It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Sandra K. Patterson, our loving and devoted mother, Nana, Great-Nana and friend to all whose lives she touched.

She was born in Princeton Oct. 9, 1947. For many years Sandy tended bar at many of the fraternal and service organizations. She loved being a bartender and working with the public. She also kept the corporate books for the Moose Lodge in Mount Carmel for many years. She enjoyed helping out at the family business Mains Flower Shop and Greenhouses. She loved spending time with her family and watching Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy and many other programs. She was a member of the Fraternal Orders of Eagles. She was always keeping up with current events and talking politics. She also enjoyed cooking, baking, doing sudoku books and working puzzles. She was an amazing mother, Nana and Great-Nana and will be dearly missed.

Sandy is survived by her mother, Patricia Mains; children, Stacy Kerstein (Shawn), Sherri Mason (Brian); grandchildren Justin Boner and Faith Stone (Clint McPherson); great-grandchildren Raven Boner and Axton Webb; brothers, Donald Mains, Ronald Mains; nieces Marisa Ruffner (Jacob) and Desiree Rebouche (Robert).
