After she passed away she moved with a family who had a daughter (Kris) that was the same age as Sandy who also had Down Syndrom. They spent many happy days together going to school in Elma, IA. They enjoyed camping, swimming, and walking their dogs. She spent some time with her sister (Phyllis) and brother (Steve). Sandy then moved to Opportunity Village in one of the cottages where she met many new friends, she liked working in the shop several hours a day, went on field trips, picnics, and was very active in the Special Olympics where she won many medals. She liked to pack her suitcase and go with her aunt Pauline for the weekend. She then moved to the duplex in 1998 where she had full-time staff care. She loved looking at photos, magazine’s, watching television and going to McDonald’s for Strawberry Malts. Aunt Pauline spent many hours with her playing games and sending her cards. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her. Sandy is survived by her sister, Phyllis (Henry) Godfredson of Colorado Springs, CO and a brother, Steve (Nancy) of North Carolina, many uncles, aunts, cousins and friends.
