Ms. Newman was born June 21, 1953, in Surry County, one of four children born to the late Charles Clifford and Virginia “Genny” Ashburn Newman. Sandra grew up in the Red Brush community and graduated from North Surry High School in 1973. She worked at Renfro Corporation for many years and was a member of Blues Grove Baptist Church.
