Sandy Jennifer Rice, 43, of Crossett, passed away on February 26, 2020, at the Baptist Health Medical Center in Conway.
She was born on July 8, 1976, in Longview, Texas, to her parents, Mark and Vicki Smith Trammell.
Sandy was a 1994 graduate of Crossett High School. She had a talent for gardening and enjoyed tending to her flowers. She enjoyed spending time at the river camp, deer hunting, playing with her dogs, and being outdoors.
Through the years she worked at Baker’s Pharmacy, Jr. Meeks Chevrolet, Area Agency on Aging Home Health, and most recently, Drew Memorial Hospital as the patient access manager. Her internal drive and strong work ethic made her the most dedicated and hardworking employee in every job. Despite being sick, she continued to work and even on her most difficult days. She had a smile that never faded and that could light up an entire room.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Bobby and Cornelia Smith, and Chester and Scottie Trammell; and her mother-in-law, Sandra Rice.
She is survived by her husband of 23 years, Timmy Rice; one son, Luke Rice (Cassie Tyler); parents, Mark and Vicki Trammell; father-in-law, Ronald Rice (Earlene); and one sister-in-law, Karen Harrington; all of Crossett; along with a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 1, at Medders Funeral Home Chapel, 1564 Hwy 52 W, in Crossett with Bro. Lyle Hern officiating. A private interment at Carter Cemetery will be at a later date.
Visitation will be from 5:00-7:00 p.m., Saturday, February 29, at Medders Funeral Home.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Prairie Benefit Trail Ride in her honor.
