Sandra Kay Pease

Sandra Kay Pease, 72, was born Nov. 10, 1941, in Astoria, Oregon. She passed away on June 23, 2014, at Swedish hospital in Seattle. She was surrounded by loving friends and family throughout her extended illness, and was with family at the time of death.

Sandy is survived by her husband of 50 years, Don Pease; daughter Carrie Gerdes and husband, Dana, of Burlington; son Brian Pease and wife, Pamela, of Oak Harbor; and granddaughters Taylor, Riley and Morgan and grandson Jake. She also leaves behind beloved niece Laura Renninger and countless friends and relatives.

Sandy will be remembered by many as the elementary music teacher at Broadview Elementary School in Oak Harbor, where she sang and danced with children throughout her career. Sandy loved people, all people, and especially children. She lived life fully and gave her energy to everyone and everything.

Don and Sandy spent most of their married years in Oak Harbor. In 2002 they moved to their dream home in the Methow Valley. Hobbies included tending her flowers, sewing, and scrap-booking the lives of her grandchildren. She loved community and volunteered as she was able. Paramount in her life was time spent with grandchildren. The world is not quite as bright without this bigger-than-life, loving lady!

Memorial services will be held in Oak Harbor and in the Methow Valley in the near future. Remembrances may be made to your favorite charity.
