Sandra "Sandy" Sannito
Sandra "Sandy" Sannito, 46, of Sturgeon Bay, passed away on January 7, 2013, at Aurora Bay Care in Green Bay. She was born on July 21, 1967, in Chicago, IL to Paul and Penny (Casey) Langford. On May 19, 1990, she married her high school sweetheart, Patrick J. Sannito. Sandy graduated from Munster High School in Indiana and received her bachelor's degree from Purdue University in elementary education. She was currently working as a librarian at T.J. Walker Middle School.
Sandy was an intelligent, hardworking and loving person who spent countless hours volunteering for numerous causes at school and in the community. All of the soccer programs in Sturgeon Bay, including Clipper Soccer, Middle School Soccer Club and especially Door County Wave Soccer Club, significantly benefited from her talents and abilities. Recently, Sandy became the ultimate giver by donating her organs to five individuals, answering their prayers with the gift of life.
Sandy was a devoted wife and mother. This young wife was Pat's high school sweetheart and soul mate. Her beauty on the outside was only a mere speck of the beauty on her inside. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her. Sandy left us with the message to "slowdown in life" and treat all those we know with unconditional love.
Survivors include her husband, Pat; two sons, Sean and Connor, both at home; her parents, Paul and Penny Langford, and two sisters, Diane (Eric) Laoang and Karen (Jim) Volk, all of Northwestern Indiana; numerous nieces and nephews.
Memorial services will be at 7:00 p.m. Friday, January 17, 2014, at Bay View Lutheran Church with Rev. Timothy Malek officiating. Visitation will be from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the church on Friday. A memorial fund has been established in her name. Forbes Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. On-line condolences may be offered at www.forbesfuneralhome.com
