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.
