Sandra grew up in Minden, graduated from MHS, and was a homemaker and single parent for most of her married life while Dennis worked overseas. She held down the fort, issued discipline, provided taxi services, and completed home repairs as needed. She enjoyed gardening, deer hunting, painting and was an accomplished artist. She was a voracious reader, loved her animals and was an avid PETA supporter. Sandra loved politics and was always ready to debate issues. Sandra was a tenacious fighter who survived both bladder and breast cancer and was surrounded by her family when she gained access to heaven.
The family would like to express their utmost gratification to the outstanding staff of Passages Hospice. Special thanks to Carlie Day and Jesse McCain for their thoughtfulness and compassion. A graveside memorial service will be held at a future date.
