May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Ash performed the wedding for my husband Bill & me at Westminster in Elgin in 1968. I am so thankful to have had Sandra as a friend as new wife. Later when we had boy-girl twins, Sandra was the first to call to offer congratulations and help. We treasure our friendship with the Aeschliman family. May our gracious Heavenly Father keep you close.
I was so saddened to hear of Sandra's passing. She was my first mentor while growing up in the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Elgin, IL. I will never forget her huge smile, hearty laugh, great faith, contagious love for the Lord, & the fantastic conversations we shared about the things of God. Much love to Pastor Aeschliman, Missy, Libby, Rich, Rachel, & the rest of her family.
Just wanted the family to know I care. Sandra was a true professional who approached each day with a positive attitude. I have many fond memories of her when she taught at Towers.
Aunt Sandra will be greatly missed here on earth by all of us who loved her dearly, but Heaven is that much more beautiful with her there. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Uncle Richard, Missy, Libby, Richie, and Rachel.
Richard, our prayers are with you and your family. God bless.
You are all in my prayers. It is so hard to let go, we want them to be well, but we want them with us as well. She is perfect now. And we will all meet up again soon. Love you Aunt Sandra.
Dick and family, I am so saddened to learn of Sandra's death. I'm sure she and Tom are visiting and "catching up" today. I'm so sorry I can't be there with you now, but due to an accident last week and subsequent concussion and broken wrist, I'm unable to travel.
I loved Sandra very much. She was a precious friend. What a beautiful smile she always had.
My deepest sympathy to all of you. May our Lord comfort and sustain you each and every day.
Having grown up with Sandra, we always know Sandra was the one of us that would do the right thing. The Grenada Girls will miss her smile and her grace whenever we got together. With love and prayers, Mary Lee Simmons Boutwell
Sandra was a beautiful person inside and out. She was the most wonderful, loving Grandmother. I feel blessed and honored to have known her. She was talented, fun and full of life. She will always remind me of renewal, flowers, Spring and everything beautiful.
I pray God will give you comfort and peace during this difficult time.

Dick, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. We are so glad to have known Sandy and you through our dinners at the Salzmanns. She was a special, lovely lady and will be missed by so many.
May our Lord be with all of you at this very hard time.
To all Sandra's familly. Wish I could be there to pay last to Sandra ans be with you, but know that I will with with you in thoughts and prayers. Such a beautiful picture of her! She looks like her mother.
Very sorry to hear of Mrs Aeschliman's passing. Fond memories of her and the family during time in St. Louis. Comforting to know that the same joy of the Lord she had in this life is only magnified in the presence of her Heavenly Father. My sincere sympathies and prayers for all the family. I know she will be deeply missed.
Sandra was a dear friend when we were both students at Belhaven College in Jackson, Mississippi. She was a blessing to all that knew her. Her precious smile will always be remembered. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family during this time. We take comfort in knowing she has found peace in her heavenly home free from all pain and suffering.
Sandra was a wonderful example as a faithful pastor's wife, loving mother, dedicated teacher and most of all a very special friend from the time we first met she and Ash in Westminster Presbyterian Church in Elgin, Illinois. Proverbs 31 always reminds me of her: "Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she SMILES at the future. She opens her mouth in wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and bless her; her husband also. . ." We thank the Lord that He blessed us with her friendship and we pray for His comfort for Ash and Missy, Libby, Rich & Rachel and their families. "Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His godly ones."
Mr. Aeshliman,Rich,Rachel, and family- You are in my prayers. Love you all.
I will always appreciate the kindness and friendliness that the Aeschliman's showed my parents while attending SMHS football games. Though I didn't know the Aeschliman's very well, I admire the job that they both did as parents and followers of Christ and hope that my wife and I can model their example well. I'm sure that she has already heard, "well done good and faithful servant."
Although we never met, I know Mrs. Aeschliman was an exceptional person by the example of her daughter, Rachel and her family. We are deeply saddened by their loss and will continue to keep them in our prayers and hold them in our hearts.
I enjoyed working with Sandra at GED Testing Service; we were both essay readers. Her knowledge of English and gardening was encyclopedic. She will be missed.
Sandra was such a loving and thoughtful pastor's wife while she and Ash were at Westminster Presbyterian in Elgin, IL. She was so generous and hospitable and no one was a stranger to her. We all loved her and she and Ash had a warm spot in our hearts, as well as the children! Heaven is much richer for her presence now. Love and sympathy to All, Norma Bobbitt
Mrs. Aeschliman was so thoughtful and kind. When my family starting attending Grace Presbyterian in the mid 80's she made me feel so welcomed to the church and youth group.
I loved the sound of her laughter and look forward to hearing it again.
May the God of comfort be with you all during this difficult time.
First met Sandra when she was a part time teacher at Towers High. We became fast friends as we had so much in common....Presbyterian roots and four kids. It was great when she came to Towers full time. She was a great addition to our English Dept. She later talked me into following her in getting certified in ESOL. We often met on Fridays after school for coffee and girl talk. She made it to my wedding in 2009 even though she was then fighting cancer! She was my Christian sister and I'm so grateful that God put her on my earthly path. We'll meet again, Sandra! What joy must be yours today as you fellowship with the angels!
