Sandra Jo Huber Griffin, 85, of Hunt, Texas passed away peacefully on February 2, 2022, in Kerrville, Texas. Sandra “Sandy” lived an incredible life filled with love, laughter and wonderful adventures with an amazing family and a multitude of friends.
Sandy was born in Brownwood, Texas to George Walter “Ike” Huber and Ima B. Huber on November 21, 1936. The family relocated to Kerrville, Texas in 1939 where Sandy completed all of her schooling.

When Sandy married Gerry, his Air Force and NASA careers took them to many home-bases across the U.S. They returned to her beloved Texas Hill Country in 1992. Throughout her life she was a talented artist and sculptor creating beautiful and fun pieces. Sandy also loved golf. A competitive player, she and her partners won numerous tournaments and she actively served on committees at each country club over the years.
