Sandy was a Christian of the Baptist faith believing in the Lord as her savior. During her working years she was employed as a manager at the Circle K gas station in St. Louis MO.

Gambling was another of her pastimes, as was having family gatherings. Nothing made her happier than the time she spent with her soul mate, Larry. Each of her family members held a special place in her heart, just as she did in ours.
