A graduate of Corvallis High, Sandy met the love of her life, Jack Moon, and was married on December 7, 1956. She began her married life as an army wife & stay at home mom. After Jack's time in the service, the followed Jack's work through much of Oregon. Sandy enjoyed being a stay at home mom to their 6 children for 14 years, making many memories. She enjoyed camping, water skiing, horseback riding, baking, sewing, singing and dancing, teaching Sunday school and so much more. Sandy lost the love of her life in 1970 and began working at the Cannery in Corvallis, moving to Jackson Meat Company in Philomath and later working for Campbell's Cleaners for 12 years before moving to her final job at Western Pulp where she retired 20 years ago. She's been a member of the Philomath community for the last 44 years.

Much of Sandy's retirement was spent enjoying her grandchildren and great grandchildren, playing BINGO and Solitaire, doing puzzles and more. To many Sandy could be known as a Proverbs 31 woman.
