Sandy Lee Hallman, 77

A beloved, loving mother and adored, devoted wife, Sandy Lee Hallman, 77, passed away on the morning of Wednesday, June 5, 2019, after a brief illness. She was born in Norristown, Pa., the day after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the first child of the late Luther Samuel Rahmer and the late Eleanor Szymanski Rahmer. Hallman was the older sister of Sharon Morgan, and her late husband, Joseph; Lori Sarnocinski and her husband, Stanley; and Larry Rahmer and his wife, Vicki.

She lived a life of love and happiness, filled with an abundance of both. A member of the East Gate Presbyterian Church, she was a gifted cook who found great joy in reading, but, most of all, she loved being surrounded by her loved ones, of which she had many. It was a life well-lived.

Hallman is survived by her husband of 59 years, Joseph Irwin Hallman; her three sons, Joseph Scott, Gregory and his wife, Robin, and Justin and his wife, Claudia; five grandchildren whom she adored, Joshua, Kayla, Christopher, Ryan and Eleanor; and a legion of devoted friends, nieces and nephews.

A celebration of Hallman’s life will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, June 20, 2019, at East Gate Presbyterian Church, 34806 Church Lane, Millsboro, Del. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations are appreciated at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of DE; 1300 N. Grant Ave.; Wilmington, DE 19806, or to East Gate Presbyterian Church; 34806 Church Ln.; Millsboro, DE 19966. Condolences may be sent online at via
