Together they were pioneers in many projects including agricultural preservation and the creation of the Virginia Beach Amphitheatre. Sandy also enjoyed a 23-year career with the Bank of America. Most of all, she loved the farm life; a mother to all humming birds and nature’s other wonders.Sandy cherished her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren: daughter Kim E.
