Sandra Weiser, beloved family matriarch, passed away August 14, 2023. Sandra was born to George and Erma Castle on August 24, 1939 in Cedar Springs, Michigan. A loving and devoted mother, Sandra is survived by her six children: Shelli (Bill) Otten, Suzan (Dan) Sangster, and Ron (Kate) Simmons, Matt (Lee Ann) Weiser, Tracy (Ryan) Reichenbach; John (Kate) Weiser; and her cherished sister, Sharon Foust. Sandra was a loving grandmother to 17 and great-grandmother to five. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Jerry, and her sister, Donna Gorski.
Sandra graduated from Cedar Springs High School and went on to earn degrees in education from Grand Valley State College and Michigan State University. Her career included work as an elementary school teacher, school curriculum coordinator, and university instructor to student teachers in Michigan, Wisconsin, Colorado, and Nevada.
Sandra had a lifelong love for learning and travel. It was on this journey that she met and married her soulmate, Jerry Weiser. Together, they shared the joy of teaching and shaping the lives of future educators. They combined their love of teaching and travel by teaching crafts on cruises around the world. The grandchildren have extensive memories of traveling with them across the country in their vintage GMC- Coca Cola motor home. During their retirement years in Las Vegas, both Sandy and Jerry amassed thousands of volunteer hours in service to the Sun City Summerlin Security Patrol.
Sandra’s memory will live on the hearts of all who knew her. Her cheerful and positive outlook, boundless curiosity, and passion for learning have left their mark on her former students and family. We celebrate the lesson she shared -- “Life is a journey, and love is what makes that journey worthwhile”.
A celebration of her life will take place September 8 at Sentinel Point Retirement Community, the special place she called home for the past three years. Private service for family at 2pm, followed by memorial reception 3-4pm. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to Flat River Outreach Ministries, Lowell, where Sandy delighted in discovering Thrift Shop treasures.
