Sandra was born July 22, 1944 to Orlando and Clarine (Frosager) Twetten in Albert Lea. She was baptized and confirmed at Our Saviors Lutheran church and graduated with the class of 1962 from Albert Lea High School.

On March 10, 1963 Sandi married Norbert Weitzel at Our Saviors Lutheran Church and raised their family in Albert Lea.

Sandi was a nurse’s aide in the area for over 30 years. She had a heart for helping others and enjoyed her time working at St. John’s and Thorne Crest in Albert Lea. She retired as a Physical Therapist Assistant in 2009 from Health Reach.

She enjoyed coffee with friends and going out whenever she could! Flying with Norb brought her great joy and she loved trips to Laughlin Nevada. Playing bingo and cards with the “Tub Club” and moments watching nature were also enjoyed. She was a loving and caring mother and grandma, who was always present at family holidays and school activities.

Her generous spirit and strong faith will be missed by many, especially her unlimited supply of Wintergreen mints!

Sandi is survived by her husband of 57 years, Norb; son, Kevin (Tami) Weitzel of Albert Lea; grandchildren, Dane Weitzel of Wells and Jaclyn Weitzel of Madison, WI; sister, Beth Rheinfels; nieces and nephews, Judy, Kathy, Rick, Kindra, and Brian; sister-in-law, Jeanine Day and many other relatives and dear friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; two infant children, Brad and Cindy; sister, Julie Bure; niece, Brenda Mellang; nephew, Wrey Frechette; in-laws and brother-in-law, Raymond Weitzel.
