Sandra M. (Neidlein) Johnston

September 13, 1946 ~ April 13, 2015

Sandra M. (Neidlein) Johnston, age 68, of Port Penn, Delaware passed away unexpectedly on Monday, April 13, 2015, while vacationing in Cancun, Mexico.

Born on September 13, 1946, in Wilmington, Delaware, she was the daughter of Vernon E. Neidlein and the late Evelyn (Faville) Neidlein.

Sandy, affectionately known as “Mama J” to many of her close friends and family, worked at the Ches Del Restaurant for 20 years, retiring in 2006. She will always be remembered as a fun-loving, energetic individual who loved to read, exercise, travel with her girlfriends and spend time with her loving family and visit the beach. Sandy was an avid animal lover and enjoyed spoiling her two dogs, Roxi and Lucy.

As a loving and giving individual, Sandy enjoyed volunteering her time in the community. She was a long time member of Port Penn Volunteer Fire Company, the Delaware City Recreation Club and VFW #838 in Port Penn. “Mama J” will always be remembered as a loving daughter, wife, mother, grandmother and dear friend to many. Her love for life will continue to live on through the many memories she created.
In addition to her mother, Sandy was preceded in death by her loving husband, Johnny P. Johnston.

She leaves many fond memories to her father, Vernon E. Neidlein; her two children, Sean P. Johnston and his wife, Julie and Jessica A. Brown and her husband, William and six very special and loved grandchildren, Alexa, William, Casey, Ashley, Jason and Sean, Jr.

Friends may visit with Sandy’s family from 6:00-8:00 pm on Tuesday evening, April 21, 2015 at Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 214 Clinton Street in Delaware City, where funeral services will be held at 11:30 am on Wednesday morning, April 22, 2015. Interment will follow in Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 2465 Chesapeake City Road, Bear, DE.

In memory of Sandy’s love for animals, memorial contributions may be made to the SPCA of Delaware, 455 Stanton Christiana Road, Newark, DE 19713.

    Not enough words to express the loss of Ms. Sandy. We grew up with her at Ches Del and we were lucky enough to continue being her friend even after she left Ches Del. Our thoughts are with her family today and for many days to come. We will miss her so very much as we know so will all her family and friends.
    Who could ever forget that contagious and infectious laugh!!
    Gone but never forgotten.

    Sean, Jessica and Vernon-=Sandy the mom and daughter will be sorely missed by all that new her. I have a lot of fond memories of Sandy in our youth. Although we had not had much contact the last few years did not mean out of sight out of mind. Vernon, Sandy was “the chip off the ole block” the same goes for you Jessica for you remind me so much of your MOM. So God bless all,.Unkle, Roy and Aunt Joyce Faville
