Sandra Jean Mahoney was born December 6, 1946, in Rochester, MN, to Edward J and Caroline J Mahoney (Hoyer).
She was the oldest of three children. She attended John Marshall High School and Community College in Rochester.
Sandy had two children and made her home in Plymouth, MN. For many years, she enjoyed working as a graphic arts professional at Circuit Science in Plymouth, MN.
Sandy moved to Howard Lake, MN, in the late eighties. She lived and worked in the Howard Lake, Cokato, and Dassel areas for the remainder of her life.
Sandy was charismatic, vibrant, and beautiful. She was fun, a bit crazy, generous, and a friend to everyone. She was also a strong, sassy, and fiercely independent woman.
She was full of life and enjoyed watching movies, listening to music, cooking, baking, playing board games, and spending time with her grandchildren.
One of Sandyís love languages was food. She was an excellent cook who showed her love and care by bringing food or bread to family and friends or cooking a grandchild their favorite dish.

Sandy is now at peace with the Lord. She is reunited in Heaven with her parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and her beloved dogs.
