She was a loving person, always putting the needs of friends and family first. If Sandy saw a person at church or anywhere standing alone, she would talk to them to help them feel comfortable. 

The family moved from Albert Lea in 1970 and to Casa Grande, Arizona, in ’72; Phoenix in ’78 and to Prescott Valley in 2000.
