Sandy was born Feb. 20, 1936, in Cedar Rapids. Her parents were Jerry and Leona Spryncl. Her parents and a sister, JoAnn Dyal, preceded her in death.

Sandy enjoyed working with people as a nurse's aide and later as a pharmacy tech at Osco and the Medicine Shop.
People were drawn to Sandy, her sweet personality and friendly smile. Sandy will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
