I will miss my friend, my sister-in-law, my Florida neighbor and my partner in high jinks. She raised three wonderful children, Mike, David and Patty. I am so proud to call them niece and nephews!!! Rest in peace my friend.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Sandy’s professionalism and compassion helped me through my student teaching 25 years ago in Glennie. She built up my confidence and helped me prepare for my own career in Tawas. I won’t forget her warm and caring smile.

Mike, David, and Patty,
My thoughts and prayers. Your mom was a very friendly lady. I subbed with her in Oscoda before I got a full time job in Bellaire. As a teacher, she really cared about her school kids.
