Sandra Kay, daughter of Roy and Dolly (Blowers) Landphere was born February 8, 1949, in Minot, ND. This is where she grew up and received her education, graduating from high school in 1967. Sandy was united in marriage and her husband was then drafted into the Vietnam War while she was pregnant and expecting their first child. She then returned home to live while he was away. After his discharge from the military, they made their home in Minot. Sandy was a homemaker and working miscellaneous jobs to raise money for home improvements. Their family spent many summers at her family cabin at Strawberry Lake.
In early 2000, Sandy moved to Aberdeen to be close to her daughter, DeeAnn and family. When she was relaxing, she liked to read, do puzzles, and always liked to play Bingo.
