Sandy was happily married to Mike Voshake for almost 52 years at the time of her death.

Sandy always loved being outdoors, going for long walks, spending time with family and friends, playing cards, shopping, traveling and having fun. Every job Sandy held was focused around supporting and helping others. She was an avid volunteer supporting the American Cancer Society in various locations she lived and most recently for the Ronald McDonald House in Las Vegas. She cherished her newest role of being an amazing Nana to her two grandchildren.

A celebrations of Sandy’s life will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the American Cancer Society.

There are not enough words that can capture the wonderful loving Sandy Voshake. She was such a bright light to all who had the privilege of knowing her. She made us and everyone feel so special. We always felt such joy being part of the moments watching her with Mike, family and especially Logan and Bradley. She was such a great nana.
She will be so missed , but always treasured.
Sending much sympathy, love and hugs to all her wonderful family. Sandy’s spirit lives on in them.

There were 9 cousins in our Altrogge family.....I was the eldest, nine years senior to Sandy. My memories of Sandy were as a young girl...
cute, bright and very, very confident....

Dear Mike, Jill, Jennifer and Family,
Annette and I extend our heartfelt sympathies. I remember our days at Union Camp and our first introduction to Mike’s family. Sandy’s smile and gentle way of carrying herself and caring for you all stood out. I will keep those memories close. God bless Sandy and you all. Much love.
