Ermoline was one of six children born to her parents. She met her husband Wayne and they married February 22,1945. Their 75th anniversary was celebrated with a beautiful party at their residence.
The couple started their family in Porterville and then moved to Long Beach in 1953. Sandy worked for the City of Long Beach Gas Department for 30 years. She was active in the Long Beach community and was such a gracious hostess and loved to be surrounded by family and friends. She was loving and generous and lived life to the fullest. Wayne and Sandy traveled the world and loved sharing their experiences with family and friends.
In 1980 Wayne and Sandy built a home in Canyon Lake to stay on the weekends until they moved in full time upon retirement. The Sands got involved in a number of Community clubs and enjoyed the golf course. Sandy loved playing bridge and bunco. Her favorite times were when the family came to stay at the house and water ski at the first light of dawn.
Sandy was beautiful inside and out and dedicated to her family. She was an amazing wife,mother,mother-in-law,grandma and great grandma. She will be greatly missed but her legacy will live on. Thank you Ermoline for the precious memories.
