Many other relatives held a special place in her heart including her godchildren Dan Bognar and Scott Kozlowski. Faithful friends include: Diane Kirklewski, Frieda Czerwinski, Penny Waterman, Maddie Muszynski, and others who kept in touch. Thank you all and those we neglected to name for your support during the difficult times since Sandy suffered a stroke in 2017.
Sandy found purpose in helping others. She kept busy crocheting beautiful afghans which she gifted to family members. She was a whiz at math and loved to skunk opponents in cribbage. Mom won big from time to time playing the slots at the casinos in the Midwest and Vegas. She treasured memories of the cruise Rudy arranged to Alaska in 2008. We’ll never forget the family trip to Florida and the Bahamas in 2012!
Mom was always there with a homemade dish for family parties. Her specialties were Strawberry or Pistachio fluff and Veggie Pizza. Her grandkids loved her Kraft Mac and Cheese (the same recipe their moms made, but somehow better!). She was the best babysitter, listener, and hug giver.
She enjoyed attending musical productions at local high schools and traveling Broadway shows in Milwaukee. In lieu of flowers, please consider memorials to the United Performing Arts Center in her name. Sandy retired from M&I Bank in Bay View, where she worked as a personal banker. She was a long-term resident of Oak Creek and a faithful member of St. Matthew’s parish.
Sandy resided in an assisted living facility since suffering from a stroke in 2017. She appreciated the personalized care and companionship of special caregivers Laura, Angel, Connie, Chris, Nina, and Tony. Special thanks to Dr. Peter Leonovicz, Dr. Carol Potts, and Dr. David Munoz who were compassionate and went above and beyond supporting both mom and our family. It’s been an especially difficult time given the Covid-19 pandemic for those requiring advanced care.
In memory of Sandy, please reach out to someone who could use a friendly visit or call. Thank you all for your love and support.
Visitation will be held on Saturday, September 26, 2020, from 11:00 AM – 12:45 PM with a service at 1:00 PM at Krause Funeral Home 12401 West National Avenue, New Berlin, Wisconsin.
