Port Henry

Sandra Lux Bigelow or Sandy to all, departed us all way too early on Saturday, July 15th in Middlebury, Vermont. She was born on December 16th, 1964 in New Braunfels, Texas to Benno Lux and Mary Ann Preiss.

Sandy grew up in Bulverde, TX on the family farm. The farm life lived through her veins throughout her entire life. After she went through grade school in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, she moved back down to the farm.

Friends and family meant the world to Sandy. In her younger years, Sandy participated in the local bowling and softball leagues. She also played a mad game of pool at the Iron Skillet. Her summers were filled with family reunions all across Texas and the holidays would be split between the different family branches. After giving birth to her son Michael, Sandy began her long and successful career in education. By the time she left Texas, Sandy worked at most of the schools in western Comal County. When she worked at the high school, her room would be the kid hangout prior to school.

Sandy’s amazing life was not without it’s tragedies. Sandy endured as she devoted her love and support to her brother’s, mother’s, and stepfather’s courageous battles of cancer. In 2010, she became a young widow when her husband Rick passed away. With all these challenges she grew stronger.

In 2015, Sandy shocked everyone by leaving Texas and moved to the Northeast. The last eight years of Sandy’s life were full of joy and happiness. She grew the family by marrying her last love, Blake. With Blake by her side, Sandy travelled across the U.S. showing Blake the America he never imagined.

Sandy instantly became the matriarch of the newly expanded family. She brought in Blake’s children Jennifer, Alyssa, Michael, and Blake as her own.

Sandy’s last title in life was her most cherished, Grandma. She would travel night and day no matter where in the world to get to her little munchkin. She could not wait for her second munchkin baking in the oven.

Sandy was the most beautiful soul God ever made. Everyone who met Sandy was touched by her. She will surely be missed by all who knew her.

She is survived by her husband, Blakley Bigelow of Port Henry, her father and stepmother Benno and Glenda Lux of Burleson, TX, children Michael Halleran (Jessica) of Fort Gordon, GA, Jennifer Bigelow Leavitt (Brian) of Benson, NC, Alyssa Whitford of Moriah, Michael Bigelow (Savannah) of Port Henry, Blake Bigelow of Port Henry and brother David Lux of Grapevine, TX.

Sandy was preceded in death by her husband, Ricky Lee Huff, her mother and stepfather, Mary Ann and Lyndal Ryder and brother Michael Lux.

The viewing and services will occur at the Harland Funeral Home on Wednesday, July 19th beginning at 5pm and 6pm. Following the services there will be a Celebration of Life at the Port Henry Knights of Columbus Hall.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
