Sandra also enjoyed watching The Chicago Cubs, The Chicago Bears, and NASCAR; Sandra loved watching her soap operas too. Above all else, Sandra loved her family; she will be greatly missed by anyone fortunate enough to have known her. Especially the squirrels that lived near her house, whom Sandra would feed from her hand.
