    Sandy was a great lady. I enjoyed playing cards with her in our canasta group and having coffee with her at the frynpan for many years. She is at peace now. God bless you all!

    I met Sandy when we worked in the OB-Gyn department of the Yankton Clinic and then at the Yankton Medical Clinic. As was common with Sandy we became friends immediately. She always kept things interesting like the day she did a Rain Dance outside of Dr Thornton’s office window. She was always full of fun and ideas. Even though our paths eventually took different directions, we always kept in touch and every time we connected it was like we had just seen each other the day before. She was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother and always a friend to count on. I will miss her but always carry a part of her in my heart.
    Though we desire to be there, we will be live streaming her services during this challenging time.
    To Ron and all the family, you have Steve and my condolences and prayers for the peace of the Lord and her presence with Him to comfort you.
