Mrs. Sandra Leigh McAninch Osborne Moses, formerly of Erie, Pa., died Sunday, March 20, 2016, at her residence.

She was born Nov. 12, 1946, in Brookville, Pa., to the late Raymond G. and Anna L. Berti McAninch. She worked for several companies in the printing industry over the years, including Jostens where she worked in customer service, helping to produce many high school yearbooks. She graduated from the former St. Benedict Academy in 1964. Her most prized possessions were her family and the time she spent with her sons, grandkids, her flowers and her ducks. She enjoyed watching Nolan wrestle and Wednesday afternoon bike rides with Ian. Sunday afternoons, while the family gathered to watch the races with her husband, were among her favorite times. She was overjoyed to welcome her new grandson, Nathaniel, born Feb. 7. She enjoyed the outdoors, maintaining landscaping, and riding the “mule” back in the woods with kids. Sandy was every bit about her family and friends. She was the glue that held her family together, especially since the passing of her mom in 2011. She was a reader, and since retiring from work life had taken up, quilting, yoga and gardening. Although not a regular attendee, she considered herself a member of the Salvation Army where her mother took her as a little girl to church.

She was preceded in death by a brother, Gary, in 2004.
