In Loving Memory

Nancy Sandhop

December 17, 1950 – January 4, 2021

Nancy "Nana" Sandhop

Nancy was a spry 70, a native of Houston, TX and a resident of League City. She was a graduate of Milby High School.

She passed away in the morning hours of January 4th, 2021. She is survived by her husband Fred Sandhop, her sons and daughter in laws; Corey, Eric and Sara, Ty and Amanda along with her 6 grandsons, 1 granddaughter, 2 great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, Polly and Jack Pry, and 2 sisters Joy, and Patsy.  

Known to most of us as "Nana", she was the grandmother that truly spoiled her family with the likes of homemade cookies, favorite cakes, pies, or if you were lucky enough Biscuits and Chocolate Syrup.  Introducing the boys to Buzz Aldrin, as well as getting them in to see NASA from a different perspective.  She was active in her community in support Dolphin and Turtle Rescue. She and the "Girlfriendz" were always engaged in some new way to lift up a function that raised awareness for Cancer treatments or research. Or any FUNction that would allow them to hoot, holler, have a few Margaritas, Hunch Punch, or wine. Helping raise funds and FUN for all that decided to get involved.  This included multiple 5k, 10k, and even walking half marathons, 

Having a spirit that loved to roam like the bear to see all the gifts of our maker, and the heart of a lion, she raised 3 sons that were largely the pride and joy of her life.  She did all that while also becoming a pilot and scuba diver

She was an Office manager through the 70's, 80's, 90's for several very successful Medical and dental practices.  However, her favorite position professionally was working at NASA.  Mom has always loved flying, aircraft and was even a trained single engine fixed wing pilot.  The adventure and challenge of working with such incredible scientists and astronauts thrilled her exceptional and acutely sharp mind.  Funeral services will be held at Jeter's Funeral Home in Friendswood Texas 23 January 2021 at 1000.

Memorial service will be held Saturday, January 23, 2021 at 10:00 A.M. at Jeter Memorial Funeral Home.

    Ms Nancy was my best friends mom. She and the whole family always treated me like their own. Some of my fondest memories have her and Ty and the gang in the center of my heart. I am lucky to have had her biscuits and chocolate syrup. I was blessed to know her and be loved by her. Much love to my adopted mom and family. Our prayer for all: Yahweh God give peace that passes understanding to the Seymour boys and their families and to the extended family. May she always be a memory away and may we be blest to be together again when our time here is through.

  2. I loved being around Nancy. She always had a smile on her face and liked having a good time. She raised an amazing family and she will be greatly missed. RIP

      Nancy was Precious, Kind and Loving. She was my Dads neighbor. She will be greatly missed in this world. May the God of peace Jesus Christ and with you all this difficult time.

      Love, Grace & Peace,
      The Matula Family 🌹🙏🏻🌹🙏🏻

  3. She was the most vivacious 70 year old you’ll ever know. Aunt Nancy and I hooked into each other 20 years ago and never let go.

    I remember I was working at NASA when Aunt Nancy came in for her interview so, we planned to have lunch that day. We no sooner got our food ordered and she was asking for hers to go…she had to run….she just heard that there was a dolphin being rescued in Galveston and by golly, there was no WAY she’d miss THAT! I remember her dedicating ALOT of time with that particular dolphin. She loved everything and everybody! Bless her heart!

    I recently had my own personal tragedy and had it not been for my friends and family, I don’t know how I would've made it through the day. But Aunt Nancy, she grabbed the seat on one side of me and she grabbed my arm and never let me go…..she loved everything and everybody. Bless her heart….from dolphins to humans (whether consoling an adult or nurturing an innocent baby…you were in the best of hands).

    God made a precious one in my Aunt Nancy and I guess He needed her back now. She’s not lost…she was on loan to us from the beginning.

    I’m going to have to find a way to take a tractor with me when I go, to back up all her crowns from the pearly gates so we can all join her again one day.

    I love you and I miss you every single day, Aunt Nancy.

    I first met Nancy at Milby High School in our sophomore year. We were chosen, Best Looking that year. She has remained beautiful, not just in looks, but in her life. After my career took me all over the states, we caught up again about 8 years ago. Leave it to Nancy to find my email and it was like we never were apart. I sincerely believe the saying that there are Angels on Earth that are disguised as people. Nancy is one of them. I last heard from her about six weeks ago and she was headed out for a "girls" weekend. I trust she had a wonderful time. This horrible virus is taking so many of our age group and I will miss Nancy, a true "Lady". I grieve for her and her family and pray God not only welcomed her home, but will comfort the family and friends of our wonderful friend, Nancy.

    Oh Sweet, Sweet Nancy… Loved and Cherished by All who had the Honor of being exposed to that Wonderful, Loving attitude of always wanting to help or to console, no matter the subject. Shock and a Heavy Heart is the only way to express my being when hearing of this loss, loss of a true friend. From her Stained-glass creations, to lunch on Wednesday's with the girls from work, always a great time.
    Prayers for Peace to Your Sons, their Wives, and all the Grandbabies.
    You Will Truly be Missed!!

    Our condolences to all of Nancy's family. We enjoyed her hugs and smiles and she was always a joy to be around. She will be missed but she left a great legacy in her family.

    That smile! Macy was ALWAYS upbeat and happy. We traveled together for years, trading off turns driving I must say she scared us at the approach to Muir Woods! Lead foot Nancy. She made mean martinis and kept any get together fun! She was the sister I chose and loved. October 2020 in Virginia mountains with Nancy will be the memories I will hold forever of my sweet friend gone too soon. I love her kids and spouses. She was proud of her family.

  8. I met Nancy many years ago. I’ll never forget the first Christmas I was without my family, she made me a chocolate martini…that led to many years of her accepting me as part of her family. I love y’all and always will.

    Nancy was one of my best friends and she is truly missed. We have had so much fun together, from trips to Corpus Christi (almost 20 years ago), to our mountain trip in Virginia this past October, she was a fearless spirit who was always smiling and kept us laughing. Her positive attitude was contagious, and her giving spirit and thoughtfulness as my friend was very much appreciated. She may have been the oldest of our girlfriend group but she definitely was the one with the most spirit and energy. Love and miss her terribly.

  10. Nancy was a dear friend and a joy to work with at NASA. Her warmth and sweet demeanor overflowed to all those around her. I will miss her lunchtime sage advice and infectious laughter. Nancy always bragged about her "boys" and their families. My prayers go out to all of you, especially her family.

  11. I was so sorry to hear about Nancy’s passing. She was such a nice person to work with over the years at JSC, her passion and dedication for her work was evident every day. She was always enthusiastic and her laughter was infectious. Nancy will be greatly missed by all and my thoughts and prayers go out to Fred and the rest of her family.

  12. Nancy was one the most fun persons you could have known. I am glad I had the privilege of knowing her and her family. We played golf together a few years back and had a blast. I have a lot of memories of her and she was always smiling and having a good time. She will missed but the the good Lord has a good angel to help him. Will watch services online. Pete Russo
