Sandra L. Olds, 67, Wisconsin Rapids, passed away on Friday, February 1, 2013 at her home.

Sandee was born on February 25, 1945 in Wausau, WI to Robert and Harriet (Peters) Johnson.

She graduated in 1963 from D.C. Everest, and from the Green Bay College of Beauty in 1964. She was a cosmetologist for 31 years, and some of that time owned and operated a business in Brodhead, WI. She spent the later years of her life living in Montana. After her husband's passing in September 2012, she moved to Wis. Rapids, WI., where she passed away surrounded by her family.

Sandee is survived by her children: Pennee (Billy) Barron, Odenville, Alabama; Karlene (Kevin) Dillingham Wis. Rapids; and Bob (Russann) McManus, Janesville, Wis; six grandchildren: Samantha McGuffie, Tyler Cowan, Zackary McManus, Kourtney McManus, Kasey Dillingham, Kooper McManus, and twin great-grandsons, Miles and Malik. She is further survived by step grand-kids and step-great grandkids. She was predeceased by her husband, John Olds, and her parents.

A celebration of life will be held on Friday, February 15, 2013 at 1:00 pm at Herman-Taylor Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Wisconsin Rapids. Visitation will be from 12:00 noon until the time of the service. Burial will take place in the spring in Red Wing, MN. Sandee loved bright colors with red being her favorite, so the family asks in honor of her, casual bright colors should be worn.
