She was born 1/16/1958 at Luther Hospital in Eau Claire, WI, and was the daughter of Leila Geer and Elmer Stelzer.

Sandra grew up in Chippewa Falls, WI and attended Chippewa Falls Senior High School, as well as some college courses at Chippewa Valley Technical College.

She married Norris W. Rush in 1977 and though they later divorced, they remained close.

Sandra met Randy Alan Albertson in 2012, and the two married on 12/24/2018. Randy was a rock for her and a special part of her life.

Sandra worked at several local nursing homes over the years as a Certified Nursing Assistant and took pride in providing the best care possible to those she served.

She enjoyed collecting fabric and sewing machines, sewing quilts, cooking pancakes with her grandchildren, and gardening. Her many flower gardens were a sight to behold! We will never forget all the time spent walking outside with her admiring her flower gardens. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends, and especially cherished the time she spent with her grandchildren.

Sandra regularly attended Maple Grove Bible Church and thought of its members as family. She loved reading and listening to Bible passages and sharing her faith and love of Jesus whenever she could.
