OCEAN RIDGE, Fla. —Sandra Lois Cropper, 72, of Ocean Ridge, Fla., and Ocean City, passed away Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2012, at Hospice by the Sea in Boca Raton, Fla., after a courageous battle with ovarian cancer. Born in Midland City, Ala., she was the daughter of the late Bailey Snellgrove and Margaret Snellgrove.
She is survived by her loving husband, Reese F. Cropper Jr.; two sons, Lawrence Jeffery Nyce of North Potomac, Md., and Robert Todd Offenbacher and his wife, Tara, of Southern Lake Tahoe, Calif.; two grandchildren, Lawrence Todd Nyce and Olive Dakota Offenbacher; a sister, Sue Adams of Eufaula, Ala.; a brother, Robert Snellgrove and his wife, Dixie, of Pensacola, Fla.; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. In addition, there are two step-granddaughters that Mrs. Cropper considered her own, Taylor Clark and Jordan Clark. Also large part of Sandy’s life are two stepdaughters, Kimberly Clark Czajkowski and Amy L. Cropper.
Mrs. Cropper was a member of the Dunes Club of Ocean City and a member of the board of directors for Meyers Siding Condo. She was the co-founder, with her former husband, Karl, of Offenbacher Pool & Patio, a chain of outdoor furniture stores in the Washington, D.C. area.
She will be fondly remembered as a loving and giving person to others. Her magnetic personality made her an instant friend to anyone she met. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her and loved her. We are all better to have had her in our lives.
Mrs. Cropper requested her remains be cremated and appropriate services will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a donation in her memory may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, Tenn. 38105, her favorite charity, or Hospice by the Sea, Inc., 1531 W.
