Sandra loved the outdoors.  She enjoyed tending to her fish pond, vegetable and beautiful flower gardens. During the summer months Sandra loved the fishing and camping trips in northern Minnesota with her husband Tom.   Sandra was a wonderful cook and baker and volunteered many hours for Braham Pie Day and the Chisago County Fair. Sandra was an accomplished seamstress, making items for church baptisms and confirmations.  She was active in countless groups and activities at Saints Peter & Paul Catholic Church.  Sandra was a very social person and enjoyed visiting with her many friends and family.  She was a truly thoughtful person and would always remember birthdays or special occasions. Each handwritten card made the recipient feel special by including comments unique to them. Sandra always sent a card of thanks for gifts or kindnesses extended to her or Tom. Most of all Sandra loved her husband Tom.  She will be remembered as a gentle, kindhearted, supportive, faithful, genuine, and down to earth person. Sandra will be dearly missed.

    What a shock to hear of Sandy’s passing. Sandy was a part of my life as far back as I can remember: first as a playmate, friend, and neighbor and then as a classmate. Johnny and Shirley, her parents, were close friends of my parents. In 1953 Sandy and I began our school careers on the same day in our Benton County country school and graduated the same day from Foley High School in 1965. Through the years she was a loyal friend: so kind, patient, and forgiving. Never boastful, she shared her talents quietly and generously. Tom, may the God who gave you the gift of Sandy comfort and sustain you now and in the days ahead. God bless the memory of Sandra Nelson Danger.

    Tom, we were so shocked and saddened to get the news about Sandra. She was such a gentle spirit and we enjoyed knowing her over these many years. We’ve always looked forward to our visits around the campfire. She’ll be with us in spirit at future campouts.

    You will be in our thoughts and prayers. You’ve had a tough road to travel of late and we pray you will be comforted by God and your family. Be seeing you soon.

    Sandy, by relation, was my husband Mark Lofstrom’s cousin. His father Victor Lofstrom and Sandy’s mother Shirley were brother & sister and grew up in Minneapolis’ Powderhorn Park neighborhood. Sandy was Mark and his sister Joan’s last living cousin. Sandy always remembered our birthdays with a fun card and hastily written update on her and Tom’s life. I marveled at her endless energy to do all she did. My daughter Betsy had just received a birthday card from Sandy for her 27th birthday. When my girls, Betsy & Sara, were young, Sandy also included $5 in their birthday cards. When Sandy’s sister Charlotte passed, Sandy made sure Charlotte’s will was executed as stated.On the deer-hunting opener, Sandy organized yearly turkey dinners & beds for her good friends, Carol & John Homblad, my husband and his buddy Brad Johnson. I haven’t seen Sandy very often lately, my loss. Her lively eyes and stories made each visit memorable however short they were. Sandy had a well-lived life and, as others have said, will be deeply missed. She was a gift from God to all she encountered. Now she is with her dear mother, father and sister once more.

    It is sincere sadness when I heard of Sandy’s passing . She was the best and most reliable substitute teacher called on to cover my science classes in Mora. I knew my they were in good hands when called to cover my classes. After my retirement I looked forward to conversation with her at Church and other activities in Braham. She will be missed.
    My condolences to her family

    Sincere sympathy to Tom and family, Sandy was always so fun & pleasant to visit with. God has her in his care now.

    Tom, I am so sorry to hear of Sandy’s passing. She was a wonderful, loving and caring person. Please know that I am keeping you in my thoughts… Take Care!

    Sandy was my first cousin and my classmate through all 12 grades. After Sandy married, I was not living much in Minnesota, so I didn’t see her that often. However, we got closer in recent years through our interest in family history. Sandy was so modest and unassuming in many ways. That was so endearing. She seemed so happy when she could be with her cousins at various events. So sad to have her leave us this young. Tom, I will continue to pray that God will provide the comfort and healing that you need to experience after this great “loss.”

    Tom,
    I am so very sorry for your loss. I can hardly believe it, just had such a nice visit with Sandy at Laurie’s retirement party. She appeared so well. What a difficult road it has been for you in the last few years, and now this. I would like to visit with you when you are ready to receive visitors.Just let me know
    My thoughts are with you
    Angela
