Sandy was born on October 12, 1952 in Council Bluffs, Iowa, the first child of Rolland and Dorothy Wright. Growing up on a farm in Crescent, Iowa, she loved nature and animals and, especially, horseback riding.
After graduating from Underwood, Iowa High School in 1970, she began working as an artist for Northwestern Bell Yellow Pages in Omaha. Sandy enjoyed many activities: traveling, photography, and painting, and time spent with friends and family.
Sandy married Robert Dietrich on June 11, 1983, making their home in Omaha. She retired from the phone company after the birth of their daughter, Sara, in 1986. Sandy loved being a mother, homemaker, and school volunteer.
Sandy was overjoyed to become a grandmother to grandson, Caden M. Huebert. She loved him very much and he always brought a smile to her face.
Always with a smile ready for anybody, Sandy continued to love God and Jesus, family and friends, nature, photography, her flower and plant gardens, yard work, her church family and her chair yoga class friends and staff at Lakeside Wellness Center.
I am Sandra’s cousin on her Dad’s side of the family. We visited together often as children when we would take a drive out to Uncle Rolland’s and Aunt Dorothy’s farm. They had lots of baby chicks from time to time and Sandra and Patti would invite me in to play with the chicks. Sandra was always so soft spoken and I was the opposite! I have such fond memories of those days. I’m so sad for her family and happy at the same time for Sandra because she’s in no more pain and with family who preceded her in death. May she Rest In Peace.
