Rockport — Sandra Richards Hall, 83, passed away Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018, at Sussman House in Rockport. Born in Camden July 5, 1935, she was the daughter of Louise and Paul Jones.

She was a 1952 graduate of Union High School. She married her husband, James Hall, July 5, 1953, and they were married for 60 years.

For almost 30 years, she worked with children with special needs at the Henderson School, South School in Rockland and the Life Skills Program.

Sandy’s passion in life was her five children and their families. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and teacher of children with special needs. During her teaching years and beyond, she participated in many winter and summer Special Olympics Games. The faculty and students considered her “the most enthusiastic coach ever.” In 2006, the year she retired, she was named the Number 1 coach on the student athlete plaque. On their annual Hurricane Island trip in May, she led the group jumping into the ocean. Sandy also enjoyed participating in whitewater rafting trips with her “kids.”

Sandy was a devoted mother to her children; Timothy and Mary Hall of Northport, Marcia and Rich Roberts of Lincolnville, Peter and Lisa Hall of Thomaston, Jeffery and Linda Hall of Warren and Laurie and Marty Richard of Texas. She dearly cherished her grandchildren, Kate Hall, Shannan Hall, Shean Hall, Ben and Lisa Spooner, Abby and Carm Ferrante, Ryan and Lacy Hall, Tyler and Susan Hall, Heather Hall and Charles Fracchia, Taylor Hall, John Hall, JJ Dennis and Samantha Jennings; and great-grandchildren Adilyn, Maizey, Sydney, Ava, Wyatt and Juniper.

Sandy was predeceased by Jim Hall, her loving and devoted husband; she is survived by a brother, Victor Richards.

A private celebration of her life will be held at the convenience of the family.
