Loving mother of Cindy Ross (Ward) and Ken James III (Brandy); devoted grandmother of Devin, Kelie (Davey), Krystin (Doug), Adriana (Zak), Conner and Christian and Ava and Samuel James; great-grandmother of Levi and Niko; dear sister of Catherine Moore (Frederick) and Terry Kaczmarczyk (Cyndi); former spouse of Ken James II (Teresa); aunt, cousin, and friend to many.
Preceded in death by her parents, Isadore and Betty Kaczmarczyk (O’Brosky); and her brother, Robert Kaczmarczyk.
The family would like to thank Randy Leitch, her best friend, and Marissa and Isiah Leitch who took incredible care of Sandy these past few years in her struggle with Alzheimer’s.
Sandy was a loving and patient individual, known for her creativity, sassiness, and generosity. She dedicated her time to serving others, having been a Girl Scout Leader for her daughter’s troop, classroom mom, and a caregiver for her nieces and nephew. Sandy’s talent for baking was renowned, with her exquisite wedding and celebration cakes, as well as beautifully decorated cookies for every holiday. She found joy in hosting Easter egg hunts and Halloween Trick or Treat Night at her house each year.
In addition to her baking skills, Sandy enjoyed playing softball and bowling. She made friends easily on the teams she played on and always brought a fun and spontaneous energy to gatherings. Sandy had various part-time jobs throughout her life, using her earnings to shower her children, grandchildren, and nieces and nephews with thoughtful gifts. Her patient way of teaching kids helped them refine family recipes, crafts, and sewing projects. Sandy found pleasure in the simple things in life, such as tending to her garden and creating a tranquil pond for fish to enjoy. She embraced each moment and approached life with a positive attitude, making her a favorite relative at parties. Though she possessed a stubborn streak, Sandy’s loving nature always shone through.
A Celebration of Life will be held in early 2024 to honor Sandy’s memory and the impact she had on the lives of those around her.
