Sandra Harvey

GREENVILLE — Funeral services have been set for 11 a.m. Thursday at the Coker-Mathews Funeral Home chapel in Greenville for Sandra Ladine Greenwell Harvey. Cremation will follow.

Mrs. Harvey died June 6, 2014,  in Greenville.

She was born Dec. 21, 1944, in Dallas to Jack and Bernice McDaniel Greenwell. She lived with her family in Dallas; Memphis, Tenn.; Houston; Arvada, Colo.; and Garland, where she graduated from Garland High School in 1962.

On Oct. 30, 1965, she was married to Gary Harvey in Garland. The couple raised two sons and moved in the 1990s to Commerce, where they have lived since.

Over the years, Mrs. Harvey worked at a variety of jobs. A devoted animal lover, she spent several years working for a veterinarian. But in later years, she decided she wanted a career and enrolled at East Texas State University. She earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology, then continued for a master’s degree in the same field. She worked for several years as a school psychologist in the Mabank ISD.

Shortly after her retirement from the school district, she began experiencing the first symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Despite a heroic fight, the symptoms progressed quickly and side effects from the disease led to her death.

Mrs. Harvey is survived by her husband, Gary of Commerce; two sons, Greg of Rockwall and Jeff of Commerce; her father, Jack Greenwell of Commerce; two sisters and their husbands, Connie and David Landmann of Copperas Cove and Debra and Kyle Wilkison of Plano; three granddaughters, Alysha Harvey of Dallas, Taylor Harvey of Dallas and Hannah Harvey of Rockwall; one great-grandson; two aunts and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her mother in 2013 and her brother, Steve, in 1986.
