Marjorie was born on Aug. 27, 1921, to Amy and Lawrence Clark. She married Leon Sandstoe, and they were blessed with a son, Dean. Marjorie spent most of her professional life working for Iowa-Illinois Gas & Electric. She always enjoyed the challenge that the job provided and the many wonderful friends she met there. Her personal life consisted of traveling with her husband and loving her family. Family and friends were always at the heart of her life. Marjorie was an intelligent, creative person who was willing to help others solve problems. Outings and travel with friends were a delight to her.

Society, a 50-year member of the Order of Eastern Star and a volunteer at the Putnam Museum for many years.
She is survived by her son, Dean (Nancy); grandson, Brad (Kim); great-granddaughter, Brooke; niece, Dorothy Stork (Bill); nephew, Glenn Whitman; and several great-nieces and great-nephews.
