Sandra Gayle Moncevais, age 57, passed away Monday, August 24, 2020. She was born on February 15, 1963, in Alice, TX to Lorenzo H. Moncevais and Consuelo Vela Moncevais.
She was an Alice High School graduate where she was a proud member of the Alice High School Coyote Band and inductee of the National Honor Society. Sandra went on to pursue her education at Concordia Lutheran College where she received a BA in Business Administration; she continued her higher education at St. Edwards University in Austin where she earned her Masters of Arts and Criminal Justice degree. She continued her studies at Texas A&M University Corpus Christi and earned her MS in Science and Guidance Counseling.
Sandra enjoyed swimming, going to the beach, attending family gatherings, such as, weddings, and BBQ’s, and loved joining in and singing along with Mariachis. She was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church where she attended school as a child and an avid Alice High School Coyote fan. Sandra was proud of her Catholic upbringing and never waivered from her Christian faith.
