Sandra L. Schwanberg Obituary
Schwanberg, Sandra L.

Sandy passed away at her home in the mountains of Northern California on February 1st. She was surrounded by loved ones and the nature which so deeply inspired her.

She was a lifelong advocate for social justice and human rights, as well as an unrelenting believer in the inherent good of people.

Sandy is survived by her wife Maurine Renville and her son Christopher S. Guthrie.

She touched many lives through her work at the University of New Mexico College of Nursing, with the New Mexico Native American Indian Nurses Association, as well as through many other community boards and organizations.

She was also passionate about community gardens and land restoration.

An always giving and always grateful person, Sandy has asked that in lieu of flowers, those who are inspired to do so donate to the Roadrunner Food Bank of NM, the Undergraduate Nursing Scholarship Fund at the UNM Foundation, or the Quivira Coalition.

A Memorial Service will be held at the UNM Alumni Chapel in Albuquerque


on Sunday February 28 from 2:30-3:30 pm with reception to follow. All who shared in the joy of Sandy's life are invited to join.
