Sandra Tollman

(Nov. 19, 2006)

Funeral services will be Saturday, Nov. 25 at 1 p.m. at New Life Christian Fellowship for Sandra Jean Tollman, 65, who died Sunday, Nov. 19 at the Powell Hospital.

She was born April 29, 1941, in Lusk to Charles P. and Florence Tollman. She attended grade school in Lance Creek and then moved with her family to Thermopolis for her first year in high school. Her family then moved to Powell where she graduated from Powell High School as valedictorian in 1959.

Sandra went on to graduate from Northwest Community College in 1961 and that same year began a 35-year career at Northwest, retiring in 1996 as registrar.

She was an avid reader and enjoyed listening to music, doing embroidery and taking weekend drives with family to the mountains.

The Powell Valley Care Center had been Sandra’s home since 2003. There she made many new friends and enjoyed a wide variety of activities.

Survivors include three brothers, Ray (Vicki) of Powell, Ed of Glennallen, Alas., and Jerry of Delta Junction, Alas.; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her stepmother, Edity; and a sister-in-law, Donna Tollman.

Burial will be in Crown Hill Cemetery, Powell, under the direction of Thompson Funeral Home. For those who wish, memorials may be sent to the Powell Valley Care Center or to a charity of one’s choice.
