Sandy Day, 68

Sandy Day, 68, of Big Cedar Lake was born May 10, 1943 to the late Delbert and Eliene Wandrey. She was a high school sweetheart, wife, mom, referee, healer, organizer, motivator and the wind in our familyís sail.

Sandy was welcomed into the eternal C Fleet on Jan. 1, 2012. Once again A 16 will be leading the way. She was a top competitor all her years sailing with her father and continued the tradition with a skinny crew she found when they were teenagers. Turned out he was the perfect guy for the job, not missing a beat he married her to keep the position. From that moment on Roland and Sandy Day sailed through life by each otherís side. Relinquishing the helm briefly to give birth to their son Bradley. Beginning a family and adding to a lifetime of memories in their dream home nestled next to Cedar Lake, the serendipitous meeting place of skipper and crew.

Sandy is survived by her husband of 48 years, Roland, her son Bradley (Cheri) and a granddaughter, Emma.

The family will greet relatives and friends for a period of visitation on Monday, Jan. 9, 2012 from 4-6 p.m. at the Schmidt Funeral Home in Jackson.
