Our family regrets to announce but humbly accepts that Sandra Gladden of Pleasant Grove Utah has returned to her heavenly home at the young age of 69.

Sandra has also lived in, Orem, Provo, American Fork and Pleasant Grove Utah; Concord, California; Crown Point, Indiana and Chicago, Illinois. She graduated from Concord High School in California.

Sandra loves to crochet, play games, decorate cakes, do many crafts and quilt, as well as has a love for animals especially dogs. She loves doing Humanitarian work. Sandra made several hats and scarfs for the homeless and for Orphanages in Central America.
