Sandra’s family was especially grateful for the loving cooperation of the Stanford medical staff in allowing Sandra and her family to enjoy Sandra’s  last days in a beautiful garden with sunshine, flowers, lovely trees moving in the breezes, and hummingbirds flitting above her bed.

Surviving are her husband, John Pappas; daughters, Andrea and Kristie; father, Harry Wheat of Crescent City; brother, Wayne Wheat and Tisha Swortwood of Indian Wells; three nephews, Calvin and Ian Wheat, of Indian Wells,  James Keeling, of Crescent City;  niece, Marie Eggen of Sacramento; sisters-in-law, Martha Keeling and husband, Jim, Angela Wis­dom and husband, Bill, and multitudes of loving friends.

On Sunday, May 23, a celebration of Sandi’s life will be held at the Crescent City Cultural Center, 1001 Front Street, Crescent City from  2 to 5 p.m.  “In honor of Sandi, friends are encouraged to wear bright, casual clothing and flip-flops.”

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Sandra’s name to the Del Norte Scholarship Foun­dation, 275 Elk Valley Road, Crescent City, CA 95531.
