Otis Ann “Sandi” Newcomb was born in Muskogee, on April 28, 1943, to James Otis “Dusty” May and Grace Joy (Rogers) May. She passed from this life on Monday, Feb. 17, in Tahlequah, at age 70.

At the young age of fourteen, Sandi eloped to Miami with Charles Newcomb. On Dec. 27, 1957, they married and shared 56 wonderful years together. Marriage did not stop Sandi from attending school and graduating in 1961, with honors from Pryor High School. She would also be raising her first child at that time.

She worked in the banking business for 30 years, and enjoyed helping the elderly with their banking needs. Sandi loved her family, and enjoyed spending time with them and supporting them with their fun hobbies.

Sandi is preceded in death by her parents, Dusty and Grace May; and a great grandson.

She is survived by her husband, Charles of the home; three children, Chuck Newcomb Jr. and wife June of Colorado Springs, Colo., Gary Newcomb and wife Karen of Westminister, Colo., and Michelle Armstrong and fiancé, Dee Bell of Tahlequah; 12 grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren. She was loved dearly and will be missed by all those who knew her.
