Sandage, Joyce V. - Springfield  
Joyce V. Sandage SPRINGFIELD, IL - Joyce V. Sandage would like to let you know that her work here was completed on Friday, June 26, 2015. Her new mission takes her to a wonderful place where she will be baking, working with children, supporting adults, leading community groups, laughing and rejoicing with the love of her life, Bill, her sister, Betty Robertson, parents, grandparents and her precious daughter, Diana Dexheimer. Family: Joyce V. Sandage was born Jan. 7, 1920, in Tuscola to Everett and Garnet Plowman Fetherolf. Joyce married William O. Sandage on April 5, 1942, and he preceded her in death on April 29, 1986. She has been a resident of Springfield since 1947. Joyce's spirit is carried on by her children: William D. Sandage of Nolanville, TX, Gary M. (Judith) Sandage of Pontiac, IL, Donald W. Sandage of Bangkok, Thailand, Sheryl E. (Donald) Poggi of Springfield, and Douglas K. Sandage of Copperas Cove, TX; seven grandchildren: Darcy (James) Richards, Derek (Mindy) Dexheimer, Amy (Jarrod) Hunt, Brian (Laura) Sandage, David Sandage, Stacy (Mike) Miller, and Aaron (Lupe) Sandage; six step-grandchildren: Michael (Mary) Poggi, Barbara (Danny) Coffey, Mark (Kimm) Poggi, Molly (Orlando) Medina, Rick Poggi and Daniel (Tracy) Poggi; 13 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; one brother, Richard Fetherolf; one sister, Georgia (Sam) Cunningham, both of San Antonio, TX; and her son-in-law, Jerry Dexheimer of Sherman. Community Leadership: Joyce served in many community leadership roles. As an active member of state and local Parent Teacher Associations (PTA) she served as officer (e.g., president, secretary) and chairperson. She was enthusiastically involved in scouting, both Girl and Boy Scouts for many years. Joyce served in leadership roles with the Illinois State Historical Society, was an election judge for numerous years, taught and served as youth leader at the First Church of God, and chaired and worked with several charitable organizations. But most importantly, she became "Mother McClernand", an advocate for children and teachers at McClernand Elementary School for 58 years. Joyce received several awards through her life among them the Springfield Church Women United Valiant Woman Award, the Illinois State Board of Education Those Who Excel award, and the Springfield School District Bob Goldman Award. In lieu of flowers, those who wish to remember Joyce have two choices: 1) memorial contributions may be made to the Joyce Sandage Memorial Scholarship Fund in care of Springfield Marine Bank, and/or 2) Joyce would hope that you will do an unexpected and unsolicited act of kindness for some child in her name. Arrangements: Life celebration will take place at 11 a.m. on Friday, July 3, 2015, at Bisch Funeral Home West, 2931 Koke Mill Rd., Springfield, IL with a private internment to follow at Oak Ridge Cemetery on Monday, July 6. We invite you to join us and celebrate together from 4-7 p.m. on Thursday, July 2, 2015, at Bisch West. Baked items, although not nearly as good as Joyce's, are being provided by family and friends. Please visit the online "Life Remembered Story" at bischfuneralhomewest.com where you can see pictures of our dear mother from birth to end of life, with illustration of major events and important people in her life.
