Sandra was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She was exceptionally proud of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchild. She loved holidays and family get-togethers; any chance to spend time with her family was important to her. She would spend hours cooking and preparing for them, all the while planning the next get-together and meal. She loved attending her grandchildren’s many sporting events and activities and was not shy about bragging about their accomplishments.
After Mark retired, they spent their time traveling and camping with friends and family always making sure there was a band nearby as she loved dancing. Her house was a home with open doors to all family and friends throughout the years, gathering together to share in good food, fun times, and making memories. She was a foundation for her family and friends and the glue that brought everyone together. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.
