June 27, 1942 - November 1, 2021
Sandra (Sandy) Eve Alter, at the age of 79, went home to be with The Lord on Monday, November 1st with her family by her side. She was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado on June 27, 1942 to the late Alven Lavern Thorsten and Lillian Violet Thorsten (Ott). She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Gerald (Jerry) Alter. She is survived by her two sons, Gerald "Jay" Alter (Kimberly) and David Alter. She is also survived by her 10 grandchildren, Caela, Natasha, Kyle, Jessica, Cody, Ashlie, Kristina, Thaddeus, Rayce, Kadi Rae, and one great-grandchild, Laila Rose. She also is survived by her very special cousin and “sister,” Karen Sharifi as well as her dearest kitties “Daisy Mae and Puddy Pie.” Sandy grew up in Kane, Pennsylvania, spent her adult years in the Mechanicsburg area, and her latter years in Perry County. Among her positions as school librarian and church secretary, she was proud to have serviced the government through her work at the Pentagon, where she also met her best friend and husband, Jerry, of 54 years. Sandy loved being “Grandma” and was absolutely adored by each of her grandchildren. Throughout her life, she enjoyed family activities such as traveling, tennis, hiking, camping and annual trips to Myrtle Beach. She was a faithful servant of Jesus which was evident to all she knew by her sweetness, warmth, generosity and loving personality. She was a member of the New Bloomfield United Methodist Church. A memorial service will be held at 1 PM on Monday, November 8, 2021 in the New Bloomfield United Church. A visitation will be held one hour prior to the service. Memorial contributions may be made to The Humane Society of Harrisburg, 7790 Grayson Road, Harrisburg, Pa. 17111 The Boyer Family is honored to handle the arrangements for the Alter Family.
