Obituary of Sabina Sandoval Valenzuela

Sabina, 90, passed on to her eternal rest on January 21, 2021 at Banner UMC. Named after her maternal grandmother, she was born to Paula (nee Perez) and Raphael Sandoval in Barrio Viejo. She graduated from THS in 1948 and retired from the City of Tucson in 1989. She is preceded in death by her parents; brother, Ralph; sister, Jane; and daughter, Valerie. She is survived by her granddaughter Aida DeJonghe and her husband Michael; brothers, Peter and Nico; and many nieces and nephews of the Sandoval and Valenzuela families. Throughout her life, Sabina had a deep love of the Lord and was an active member in Catholic prayer groups and organizations. Through these devotions, she built lasting friendships. Sabina would say that her greatest accomplishments were becoming a loving mother to Valerie and Nana to Aida.  The memories and lessons she shared will live on with the family and friends she has left behind.
