Cassandra "Sandra" Floyd was born to the late Edward "WD" and Eliza "Ms. Liza" Floyd in Fernandina Beach Florida. She was educated in the public schools of Nassau County, graduating from the newly desegregated Fernandina Beach High School, Class of 1972. Sandra moved to Washington, DC to make her mark on the world. She would ultimately spend the next 37 years there.

Sandra attended the University of the District of Columbia majoring in business. She was employed by the United States Postal Service for 36 years retiring in 2009. During her employment she held several positions from LSM operator, to Window clerk and Express Mail clerk. 

Sandra had a love for gardening, health and nutrition, but most of all sewing and embroidery, which she was introduced to by her mother as a consolation for missing a Delfonics concert. Her talent and creativity was definitely God given. 

When she had all the snow and ice she could handle, Sandra moved back to her beloved hometown of Fernandina. Following the passing of her mother, Sandra joined the Nassau County Sheriff's office as a crossing guard, stationed at Southside Elementary school. She absolutely loved her job and could be found buying treats for "her children" throughout the school year. 

Sandra firmly believed in making a difference in the lives of others. To that end, she held various volunteer positions including mentor with Take Stock In Children and she was a Fernandina Beach Housing Authority board member. She was diligent and faithful in her work and service until her health began to fail. 

On Wednesday, June 10, 2020 God declared that Cassandra's work on this side of eternity was done and she slept away peacefully in her home (Augustine Landing, Jacksonville, FL) . 

Of all the things her life afforded her, she cherished the most, her titles of Mama: LaShonda Alderman; Gran-Gran: Kayla Alderman; Sister: Yvonne (Theodore) Brown, Laverne Floyd - Mitchell, Charles "Chuck" (Barbara) Floyd, Victor (Lillie) Russell, and Serena (Wayne) Peterson; An'Sandra: Donna (Ronnie) Dart, Shakira Thompson, Christopher Brown, LaTanya (Lucious) Sumlar, Marcus, Charmaine and Keri Floyd; and Auntie: 6 great-nieces and 4 great-nephews. 
Loving memories will be shared amongst a host of extended family and friends including her DC crew, Richetta Campbell, Sara Moore, Carol Marbury, Linda Price, and Carolyn Davis-Tally; her loving caretakers, Venice Stewart, Rosie Johnson and Christine Wilson; her mother figure,  Marilyn Harris; neighbor, Wanda Nixon; and dear friend, Ernestine Pollen.

Cassandra was a beautiful person and the same all of the time.

I met Sandra as I married into the family but Sandra and I grew to share our own special connection especially as my affinity of embroidery grew. Don't judge a guy for liking embroidery 😁. I will definitely choose to dwell in the fun memories I have for Sandra and her love of family she had. I know I'll see her again in heaven one day. May you rest in eternal peace knowing that you will never be forgotten.

Brenda Parker Alston and I (Cynthia Purnell) are devastated at the loss of our friend. Brenda and I have been friends with Cassandra for over 25 years. There are so many memories for us to share, but we will only share the following. Brenda, Ann, Cassandra and I had the honor of having Sunday dinner at our Aunt Lenora's home every week. We were a family. Aunt Lenora prepared some delicious old home Sunday dinners. She also had some really old school saying that she would share. One of Cassandra's favorite was when Aunt Lenora would say when we left her, you left me looking like "Ned in the primer". We were never sure exactly what that meant but never question it. The bottom line along with the sayings was the bonding between the five of us that was so special. My sister, Brenda and I are the only ones left of that crew. We will miss Cassandra so very much.
We would like to offer to the family the following scripture:
Luke 16:22 - And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom; the rich man also died and was buried.
We believe that Cassandra is resting in Abraham's bosom.
Cassandra, we love you.
