Sandra Lorraine Janzen

Janzen, Sandra Lorraine
transitioned peacefully, surrounded by those who loved her deeply, on the 25th of December 2011 at her tranquil home in Phoenix, Arizona. Sandy was born on the 8th of July 1952 in Topeka, Kansas. Sandy is survived by her five cats; Shadow, Willy, Lilly, T-Rex and Louie as well as her father, Rodney Janzen, brother, Phillip Janzen, and sister, Tracy Force. Sandy was an attorney by profession and a highly accredited scholar. She was a devoted LDS member, teaching seminary for many years to the youth group and most recently was acting President of the Women's Relief Society. Sandy was also a loving and devoted soul to her family and friends. Sandy possessed qualities that taught people to think "outside of the box" and opened our eyes and hearts far beyond this earthly sector. She was dearly loved and will be truly missed by all who knew her. Services will be held at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 in the LDS Ward located at 3601 E. Shea Blvd., Phoenix, AZ 85028.
