Sandy was such a lovely person/presence, all the time...I knew her as a fun, sweet and loving young Aunt. She was only 10 years older than me. I heard stories and saw photos of her as my Dad (Tom Mills)'s young sister. How he loved her and took her with him a lot; even on dates! I know she was a "caboose". But oh how she had a great family with her sisiters; Shirley and Nancy nearby always and her 4 beautiful children and all of theirs! Even the "Bickersons", Grandpa Tom and Grandpa Florence were such a great part of her/our family. And Bill with all his photos...keeping memories alive. Reunions that Mom (Bernie) had for all of you and we who moved away) And all of you Kenoshans! Sandy told me just recently how she spent time with her big brother at our home in Wheaton before she married. (Little red house)...Walking to town with 3 of us little ones (Me; Roxy, Tommy and Mikey), how Mom (Bernie) bought 3 blouses, told Sandy to hide them from Dad (Tom) and then let her choose one! And when we were little we got to join the whole crowd for Christmas. Kevin is the other amazing keeper of the photo memories...Once we were at Nancy's playing "Nurtz" and somehow Tommy Mills (brother) got paired with Grandma (Florence) and they started yelling at each other and got us laughing so hard! (they were both very slow!)
Polly and I talked about how Sandy kept us in the loop, including us and making us laugh.I Oh so many memories and I thought I had more time with our beautiful Sandy. Love to all of you, so much! Roxanne Mills Michael (Tom & Bernie's daughter)

I’ve posted a picture from my wedding 60 years ago. Sandy was a bridesmaid and she is standing next to our cousin Jim Mills. Living in Tucson, AZ I haven’t had much contact with Kenosha relatives, but Jim has always set up a cousins breakfast when I do visit. Sandy and Bill would come along with Nancy, Shirley, and Jim and his wife Carole. I am so grateful for those memories.

Just a few thoughts about my amazing Aunt Sandy,
Sandy was a constant, positive, loving presence throughout my whole life. No matter the circumstances good or bad, Sandy made sure she called me, wrote to me or visited me and always made me feel better. She Never missed one birthday and made most of my birthday cards herself. I’ve kept them all.
My earliest memories as a child, was being wheeled in my stroller by my mom and meeting up with Sandy wheeling Zach in his stroller. We’d all meet up and then walk to one of our houses for the afternoon, where mom and Sandy would talk until it was dark out and Zach and I would have our play date.
As I grew older, sleepovers at Sandy’s became a regular occasion. Being so far behind in age from my siblings, spending time at Sandys house was such a treat. There was Cindy to spend girly time with. Zach with whom I could play board games and watch the Muppets. Little Rachel to play with and feel like a big sister to. And adorable Jeff , whom I got to feed and attend to like a junior mom. And of course always a tons of little creatures, as pets, that I got to see and hold and experience. My love of animals grew out of those experiences. Even with all that going on at the house, Sandy always managed to have time to spend time talking just with me. Her attention and love showed thru and made it very special for me. The way she cared and loved shaped the way I wanted to be as an aunt myself, and when my nieces and nephew came along I tried to pattern my love for them after Sandy’s beautiful example. Even if I was not at Sandys house, my mom was on the phone with both her sister Sandy and Shirley daily, so there was always an opportunity to get in a “Hi to Sandy” and hear the latest family news.
As I grew into an adult and had a home of my own, then it was pool party time. The cousins would take turns hosting an afternoon of yummy treats, good conversation, laughter and of course being able to dip our feet into the small blow up kiddie swimming pool. It was tons of fun and lots of great memories. You never needed to ask if Sandy wanted to attend. If it had to do with any type of swimming, Sandy was in.
As the weather cooled, Sandy and Bill and their dog Lucy, would walk over to my home on Lincoln to visit. It became quite a frequent thing and we would visit on my back patio well into the night. Talking and laughing, until we had to wake up Lucy to get her to walk back home.
Even when I moved farther away Sandy still made regular visits to spend time with me in our gardens and of course taking a dip in the pool. Her visits were so special to me, even with the big family she had, she still took the time to spend some of her time with me.
We are so lucky, as a family, that so many of us keep in touch and have regular get togethers. All the picnics, Easters as a kid, summer outings, Halloweens, Christmases, and so on. Sandy was always a big part of those events. Family was everything to her and she looked forward to each and every opportunity to spend time with her whole extended family.
When my dad passed away, Sandy was an angel to my mom. She regularly called to invite her on outings, even if just to the store or Taco Bell. I know my mom was very grateful to Sandy for thinking of and including her.
Throughout her whole life Sandy put others first. The happiness of those she loved, made her happy and she did everything she could to meet that goal. Being a fellow insomniac, Sandy and I would talk on the phone for hours, many times way late into the night. Our conversations would have a huge range of topics, but her kids, Cindy, Zach, Rachel and Jeff, their spouses Dan, Catherine and Rob and all her grandkids, Hayley, Hannah, Alexa, Escher, Robbie, Lucas, Maeghan and Isabel and Aryana was the topic she loved the best. I got to hear all about how proud she was of all of them and in her excitement and tone she showed me how much she loved them all.
Sandy was a beautiful, kind, thoughtful, selfless woman, who showed so much love and care for all of us who were lucky enough to be loved by her. I will miss her dearly as I know we all will.

I love you Aunt Sandy,
