Sandra Lee Aldrich died Sunday April 18, 2021 after a long battle with brain cancer for the past

1 ½ years. 

Sandra was born to Don Gervais and Julie Livingood on July 7, 1975. Sandra went to school in Remer and graduated in 1993. She went on to Itasca Community College where she met Jesse and they wed on June 7, 1995.  From there Jesse and Sandra went to Crown College and eventually moved to McGregor in the winter of 1997. In 1998 Jesse and Sandra became parents to Hannah, with Jacob arriving in 2000, Maciah in 2002, and Andrew in 2007. Sandra’s first love was Jesus. She wanted nothing more than to follow Him in every aspect of her life. That love of Jesus flowed through her and poured out into her husband and four children.  That love didn’t stop there.  She loved people, and was always praying, encouraging, and blessing those she came in contact with. 

Sandra is survived by her husband of 25 years, Jesse; daughter, Hannah; sons: Jacob, Maciah, Andrew; parents, Don and Mary Gervais; sisters, Salome Meyers (Josh), Jessica Johnson (Craig); brothers, James and Tim Tabaka; brother, Kevin Greski; brother, Rick Monroe; sisters, Trish and Kim Greski; sister, Robin Monsos; along with nephews, nieces and many friends. 

Sandra was preceded in death by mother, Julie Livingood and sister Rachelle Gervais.

Sandra’s golden light will shine brightly, continuing to burn for generations to come, changing lives one person at a time. 

We love you forever!
