She cherished her role as a wife, mother, sister and loyal friend and loved spending time entertaining family and friends. She especially enjoyed being with her grandchildren and watching them participate in their various sports.

Sandra also loved giving back and supporting the local community. She served as a Deacon of First Presbyterian Church, co-chair of the WVPT auction with her husband, was active in Harrisonburg Junior Woman's Club and volunteered with numerous local charities. In addition to giving back, she loved traveling with family and friends and was always ready to try a new sport.
