August 26, 1941 - May 29, 2021
Tacoma, Washington - Sandra Lee (Otto) Jerke passed away on Saturday after suffering a massive brain aneurysm. In typical Sandra spirit, she was an organ donor, and by Monday three families were celebrating the gift of organ transplants and extensions of life.
It was Sandra's passion and joy to be a part of her community! She loved sharing time with her family, friends, Trinity Lutheran Church, Pacific Lutheran University, Rotary Club, Rotary International, Peace Community Center, and her many financial advisory clients who became her extended family and friends.
Faith and family were top priorities for Sandra. Throughout her life, she leaned on the Lord for guidance and strength. Sandra's pride and joy were her children and grandchildren. She was a ferocious Mother Bear, supporter and cheerleader of their many and varied activities including sports, music, scouts, and academics. Additionally, she loved and valued her close relationships with her sisters and extended family which she maintained by phone and travels.
Sandra was so energetic that everyone expected her to live to 100. She stayed active and engaged in her community, the world, and with her family to the end.
A memorial service will be conducted on Saturday, June 12, 2021, at 2:00 PM at Trinity Lutheran Church in Parkland, Washington. Funeral arrangements provided by Curnow Funeral Home of Sumner, Washington.
