Sandra “Sandi” Anne (Sells) Meyers, age 71, of Branson, Missouri, passed away Friday, January 17, 2020. She entered this life September 29, 1948, in Helena, Arkansas, the daughter of Rex and Margaret (Nugent) Sells. Sandi was joined in marriage August 27, 1983, to Robert “Bob” Meyers. Arrangements and cremation are under the direction of Cremations of the Ozarks.
Early in life, Sandi’s world was all about figure skating. This was her passion for many years. She met many close friends who stayed with her for a lifetime, especially her best friend and fellow skater, Peggy. Sandi was a very spiritual, sensitive and caring person who helped others. She met Bob in Colorado Springs, who became her husband and lifelong love. Sandi continued teaching skating in Vail until she and Bob eventually moved to Dallas, where she was a senior instructor. They later moved to Fairfax, Virginia, where Sandi met many wonderful and lifelong friends. This was when her life changed with the battle of cancer.
Although this changed her life, she never let it ruin her. With all it brought, she lived with it and loved her life, even though it changed what she loved to do, skating. In 2014, Sandi and Bob moved to Branson, where they spent six wonderful years. Cancer came back, and this time it was not curable. She fought hard, but this time, it could not be stopped.
One of Sandi’s favorite activities was listening to Bob play the guitar for her. She and Bob were joined at the hip on a daily basis. They went thrift shopping, Walmart grocery shopping, and eating out 5-6 days a week. The only time they were not together was when Bob played golf or was performing with his guitar. Sandi pursued many hobbies during her life: painting, doing mosaics, reading romance novels, feeding the birds, and going to the Rec-Plex in Branson. Sandi’s happiest memories were with Bob and the life they shared together.
Sandi was an amazing and wonderful person who endured so much later in her lifetime, yet always stayed positive and spiritual. To Trudi, she was a sister, second mom, and best friend. Sandi was always there with positive words, guidance and lots of love. There is an empty spot in her husband Bob’s heart as she was truly his soulmate and love of his life. Sandi touched many lives and hearts over the years and there will be smiles brought to their faces at the memory of Sandi. She will be greatly missed. Sandi may be gone from this Earth, but she lives forever in the hearts of those she loved.
Sandi is survived by her loving husband, the love of her life and soulmate, Bob Meyers; sister and best friend, Trudi Sells of Texas; brother, Rex Sells and wife Connie of Texas; niece, Grace Lee; and nephew, Cameron and wife Jackie; aunt, Myra Nugent; cousins, Jeremy and Michael Haworth and Michael Nugent.
She was preceded in death by her parents; aunts, Mary Haworth and husband Pete and Trudie Nugent; and uncles, Frank Nugent Jr, Tommy Nugent Jr. and his daughter Mary Anne.
A celebration of life will be held 11:00 a.m. Saturday, March 14, 2020, at the Historic Hollister Train Depot, Hollister, Missouri.
