She loved her work as a Pre-Need Counselor where she met many wonderful people whom she felt a privilege to help, many at a difficult time of life.

Sandy was an extremely talented woman who loved to garden, cook, bake and knit. She and Dewey opened their home to any who needed a meal, a good visit or life advice. Sandy never let anyone leave her home hungry or unhappy. She was always helping those in need

In 2016 she joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, EWI, NSA, Beta Sigma Phi, and was a certified PADI diver.
