She enjoyed spending time with her large extended family and loved time spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Sandy enjoyed baking and hosting all family gatherings.

She was even so prepared all future great and probably great-great grandchildren will be blessed with one! Sandy was always on the go; you could not slow her down no matter how many times her children chewed her out for it. She had many small and large projects that she was sure to assign to one of her family members for completion. Projects were always done on her schedule and her way or she would let you know or just do it herself.
