Sandy, as she was called by all who knew and loved her, was a nurse. She was a graduate of the Glenwood Hills Hospital Nursing School (Minneapolis) in 1964. Sandy worked at Woodruff Community Hospital, the Harriman Jones Clinic and the student medical center at Long Beach State University.

Sandy moved to Long Beach with her husband Gordon in 1973. Gordon, until his retirement, was employed by North American Aviation/Rockwell International.

Sandy was a physically active young lady. When her three children were young, she played volleyball and softball in various Long Beach and Lakewood city parks. At age 31 she took up soccer, playing in both Long Beach and Orange County women's leagues. She finally hung up her soccer cleats, playing in a women's soccer tournament, at age 56. She often ran 5k and 10k races with her soccer teammates.
