We loved Sandy so much. We took her for her last night out for our monthly card club last month. We could see she was struggling.
She was a trooper and played 9 rounds of our game. This was not the way it usually went. More time than not, she won. We always said it was because she was the only one not drinking a cocktail.
Not having her at our next card club will be really hard.
Love from Pat and Deann

Dear Leroy and Family, so sorry to hear about the passing of your beloved Sandy. So many fond memories of our next door neighbors at Summit Lake for decades and her kind words from our lakeside decks. God bless Sandy in Heaven.
Love and thoughts, Bill, Angie and Paul Taylor
Hi Spielbauer Family, long time no see. Sending my condolences regarding your mom and wife. You might remember me from Ida street 60 years ago. Kenny and I were good friends and were born on the same day. I had hopes of stopping by the funeral but didn’t realize it would be in Antigo, so work will keep me from getting up north. I think of you all each time I drive by Clovis Grove to see our old houses. Sandra is now an angel watching over you all, as my dad is. Hugs. Jeff Catlin
Dear LeRoy and family, we are so sorry to see the passing of Sandra. It was an honor to get to know you both at the Vet picnic's. All our love and prayers.
