She was born Sandra Kay Slayton on September 8, 1943, at the Overall Morris Hospital in Coleman to G.J. Slayton and Gladys Keeney Slayton.  She grew up in Coleman and attended Coleman High School.

To know Sandra was to love her.  Her bright eyes, smile, and big personality will always be remembered.  Sandra was an avid reader and could read 10 to 15 books a week.  She also enjoyed yardwork and playing games.  Sandra had a competitive streak in her when it came to playing games.  She was the first winner of the forty-two contest at the Cattle Drive Café, which she bragged about immensely.  Sandra loved her family and friends.  Her most cherished times were spent with her children, grandchildren, and her great-grandchildren.  She loved them all and was proud of their accomplishments.  She leaves an amazing legacy for her family to live by.

Preceding Sandra in death are her parents, G.J. and Gladys Slayton; her husband, Eddie “Bo” Wilson; two brothers, Kemp Slayton and G.W. Slayton; and three sisters, Louise Strength, Fredna Horton, and Irene Matthews.

She is survived by her children, Mindy Casey and significant other Dennis of Coleman, Randell Casey and wife Holly of Round Rock, Johnnie Casey and wife Tammy of Coleman, and Christy Gunter and husband Rollin of Rockwood; three step children, Leslie “Tiger” Wilson of Coleman County, Sherry VanPelt and husband John of Talala, Oklahoma, and Debra Urban and husband Allen of Coleman County; two sisters, Frances Smith of Lohn, and Delores Fenton of Johnson City; 15 grandchildren; numerous great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren.
