My Dearest Cousin Sandy, one of the strongest, bravest people I know! ALWAYS so positive and uplifting… resilient. Always with a joke or a laugh… A true optimist. Great personality… So loving and giving to others… A true philanthropist. I have so many great memories as your younger cousin and always looked up to you. I was in such shock and deeply saddened when I first heard of your passing but now I’ve come to terms that the heavens are just LUCKIER than we are… Here’s to the KRUCK LUCK forever. Love you, Sandy, Mike, Donna, my Dear Aunt Sharon and all the best wishes to Terry and 2nd cousin Sarah xo My heart goes out to you. God bless you all!

The first time I met Sandy was back in 2004. She needed Admin Assistant. she reaches out to Dwight Ferguson he was the Director Food Service Operation back in 1998, Mr. Dwight Ferguson came by at Galley 535 to see me and asked me if I could support Sandy for Admin needs. So I said who’s Sandy Johannes Dwight said …. Oh you’ll find out once you meet with her today. Mind you it was the same day Dwight asked me to go and meet Sandy……he said you ‘re not going to regret it (Meg). So I did and meet with Sandy and introduce myself. The next day I report to her she had my desk cubicle all nice and set for me to do work … I was overwhelm she did all that for me …….. then she said!!!!!!!!!! you do realize this is your new department. And I said nope I did not. Dwight did not mention anything to me this will be permanent, Then Sandy looked at me and said you don’t want to worked for me and I said of course I do. I was her Admin until she left me  . Sandy took another position at corporate so she can be closer to her home. I was happy for her. I didn’t realize she was driving two hours each day to come to worked. Sandy- did not stop reaching out to me. Every chance she gets to come down to visit Great Lakes for Safety she always ensured she see me before she exit the building. Happy I had the opportunity to worked for a great Leader. She always had that caring looks on her and always value our mission her at Great Lakes. The last conversation Sandy and I had was the last week of August and I told her I was going on PTO starting September 12-16, then she said perfect when you get back call me and we can meet for lunch. This was my last words to her. I will truly miss her so much. she inspired me to keep pushing forward. Sandy was very professional and a great leader and always caring to support our mission and her staffs. Rest in Peace Boss Lady-

I worked with Sandy when we started the Goodwill Food Service Contract at Great Lakes Naval base in 1998. She was my my Safety Officer on the contract and a friend. She was very professional and a great leader. Over the years, we shared many conversations about "family" and her life with Goodwill. Sandy touched many lives, and she will be dearly missed!

To Sandy’s family and friends, First I am so sorry for your loss, Sandy was one of the sweetest, most genuine people I have ever met. I had the privilege of having her as my boss for almost 4 years. She loved and talked about 3 things most during our time together. Her love for her family, her faith, and her passion for Goodwill’s mission. Her eyes lit up whenever she spoke of her family, activities she was doing at church, or anyone in her department. She was the mama bear of our department and treated each of us like her children. She taught me so much over the years, not necessarily about work but more about life. She worked so hard and cared so much, it was infectious and it made others around her get to her level. She will truly be missed and I hope for healing for her family during this tough time. Thank you wouldn’t be enough for all you did for me over the last 4 years. Until we meet again Sandy, the world lost a true light.
