Sandra Sue Dennis, 70, of Maumee, passed away peacefully May 9, 2014, in the company of family and friends.
Sandy was born March 23, 1944, to the late, Clarence and Evelyn Stanford in Toledo, OH. She attended McAuley High School and Bowling Green State University where she earned a degree in Elementary Education. Upon graduation, Sandy taught at the grade school level in Chicago, IL, before returning to Ohio to be a full-time mom.
Sandy is survived by her husband, Ronald Dennis; two sons, Eric (Raegan) and Ryan (Kristin) Schneider; four grandchildren, Owen, Grant, William, and Reed; brother, Gerald (Betty) Stanford; stepchildren, Melinda (Rick) Kujawa and Kristin (Jeff) Usko; step-grandchildren, Amanda, Nathan, Elizabeth Kujawa and Madelyn and Ryan Usko.
Sandy most loved the time that she spent with her friends, whether that be playing Bunco, throwing 'pizza parties', or simply talking for hours on the telephone. She was truly blessed to be surrounded by this incredible support group, most of which she had known since grade school, high school or college. Sandy also greatly loved spending time with her grandchildren, whom referred to her as 'Bunco Grandma'. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
