her many caregivers, and Complete Care at Brackenville for their continued care.
