ObituaryShare A Memory

Sandra Mae Daley, 73, of Yakima, peacefully passed away at the Cottage In The Meadow, on September 26, 2017 following a declining battle with her health.  She was born at home on March 13, 1944 in Sault Ste Marie, Michigan to Morris and Mae Reno. She was the youngest of 7 children. 

Sandie enjoyed sun bathing by her pool, driving her '69 Mustang "Daisy Mae".  She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends.  Always willing to take a trip to "any" casino!  She really liked getting those "special" packages loaded with pickled ring bologna, homemade fudge and candy and those special sweatshirts with reminders of the Soo.  She missed her birthplace and loved to talk about the white sandy beaches & her favorite lighthouses.   
After retiring from WA State Dept. Of Agriculture Seed Lab, Sandie found her true calling. She became a home care giver.  She always felt it was what she was meant to do with her life.  She so enjoyed her clients and provided them with care and compassion.
Sandie is survived by her sons, Jerry (Christie) Daley and Steve (Teresa) Daley, her prize possessions, her grandchildren, Aly, Zach (Claire), and Alex.  Several sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, numerous nieces, nephews, family and very close friends both here and afar, and her unconditional friend and companion, her fur baby "Chance".  She is preceded in death by the love of her life, Jerry. Her parents, Morris and Mae, her brothers and sisters: Arn, Don, Bob, Dee, Lo and Butch.   
The family would like to express their deep appreciation to the Compass Care Staff of Virginia Mason Memorial Hospital for their devoted and professional support of Sandie and the family over the last several months as she continued to depend more on their services. Julie B. and Denise, you BOTH were our angels.  We couldn't have done it without your support and guidance.  Thank you so much.  
At her request, no formal services are planned.  Memorial contributions are suggested to the Cottage In The Meadow or Wags to Riches Animal Rescue in care of Brookside Funeral Home, (PO Box 1267, Moxee, WA 98936)
