March 18, 1938 – August 4, 2020
Sandra Sue Wagner passed away in her home August 4, 2020.
She was born March 18, 1938 in Urbana, Ohio to the late Paul R. and Naomi F. (Brinnon) Wynn. The family moved to South Bend in 1950, where Sandra attended John Adams HS, graduating in 1955. She was employed at American Trust Bank where she met, and eventually married, Lawrence “Larry” Wagner October 11, 1958. They later had three sons, and after their graduation from HS, Sandra became secretary at what is now Evangel Hts. United Methodist Church. They have lived in the South Bend/Granger area for their entire 62 years of marriage. During that time, the family has enjoyed summer rentals at Gravel Lake, eventually purchasing a cottage on the St. Joseph River in Mendon, MI. They have enjoyed many trips to the Smoky Mountains, Caribbean cruises, Germany, Jamaica, and Alaska, many of which were with close friends. Her hobbies included cross stitching, cooking, and often would experiment with new recipes, and she usually out-caught Larry while fishing.
She is survived by her husband, Larry; sons: Kurt, Kenneth (Sharon), Keith (Eileen); grandsons, Timothy and Shawn; granddaughters: Chasity (Javier) Mendez, Jessica (Russ) Stephic, and Nicole Lowe; and four great-grand children.
The family wishes to thank the staff of Heart to Heart Hospice for their exemplary care of Sandra, and especially, Nurse Margaret and Aide Jaimey.

Ironwood Dr. (46615), Heart to Heart Hospice Foundation, 7240 Chase Oaks Blvd., Plano, TX 75025, or to Habitat for Humanity, of SJC, 402 E. South Street (46601).
