Petra Sanchez

May 15, 1927 ~ May 7, 2021 (age 93)


Petra Sanchez was born in Manati, Puerto Rico. She was married 60 years to the love of her life Rev. Luis Collazo. Together they had two daughters, Elizabeth & Millie; Three Grandkids, Abraham, Maryleen & Anthony; Seven Great Grandkids, Nathanael, Ezequiel, Jazlyn, Naomie, Natalee, Aliyah & Brianna; And Son's & Daughter in love,Tony, Eduardo & Bethzalee.
As a pastor's wife for 24 years, her desire was to serve others with love. Everyone had a place at her table, even if she took your plate away too soon because she had to clean up. Ja! 
She never learned English but knew two things very well, The Humpty Dumpty Song & the definition of the Thermometer. These things she learned while working 26 years at La Escuela Maternal in Monte Hatillo, Puerto Rico. While working there she met her lifelong friend Elsa Calderon. Who still today remains a True Friend to us. 
A wife, mother, grandmother, friend, pastor, the list goes on. Everyone knew her as ABUELA and that made her happy. Her life was an inspiration to us all. She was an example of love, dedication, sacrifice & forgiveness. 
A woman after God's own heart.
