Sandi was preceded in death by her parents and younger brother, Danny.
Her family migrated to Palmer, Alaska in 1949, settling in Fairbanks in 1950. She enjoyed the beauty of Alaska’s wilderness, spending her time hunting and fishing with her brother.

In 1973, she moved from Fairbanks to Washington State, settling in a career with The Boeing Company where she worked as a riveter and mechanic until her retirement in 1993.
In 1989 Sandi remarried David Schultz, Sr. of Washington. After his retirement in 1997, Sandi and David moved and settled in Omak, Wash.
Ever since, they have enjoyed fishing, camping, and traveling together. Sandi was passionate about her quilting, gardening and spoiling her husband and their nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild, Justyn McIntyre.
