Born in Bremen, on April 29, 1966, Sandra was the daughter of Anthony R. King and Shirley A. (Schaetzle) Batty. She graduated from Triton High School with the class on 1984. She received her BSN from Ancilla College.
Sandra worked for Michiana Behavioral Health Center in Plymouth, until she was unable to due to the cancer.
She loved fishing, antiquing and her dog, Nelson. She could always be found at Goodwill shopping and finding great deals. When she had the chance for vacation, Sandra would travel to Florida and enjoyed having her feet in the sand. She cherished time with her family and adored her grandchildren. Sandra never met a person that did not love her, and she was a “Mom” to many of her son Ryan’s friends and a mentor to children at the Behavioral Health Center.
