Sandy was born Sandra Ann McKee in Marshalltown, Iowa on April 25, 1947 the second of four children to Ray and Marie McKee. Sandy graduated from St. Mary's High School in Marshalltown and soon after moved with her family to McKinney, Texas in 1965. She moved to Houston a few years later, where she raised her two sons, Stephen and Matthew, and called home for the majority of her adult life. Sandy displayed an active and independent attitude about life, as persuaded by her love of traveling and meeting new people. She was kind, giving, and a devoted mother and friend. Tennis, golf, and yoga were enjoyed by Sandy in her later years, as well as a good movie and a full social calendar.
