Sandy was a proud graduate of Coventry High School, later moving to and residing in South Windsor for 50 years.

Sandy's legacy continues through her daughters, Tracy and husband John, Amy and son-in-law Mark, and Kelly and husband Derwin, who was caretaker for Sandy. Also left behind are her cherished grandchildren, Madison, Adam, Troy, Jake, Eddie, and Dylan. She is also survived by her brother, David and wife Pam, who she loved very dearly, numerous nieces and nephews, and her best friend, Paula Smith, who will remember her fondly. Sandy was predeceased by her brothers, John and William (Butch).
