Sandy was born November 7, 1940 in Warren, to David Strock and Dorothy (Anderson) Strock Bauman.
Sandra was a 1958 graduate of Warren G. Harding High School and a 1962 graduate of Saint Luke’s School of Nursing in Cleveland.

Sandra worked as a Registered Nurse in hospitals in New York and Illinois, before moving back to Ohio.

She worked there for 26 years until her retirement in 2005. She enjoyed gardening, reading, sewing, dancing and cooking. Sandy will be remembered for her easy laughter, beautiful smile, her kindness and compassion to others, and her loving heart.
