Sandra Kay Tipton Gamble, ED.D., a native of Minden, LA and a resident of Baton Rouge, LA, passed away peacefully surrounded by family and friends on Friday, February 2, 2018 at the age of 70. Beloved mother of Matthew Gamble and wife Sarah. Loving Grandmother of Cecilia June Gamble, Vivian Louise Gamble, and John England Gamble. Also survived by a sister, Kathy Towns and husband Mike of Arcadia, LA; Nephew Jason Towns and wife Lisa, nieces Elizabeth and Grace Towns of Corpus Christi, TX, Nephew Steve Towns and wife Jennifer, nephews Tate Towns and Clayton Towns of Minden, LA. She was preceded in death by her parents Lea Mae Holley Tipton and Fallis Orwell Tipton. Dr. Gamble was a fun loving and devoted mother to Matthew, her only son and a foster mother to many of his friends. She was a well-liked educator and dedicated her life to teaching. She had recently moved to Baton Rouge to be near her grandchildren and enjoyed babysitting, bedtime stories, and bath time with them. She felt her most important job as a mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt was to transmit her faith in Jesus Christ to her family. She did this effectively in both the way she lived and the way she died. Her passing was holy and attended by her closest friends, family, angels, and saints. She passed into eternity with hymns and sacred scripture as she met Jesus Christ her Eternal Bridegroom. Relatives and friends of the family are invited to attend the Visitation at St. Aloysius Church, Stuart Ave, Baton Rouge, LA on Monday, February 5, 2018 from 10 AM until 11 AM. The Funeral Mass will follow at 11 AM. A Memorial Reception will follow the Funeral Mass in the St. Aloysius Parish Hall. Interment will be in Spring Hill Baptist Church Cemetery, Ringgold, LA on Wednesday, February 7, 2018 at 1 PM with a visitation to follow in the fellowship hall. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Missionaries of Charity, 737 East Blvd, Baton Rouge, LA 70802.
