After many years working within the music industry, she found the love of her life, Freddie. Freddie and Sandi were married in October 1986. They continued their life together in the “Rock and Roll” scene with the Keystone Family and The Stone Nightclub.
Sandi was preceded in death by her brother, Ken. Sandi is survived by her loving husband Freddie, devoted stepchildren Jeanie (Mike), Paul, Joyce (Bill), grandchildren Rachael, Jason, Lani, PJ, and greatgrandchildren Jayden, Kaden, Bryce, Elliot. Sandi is survived by her parents, Wilbur and Betty Clarke of Los Altos, her siblings Mike (Mary), Bob (Michael), Elaine (Mark), Don (Debi), Barbara (Don), Mark (Megan) and many nieces and nephews.
Sandi was very special to her close-knit family and friends. Her contagious smile, her constant hugs, and her gift of dancing will be deeply missed.
