Obituary: Sandra M. Muller (Dec. 17, 1946 – March 22, 2012)

Sandra Muller, 65, of Brookings, passed away March 22, 2012, in Grants Pass.

Sandra was born Dec. 17, 1946, in San Francisco. She grew up between there and Crescent City, attending schools in both locations.

She married Doug Costa in 1964; they had one son, Kurt. Mr. Costa would precede her in death.

Sandra met Frank Muller while living in San Anselmo, Calif. The two fell in love and were married there on May 12, 1990. They moved to Napa, Calif., and then later to American Canyon, Calif., where Sandra worked as a co-manager of a Hallmark store. She and Frank would often take trips to Crescent City to visit her sister, who would in turn take them on drives to Brookings.


They decided to retire to Brookings and moved here in 2005. She was a member of Brookings Elks Lodge 1934. Frank and Sandra were also both very active members of the Brookings-Harbor Red Shirts. From sewing helmet liners for soldiers, to helping with any fundraiser, parade or festival, to writing letters, doing mailings and even wearing red every Friday, their house was always abuzz with Red Shirt activities. Sandra was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. She was a very caring person; her generosity had far-reaching effects on many of her family and friends. She will be missed dearly and remembered fondly.

Survivors include Frank Muller, her husband of 22 years, of Brookings; son Kurt Costa of Petaluma, Calif.; daughter Allison Muller of Napa; granddaughters Andrea Muller and Makayla Costa; sisters Barbara Batt of Jacksonville, and Jeannette Mitola of Crescent City; nephews Jeff and Gary Mitola; niece Cheryl Tackett; brother-in-law Dave Costa.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Brookings Harbor Red Shirts, 17247 Lumber View Road, Brookings, OR 97415.

A celebration of Sandra’s life will be at 4 p.m. Saturday, April 21, 2012, at Redwood Memorial Chapel, 1020 Fifield St., Brookings.
