Sandra Kay Mack

Sandra Kay Mack, 72, passed away at Windber Woods on Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019.

The daughter of the late Charles F. and Marilyn (McClintock) Mack, she was born on Sept. 26, 1947, in Johnstown.

Sandra received her bachelor’s degree at Indiana University of Pennsylvania and was a math teacher at United School District for 10 years.

After working as a paramedic in her spare time, she wanted to enter the medical field. This led to her attending Hahnemann Medical School, where she received a master’s degree and became a physician’s assistant. She held the role of director of the Physician’s Assistant program at Saint Francis University for many years.

Sandra was a devout member of Armagh United Methodist Church, where she led and contributed on many committees, acted as a lay leader, taught Sunday school and sang in the choir. Always one to help others in any way she could, Sandy shared her love of God on a mission trip to Paraguay.

She also served her community by acting as mayor of Armagh for a number of years and was a member of the United School Board. Sandy enjoyed attending United football games and watching her nieces and nephews participate in sports, dance and theater. An avid Steelers and Pirates fan, she loved taking part in the family football poll. Sandra always had a smile and words of encouragement for everyone she encountered.

She and her mother were “partners in crime,” spending most of their days together; seeing one meant the other wasn’t far behind. Sandy was loved by all.

She is survived by sisters Sharon (Ken) Billotte and Vickie (Colin) Respet; nieces and nephews including Charles Mack II, Troy Mack Sr., Kristie (Chris) Perrone, Keith (Kira) Respet and Brandi Billotte; great-nieces and -nephews Trinity Burda, Taylor Mack (Travis Gabelli), Troy Mack Jr., Tressa Mack, Delaney Perrone, Layla Billotte and Sidney Dietz, and Alana and Quinn Respet; great-great-nieces Mia and Mya Gabelli; sister-in-law V. Sue Mack; special cousin Larry, who brightened her day on all his visits; and numerous other cousins. Finally, she leaves behind her furry “daughter,” Precious.

In addition to her parents, Sandra was preceded in death by her brother, Chuck.

Friends will be received from 2 to 8 p.m. Monday at Richard C. Stuart Funeral Home, 392 E. Philadelphia St., Armagh, and from 10 a.m. until the time of the service at 11 a.m. Tuesday at Armagh United Methodist Church, 570 W. Philadelphia St. Ext., Armagh, with Pastor Jim Miller officiating. Interment will follow at Armagh Cemetery.
