Sandy was loved and cherished by so many friends and family. She was always so upbeat and found the good in every situation. She was a true child of God. One of her favorite verses was Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you plans to give you hope and a future."

Sandy spent her life always doing for others. At the age of 50 she found her soul mate and life partner. Together they were married and blissfully in love. Sandy had no children of her on, but if she was asked by anyone she would say she had one daughter "her niece" Heather Walker Wilson and two granddaughters Rylie-Claire Collins and Sadie Wilson.

She also had a great love for her animals. She always said they were her fur babies.
