I was fortunate to be a Theta at Butler and live with Sandy and Karen for a few years. I was very proud to be Sandy's Sorority Mother and friend. It's very sad to know she is gone. She lived a full life and contributed so much to so many and I'm thankful to have known her.

Sandy Donovan was a special sister in Kappa Alpha Theta at Butler University. I won't forget her infectious laugh and her addressing us by saying "You All".
I'm thankful to have known her. Diane Meyer Simon
