Sandra T. Wrench, age 78, resident of Kansas City, MO, formerly of Ft. Scott, KS, passed away on Friday, March 29, 2019, at home.
She was born to Emma Perry of Plymouth, Massachusetts on November 28, 1940.
Sandra, who went by the name of Sandy, was adopted at a young age and was raised by a group of nuns in SF Harbor N.Y.
Sandy began her formal education at Tuller School of Tucson, Arizona. She continued her education and graduated from the University of Arizona, where she received her bachelor’s degree in Theater and Drama.
Later, Sandy attended Fort Scott Community College and received her nursing RN degree.
Sandy had a heart for working with children and a passion for building the future leaders of tomorrow. She expressed that passion through her professions as a principal in Anchorage, Alaska, a teacher in Westbury, New York, and a Deputy Juvenile Officer in Kansas City, Missouri.
After her tenure as a Deputy Juvenile Officer, Sandy and the love of her life, Morris, moved to Arizona where Sandy was a Registered Assessment Nurse for the State of Arizona. She held that position for ten years until she retired and began her next passion in life, which was to travel. Sandy traveled all over the world! She loved an adventure along with her “partner in crime,” her husband Morris, who is now deceased.
Sandy loved to read and do crossword puzzles and did a lot of volunteering in her spare time.
Sandy was a member of the St Augustine Episcopal Church in Kansas City, Missouri, where she loved attending service and looked forward to morning coffee and fellowship with the ladies of the church.
