Born 28 August 1932 in Knox City, Texas. She and her family escaped the dustbowl for California. Shortly after graduating from Mt. Diablo High in Concord, CA shew met her marine for eternity, Donald Geddes and tied the knot on 16 February 1952. They eventually made their home in Sonoma raising Donna, Margaret, Patrick, Dan, Lynn, Barbara, and Sharon. Don and Sandra had a yearlong adventure in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico with the kids and another year in Xi’an, China teaching English and the gospel when the kids were grown. She had a kitchen wall filled with plates that had been collected by her and her family from all over the world, nourished thousands with Meals on Wheels, created harmony with the Sonoma Valley Chorale, read tens of thousands of books, was devoted to the 49ers and even more so to her Savior. She lived by the motto “Work as if everything depends on you, pray as if everything depends on God.” And she did to the end. She was peacefully reunited with Don on 2 May 2023, leaving behind a legacy of a good heart and no-nonsense attitude along with a quilt for each or her 7 children, 24 Grandchildren, 38 great-grandchildren and 5 great-great-grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on Saturday 20th of May at 11:00AM 16280 La Grama Dr. Sonoma.
