While on the college bowling team, she met the love of her life, George (Buzz) Tucker. They were married August 19, 1973. They had 39 wonderful years together. After five years of bliss, they adopted two of the most beautiful children in the world, Kara and Kevin. Sandy taught grade school in the Vallivue School District for 34 years retiring in 2007. She has had a lasting impact on thousands of children during her impressive career. She was active in her teacher association serving as president, treasurer, or building representative and she received the Vallivue District Teacher of the Year Award.
