Sandra Kay Streeby entered this life on February 18, 1945, in Livermore, IA, the daughter of Milo and Izola Smith. Her family moved to Eldon when she was young and she attended school in Eldon, graduating with the Cardinal High School Class of 1963. Shortly after graduation she was united in marriage to Victor “Vic” Streeby. She remained at home and took care of things when Vic served his
country in the United States Army. Together they became the proud parents of three children: Sherry, Steve, and Carrie. Sandy and Vic lived in town for several years before moving to the farm along the river. Sandy made sure the everything was taken care of at home and helped with the duties around the farm. She always had animals in and around the house from pigs to mules and everything in between.
As time passed and the family grew with the addition of grandchildren, Sandy cherished her time caring for them. She was always up for a game of Checkers or Go Fish. She enjoyed watching the NASCAR race and cheering on her driver, Jeff Gordon. Her presence will be missed but her memory will live on in the hearts and minds of her family and many friends.
Sandra was preceded in death by her parents and her husband Vic Streeby.
