To the Beloved Family of Sandy,
My deepest sympathy on your extreme lossSandy was an extraordinary woman! She was a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, great aunt, daughter and very respected business woman at JC Penney's but to me she was my friend and neighbor!
And what a special and dear friend she was! Sandy and I go back a long long waywe were neighbors for over 30 plus years and in that time we became very closeShe shared many stories of her career at Penney'sShe managed the Intimate Apparel Department which was the largest department in the store. The Woodfield JC Penney's was the flagship store of the entire country so Sandy played an very important role for the company! But Sandy never boosted about that she would just share everyday stories that occurred within her day!
Sandy dressed to the nine's because it was important to look your best in her role but that was Sandy! She always looked her best even if you stopped by their home! She loved long robes with embroidery so there she would be at the front door to greet you in her finest!
We shared many many things!
She talked about Ken's time with the Yankees and meeting all the greats that he played with like Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris. Having dinner and drinks with them! What exciting times!
We both struggled with weight so she would talk about going to Tops weight loss meetings and the friends she met there! Sandy was an inspiration to me and was a shining example of how to dress and carry yourself even though you are not a size 4!!!
Sandy and I also shared a love for a good party, music and dance! I was fortunate to go to the many of the Penney's Christmas parties at Sandy's! There was always a big crowd of at least 60 people or more! Donna and I would always have a Christmas dinner for the neighbors, too! So, we enjoyed Christmas together over the years! Both Sandy and I were over the top Christmas decorators! Multiple trees, villages, wreaths, etc. Sandy gave me ornaments over the years which were all of an Irish theme!
Sandy and Ken celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary at Maggiano's and Sandy and I took to the dance floor several fast dances!!!
Anytime I had a party, Ken and Sandy would come! Over time, Sandy knew all my friends because she would enter my home and enjoy the company of everyone there!
Later, when she was at Lexington, I would take her to enjoy the entertainment and we would sing along!
Sandy became known as Nana to my dogs London and Remy! If I could not make it home; Sandy would come and let them out and play with them! In fact, she had a picture of them in her living room with We Love Nana on the frame!
I was going to have surgery and I told Sandy that I was going to have a professional come and be with me in my home after! She would have NO part of that! She came and stayed with me for 5 days! Ken would come over for dinner! She would make me laugh and it was painful but we had such a great time! Our favorite movie was Lion King! She said it was like have a girl's vacation!
When Sandy became sick, I would go and see her frequently and we would reminisce about the good times!
In the later years, it was very difficult to see Sandy declining in health because she was such a vibrant and full of life person! But, there were days, when I know she knew I was there so it was good
I was fortunate to acquire some of Sandy's Christmas decorations so I will have great memories of my dear Sandy! Plus I now own one of those fabulous long embroidered robes to sport around my home
One last final note I have told her daughter Kim that The Apple Does Not Fall Far From The Tree! She has grown into a strong fine exceptional woman just like her mom in every way!

Rest in peace my beloved Sandy! I will miss you!
Love Always,
Maureen
