Sandy was a wonderful artist, she loved to draw Eagles and sketch still pictures. She was known to be a “Free Spirit” so the family enjoyed living together in Wisconsin, Michigan, Colorado, Utah, Oregon, before returning to Duluth.

Sandra delighted in collecting antiques, and going to the casino, but most of all, she adored spending time with her grandchildren.
