Born on April 30, 1969 in Ohio, Andrea was the daughter of the late Tomasa Puentes and Abraham Alcorta. She was one of twelve children and always the “light” of the room. She was gifted in so many ways, and used her voice to touch others by singing the gospel and helped lead souls to Christ. She touched hearts and always gave praise to “Him” for her talent. What she was most thankful for was her family, especially her husband and children. Andrea was a dedicated member of Clinton Family Worship Center where she was a member of the Worship Team. She was the manager of her own gospel band, the “Alcorta Family Band”. She also loved to travel and go camping as much as possible. Although she was diagnosed with cancer and fought so hard to stay here for her family, she never once gave up. Her light will always shine in all of us.
She is survived by her husband, David Sanchez of the home; her three sons: Jovan, Jordan and Julian Sanchez; Sisters: Dora Medina; Anna Alcorta, Adela Bautista, Kelly Martinez, Margaret Alcorta, Linda Soria, Alexsandra Alcorta; Brothers: Joe Alcorta, Al Alcorta and Arnold Alcorta; grandson, Joseph Sanchez; granddaughter, Joleen Sanchez; numerous nieces and nephews; and her close family friend and band member, Randy Chappell.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a sister, Alma Rosa.
Royal-Hall is honored to serve the Alcorta Sanchez family.
