“From what we cannot hold the stars are made” – W. S. Merwin
Sandra R. Orth passed peacefully on Friday, May 11, 2018, surrounded by love and family. She was 77.
Sandra was born on March 7, 1941 to Charles Hugh and Beatrice Louise Stewart of Colorado Springs, Colorado. She remained a life-long resident of the Springs.
Sandra was employed by Current, Inc. as a key punch operator and excelled in both speed and accuracy. She also worked at Holy Trinity Little School as a teachers’ aid. She was gifted at teaching children and loved working with them as much as they adored her.
She spent the majority of her life as a homemaker, creating a beautiful home and garden. She was a wonderful cook and an exceptional baker. Her greatest love was being a mom and she doted endlessly on her grandchildren. She loved the mountains and plains, and instilled in her children a sense of wonder and love of nature.
Sandra had a smile that could light up any room, and a sense of humor that could fill it with laughter. Sweet dreams to you on your next journey.
She is survived by her loving husband, John W. Orth; daughter, Tammy Tomczyk (husband Steve); sons: Matthew Orth (wife Tracy), Douglas Manyik (wife Cindy), and John A. Orth; sister, Jacqueline Korpalski; grandchildren: John R. Orth, Colby Orth, Nicole Orth, Ian Orth, and Jacob Orth.
A private celebration of her life will be held.
