Sandra attended Central School, Jefferson School, and Preston High School. As she left High School before graduating she later received her GED.
Sandra had a close friend, the late Coralie Bitters, that she liked to do things with. They both were cute girls who like to find cute boys. Dragging Main Street in Preston you were sure to meet some new friends and cute boys. Eager to get on with her life she married DeMar Maughan on Nov 5 1970 in Preston Idaho. They were the proud parents of children James Michael, Cathy Ann, and Brandon Jeffery(BJ) Maughan. DeMar and Sandra were later divorced and she remained single for many years.

Sandra had various jobs in her life. She worked at the Snooty Cat Cafe, Presto Products, and Walmart. Sandra loved animals and they loved her back. She loved her dogs Zeus, Candy, and Mandy. Her very special companion Zoey crossed over the rainbow bridge a few years ago and Sandra missed her terribly.
Halloween was her favorite holiday and she delighted in putting up the scary decor. She liked to wear her witch mask or wolfman mask and scare the little kids. Her nieces and nephews were the recipients of large bags of candy that she prepared just for them. She loved shopping and buying things for others. She liked pretty things, flowers, especially roses, putting up solar lights in her gardens, and playing games on her phone. Cookouts were something she enjoyed, as well as making crafts, yard sales with her sister and nieces.
She enjoyed spending time with her children. She loved the time her daughter Cathy Ann spent with her. She was so proud of her sons James and BJ. She was able to spend some time with them during the summer of 2021 and she looked forward to that time for months. She will be greatly missed by those who love her.
