Sandra graduated from Rushville High School class of 1959. She was a baptized May of 1974 and confirmed member of the First Evangelical Lutheran Church of Beardstown and a member of Rebekah Lodge “Odd Fellows” in Rushville. Sandra had a colorful career that led her different directions. She worked in Washington D.C. for the FBI for two years, as a secretary in Chicago for a short span, then at Culbertson Memorial Hospital. She took time off to raise her family and later retired from Walmart in 2010 as a CSM. In her spare time, she enjoyed reading, cooking sewing, and watching her grand dogs. No greater gift can be given than a love of a mother and she will be missed dearly by those who called her mom or grandma.
Funeral services will be held at 10 AM Thursday, May 12, 2022 at First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Beardstown with Reverend John Ashcraft officiating. Burial will be in Oetgen Cemetery in rural Beardstown. The family will meet with friends from 5-7 PM Wednesday at Colwell Memorial Home in Beardstown.
