Sandi was born on Dec. 16, 1940, in Aledo, the daughter of Samuel and Charlotte Johnson Sharer.
She was a graduate of UTHS Class of 1959. Sandi never married and always said "she was an unclaimed jewel." She had worked for John Deere, retiring from John Deere Health Care after 35 years of service. She had volunteered on her 45th and 50th class reunion committee and had volunteered for Pathway Hospice in the early 1980s. She also volunteered for the Essley-Noble Museum & Mercer County Historical Society, where she sat on the board of directors for four years. She taught knitting and cross-stitch.
Survivors include her sister, Diana (Glenn) Camp, Antioch, Ill.; nephews, Jon Camp and Marc (Rebecca) Camp; and great-nieces and -nephew, Elizabeth, Christian and E.J.
The family would like to thank Sandi's friend, Leona, who helped her so much during her sickness. She is preceded in death by her parents and brother, Robert Franklin Sharer.
