Sandy had a flair for taking the ordinary and making something exceptional. When she lived in Ritzville, she opened a boutique selling Hobe jewelry and Merle Norman cosmetics. She also enjoyed playing golf and bridge. After moving to Priest Lake at Elkins Resort, she redecorated cottages and opened a gift shop. She loved to entertain and made her guests feel welcomed!

Sandy was such a classy woman! We all were more poised after spending time with her. We will carry her memory in our hearts forever!
