Sandra Marie Sonnier Kane Britto
Sandra Marie Sonnier Kane Britto, 65, of Texas City, Texas passed away on Monday July 15, 2019 at UTMB Clear Lake. Sandra was born in Texas City on October 3, 1953 to Verona and Leroy Sonnier. Sandra attended Texas City schools starting at Northside Elementary and graduating from Texas City High School in 1972. She spent most of her life in Texas City, moving to Palestine and Plano Texas for a brief time but always returned home to Texas City.
After raising her sons, she went to work for The Texas City Sun selling subscriptions then moving up to retail advertising sales, this began a love for the newspaper business and she soon went to work at The Galveston County Daily News in the classified advertising department.
She then moved to Palestine and worked for The Palestine Herald Press and was promoted to classified advertising manager. After her Mother became ill she then moved back home to Texas City and began working for The Pasadena Citizen, but sadly her health began to fail her while working at The Citizen and she had to retire.
Sandra enjoyed going to the casinos to play the slots and loved to dance and was very proud of her Cajun heritage and loved Cajun music. Sandra wasn’t able to get out much in recent years so through Facebook she was able to reconnect with family members she had lost touch with over the years, dear friends from her old Moses Lake neighborhood she grew up in, friends from school and many of her past coworkers. She also made new friends and loved making funny Cajun Memes on a Cajun site online and really got a kick that so many people liked and commented on them, she had a great sense of humor.
Sandra is preceded in death by her brother, Johnny Sonnier; parents; beloved son, Grady Kane, and Mike Kane, the father of her children.
She is survived by sisters, Sherry Fewell and husband Larry of Spring, Liz Plain and husband Randy of Texas City; son, Everett Kane and wife Rita of New Orleans; grandchildren, Kristyn Kane Blinnbrown and husband Nicholas of Honolulu Hawaii, Cory Kane & partner Victoria of La Marque; nieces & nephews, Tracy Walker of Tyler, Tim Walker & wife Carla of Texas City, Kelsie Plain & Carlie Plain of Texas City, John (JJ) Kane and Mikel Kane of Texas City, Robert Kane Jr. of Texas City, Diane Kane Sedillo of Florida and Karena Kane of Omega Bay; numerous great & great-great nieces and nephews, many cousins and aunt Murel Sonnier of Orange, Texas and her very dear friend, Brenda Kane Miller of Texas City.
