Sandra Lynn Smith-Cason was born on March 19, 1956, in Lacey, AR to the late Wallace "Sonny Boy" Smith and the late Missionary Carlene Harden Satterwhite. Known to her father as "Baby Girl", she was the third of four children born to this union.
After receiving salvation in 1990 under the leadership of the late Supt. Roy Simmons, Sandra became a very active member of Holy Temple #2. She began a serious walk with the Lord. Sandra soon became a licensed missionary and took her ministry to heart, thus reaching the lives of many and exemplifying the love of Jesus Christ to all. Over the years, she warmed many hearts by showing compassion to others. She provided many gift baskets, gift bags, food drops, and various greeting cards to the church and throughout the community. Although she didn't always feel her best, she found the strength to bring a ray of sunshine to those who were hospitalized or sick and shut-in. Her listening ear and wise counsel inspired many to stay in the spiritual race. Sandra was a very unique person. After the demise of Supt. Simmons, she and her family kept the church alive until the Lord sent new leadership. She continued to faithfully serve until she was called home.
Missionary Cason completed her studies at Drew High School and was employed by the University of Arkansas at Monticello for 30 years. She was joined in Holy Matrimony to Dec. John Cason, and together they shared a beautiful life with their blended family of nine children, seven grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.
On Monday, May 25, 2020, God decided that it was time for his beloved daughter Sandra to receive her eternal reward. She was preceded in death by her parents Wallace "Sonny Boy" Smith, Bishop H.W. Satterwhite, and Missionary Carlene Harden Satterwhite; two sons, Khalil Smith and Artenus Cason.
Everlasting memories will be cherished by her husband John Cason; four daughters, Yolonda Cole of Fort Smith, AR, Yovonda (Darrall) Wimbley of Houston, TX, Khamya Smith of Monticello, AR, and Katlynn Smith of Crossett, AR; one god-daughter, Komiko Patton of Hermitage, AR; three sons, Emilio (Marita) Cason, Mitchell Cason, Faustino Cason of Crossett, AR; seven grandchildren, three great-grands; siblings, Rosemary (Joe) Britton and Vernon (Yolanda) Smith of Monticello, AR, Wanda (Chester) Hutson of Bryant, AR, Sondra Harris and Wallace Smith Jr. of Gulf Port, MS; Leonard Owens of Warren, AR, Meshonda (Marquis) Donahoo of Conway, AR, Willie (Jerrie) Daniels of Bastrop, LA, and Sheila (Ronnie) Wilson of Crossett, AR.
