Not sure what to say?

Sandy was my home economics teacher at Olentangy. We learned a lot and had a lot of fun cooking and learning how to manage adulthood. We both loved gardening and she gave me a few trees one is still alive. We went to a Day lily farm near Bowling Green and had a great time admiring the lilies. I will miss her. Thank you for the note you recently send. You are in my thoughts.

We have very fond memories of Sandy (and Chuck). Jeff thoroughly enjoyed helping with their beautiful landscaping and visiting with them. They were especially kind and thoughtful to our girls. We also loved Max. Thinking of your family at this difficult time.

Sandy was a blessing to us when we lived in Bowling Green. She watched our oldest daughter, Elizabeth, a few hours a day for several months. It was a time when she was battling cancer, and it was good for both her and for our daughter. She and Chuck were special people. We enjoyed visiting with them and seeing what was in her garden. Sandy has a special place in our heart and we will miss her. May God bless the whole family in this difficult time.

Sandy. One of the most beautiful spirits I have ever been blessed to know. She helped us babysit our first daughter, Elizabeth, and was so much more. She read her beautiful books and gifted us with a few like Alfie and Ten in a Bed. She walked often in the garden, and we loved to have tea in her breakfast nook. To this day, our 26 year old Liz will hear a tea kettle and say, I want tea! Sandy, we love you so very much.

Sandra was my Home Economics teacher at Olentangy High School in Delaware County. She was more than just my teacher she became my friend and I feel it was a privilege to have known her. Our class was so excited for her when she had her first baby. We were sorry to see her leave our area. She was such an inspiration to me as she pursued so many new activities. She will always have a special place in my heart and I send my sincere sympathy and prayers for all her family. I appreciated so much...

Allen and family, I send my deepest sympathy on hearing about the loss of your mother.

What a lovely and talented friend. We met in the mid 1970's at a spinning event and with several others helped form the Black Swamp Spinners' Guild on NW Ohio. Sandra and her husband helped us get started in our family genealogy search. I loaned her one of my looms to start weaving on her front porch. We took a weaving class with Kathy Hagan at BGSU and tried our hand with local plants for natural dyeing. She will be missed by so many as a very caring person.

I was blessed to meet Sandy in a water exercise class, then shared time with her and Chuck (and Max). She was a master wool spinner and enjoyed weaving as well. I had the good fortune to purchase her loom and I continue to use it today. My thoughts and prayers go to her friends and family. She was indeed, a loving person and will be missed.
