Life Story / Obituary


Sandra Lee Tendeland, 77, passed away on Friday, October 20, 2023, peacefully at her home.

She was born on March 24, 1946, in Franksville to William F. and Harriet E. (nee: Breitzmann) Stoll. She was the youngest of six which included: Victor (Lorna) Stoll, Edith (Charles) Jacob, William (Karen) Stoll, Marlene (Charles) Thomforde-Archibald and Marshall (Jean) Stoll.

Sandra (Sandy) attended Horlick High School and graduated from U.W. Milwaukee with a business degree. After graduation she worked at various companies including H & R Block doing income tax preparation, the Studios of Potente as a comptroller, and U.W. Parkside as a computer specialist.

On September 19, 1968, she was united in marriage to Robert (Bob) A. Tendeland. Sandy and Bob made their home in Sturtevant, WI. In 1978 Bob talked Sandy into moving to a ten-acre farm in Paris Township. Sandy sold the farm in 2022 and moved to Pleasant Prairie.

She is survived by four children, Monica (Joseph) De Groot, Robert D. Tendeland, Dr. Michelle (Brian) Harper, and Vaughn Tendeland; five grandchildren, Zig, Levi, and Kylee De Groot, Shawn Tendeland, and Jacob Harper; four great grandchildren, Keyton and Daylon De Groot, Colton Glabe and Calvin Harper; nieces, nephews, and special friends. She is also survived her by in-laws, Pat, Debbie, and Doris Tendeland. Her parents, husband, brothers, sisters, and numerous in-laws preceded Sandy in death.

Sandy was a loving and supportive mother. She treasured getting together with her card club and swim club friends. Poor health only allowed her to travel to 25 out of the 50 states but she would have seen them all if able. Reading was a favorite past time as well. Teaching sewing for the 4-H club was her cross to bear. She liked planting flowers and watching birds in her yard. Animals especially the kittens on the farm brightened her day. A pleasant activity was trying new restaurants with her family and friends. Sandy enjoyed a brandy old-fashioned sweet on a Saturday night (but usually only one or two).

A celebration of Sandy’s life will be held Saturday, November 11, 2023, from 5:00 to 7:30 pm at Casa Capri, 2129 Birch Road, Kenosha.
