Sandra's family, especially her grandchildren, were her greatest joy. Sandra's parents owned a resort in Minocqua, Wisconsin, as she was growing up and it became a lifelong favorite place of hers and her family's over the years. She loved to go to casinos and gamble. She would often stop by the casinos in Peoria, Illinois and Tomahawk, Wisconsin on her way to and from the resort. Sandra loved to play Bridge and had Bridge clubs in Wisconsin as well as in Ohio. She enjoyed being outside, especially while gardening. Sandra even could be seen gardening when she didn't feel well. She also enjoyed golfing and making friends at Walnut Grove, where her and her husband were members.
