Sandi worked as a Loan Processor and Underwriter, retiring from Iberiabank Mortgage at the age of 75. She loved animals of all kinds, especially big cats like white tigers and Florida panthers. She enjoyed traveling, reading books, listening to music, and next to her family and friends, she lived to dance. She competed in ballroom dancing for many years and loved dancing with her friends at Suncoast Ballroom in Largo.
