Sandra Petterson Hammond Kohntopp
Sandra loved collecting Angels, had a terrific smile and made the best pickles in the world. We miss her a lot.
She worked hard on the family farm in Idaho and later in banking and accounting. She raised 2 daughters and was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, homemaker and friend. She enjoyed cooking, sewing and serving her family members. Whatever hardship life gave her, she faced it with a cheerful attitude and determination.
Sandra was no stranger to health challenges, battling colitis from age 13, then having an iliostomy at age 25. She lived life with grace and was a support to many facing colon surgeries. When diagnosed with breast cancer at age 60, she met the challenge with courage and dignity. She encouraged and inspired others and became involved in Relay for Life, a tradition which her family and friends have carried on in her name. She lost her battle with a secondary intestinal cancer at age 62. She is greatly missed by her family and friends.
