In the early evening of November 25th, 2019, Sandra Clauss-Wallace, wife of Craig Wallace and mother to Taylor, Jordan and Hunter Clauss Wallace, passed away at her home in Navarre surrounded by her family. Sandy, as she was known by her many friends and very large extended family, had been undergoing treatment for ovarian cancer for the past two years.

Born on March 25, 1967 in Scranton, Pennsylvania to the late Dr. Thomas F. Clauss and Joan Audrey Christman Clauss, Sandy was the tenth of eleven children raised by them in Justus, PA. Sandy attended Lakeland High School and was an outstanding student athlete, excelling in softball, basketball and track and being inducted into the Lakeland Sports Hall of Fame for her softball prowess. After graduating from Lakeland in 1985, she continued her studies at Penn State University where she played varsity softball for one year until her academic curriculum conflicted with her participation in sports. She graduated from Penn State in 1989 and worked as an athletic trainer for several years. During that time, she met her husband Craig, a former professional soccer player for Manchester United, who was running the Pine Forest Camp soccer and tennis in the Pocono Mountains.

Sandy and Craig married in 1994 and set up home in Navarre where they raised their three children reveling in their academic and athletic successes. She was an enthusiastically proud and loving mother, attending her kids’ soccer matches and driving them across the south to compete. For many years, Sandy worked as an athletic trainer for various companies including Sports Injury and Treatment center of NEPA, PT and Rehabilitative services, and Baptist First Rehab. Sandy was also a beloved teacher and coach at Navarre High school. For the past 11 years, Sandy was a PT assistant for PT solutions.

Sandy had a strong passion for sports, which inspired her career. She was always playing one game or another throughout her life, passing that love down to her children. She was also an avid music lover and Disney fan, rewatching every movie multiple times including the Lion King which featured the music of her favorite artist, Elton John. She was known for her quick wit, her infectious smile and her kind and adventurous spirit

In addition to her parents Sandy is predeceased by her brother Jon. Sandy is survived, however, by hundreds of relatives who will never forget her warm loving smile: her husband and their three children, her brothers Tucker, Gary, Kevin, Kerry and Chris, her sisters Patti, Joan, Sue and Kim, her brother-in-law Gregg, her mother-in-law Toni, their respective spouses and significant others, 37 nieces and nephews, 18 grandnieces and grandnephews, more than 27 first cousins and countless other relatives who often gathered at family reunions attended by hundreds of Clausses, Faddens, Kellys, O’Malleys, Evans, Murphys, Lombardis and Nalevankos in northeastern PA.

Funeral arrangements are being handled by the Lewis Funeral Home, 7794 Navarre Parkway, Navarre FL, 32564. A private reception for relatives will be held on Saturday, November 30, 2019 from 12:00-1:00 pm, followed by a public reception for friends from 1:00-2:00 pm. Services will be held immediately thereafter after at the funeral home’s chapel.

Flowers are being handled by Navarre Beach Florist, 850-939-2288, Charitable contributions may be made or directed to the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance.

I am so sorry for your loss. I just read the notice about Sandy in the Penn Stater (alumni magazine). Sandy and I were in the same athletic training program at PSU, and therefore spent lots of time together in class, groups study sessions, and complaining about all the work we had to balance while being student athletic trainers. I remember her fondly. She always seemed happy and made others smile with her smile. I often wondered if her facial muscles were sore at times! The world is a sadder place without her in it. Sincerely, Tracy Harper

My most heartfelt condolences to Sandy's family. Very hard to find out such a kind soul is no longer with us. More than a co worker, she was a friend and someone you could rely on and was always welcomed by her great smile! I miss you already dear friend. I am also comforted to know you are no longer suffering.
