Sandy was born on December 2, 1964, in Schuyler, NE, to Milo and Ann (Ritzdorf) Mundil, and grew up on a farm south of Clarkson, NE. She attended Bishop Neumann Catholic School (now called St. John Neumann Catholic School) and then graduated in 1983 from Clarkson High School. Afterwards, she attended Lincoln School of Commerce and received a degree in Travel and Tourism. Upon graduation she began her career in the travel industry; the last 36 years were with Travel and Transport. Her position not only carried her across the United States, but Europe, Asia, and Australia as well.
Sandy was very goal-driven and gave her full attention to whatever she wanted to accomplish. As a member of the Waverly Jaycees, these traits helped her become elected President from 1988-1989, and then was elected Nebraska State Jaycee President from 1993-1994. Her involvement in these organizations developed many lifelong friendships.
On October 16, 1999, Sandy married the love of her life, Dale Krupka, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Schuyler, Nebraska. To this union she was blessed with her two children, Anna, and Tanner, who she adored and was very proud.
Sandy loved to laugh and was always quite entertaining. It was never dull when she was around! She enjoyed her girl’s weekends, crochet, dancing, and baking; especially Kolaches. One of her favorite things was traveling with her family. She took them on so many adventures, Anna to Europe, Tanner to San Diego, and family trips to Disney World. She also spoiled her husband with trips to Park City UT, Maui, HI, and Scottsdale, AZ, for a surprise birthday.
Sandy is survived by her husband of 23 years, Dale Krupka; children, Anna Krupka and Tanner Krupka; brothers, Michael (Cathy) Mundil of Howells, NE, and David (Kimberley) Mundil of Raymond, NE; brother-in-law, Sean Clough of Lincoln; many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Milo, and Ann Mundil; sister, Betty; maternal and fraternal grandparents.
Sandy is so loved and will be missed by all.
