Sandra loved everyone and was the kindest most loving mother any child could ask for. She was well known for her "constant go-go attitude in life". She always had an adventure up her sleeve and loved to help out anybody in need. She loved picking berries, being outdoors and traveling. She was the "pack" leader for the bingos and rummy ladies. She adored all her friends and family and the time she spent with them. She will be greatly missed by so many people. We understand that God needed her more than we did and she is probably up in Heaven doing what she loved doing, driving people around and taking care of people, feeding and entertaining her friends and family.

If we forgot anyone it was not intentional, she loved everyone equally.
