Sandra Jean (Dixon) Einstman, 60, died peacefully on February 5, 2017 at Wellstar Tranquility at Kennesaw Mountain in Kennesaw GA after a long illness.
Sandy was born March 24, 1956 in Rockford IL to Robert and Shirley (McDonald) Dixon. She graduated from Hononegah High school, Rockton IL and received a BSN degree from the University of Illinois where she was a member of the Alpha Chi Omega sorority. Sandy held the position of Nurse Supervisor at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Chicago, IL before moving to Marietta GA where she continued her nursing career at St Joseph Hospital and Ross Memorial Healthcare Center.
Her devotion to her son, Andrew, her Catholic faith through St Joseph Catholic Church and love of music and piano continued to provide her comfort in difficult times. Sandy's bright light for life will shine on forever in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.
Sandy leaves her beloved son, Andrew J Einstman, mother, Shirley Dixon, brother, Craig R Dixon, many special cousins, and nieces/nephews. Her dearest, adoring father preceded her in death.
Family has requested no public service. A family celebration of Sandy's life will be held in Illinois in the spring with interment at Willow Creek Cemetery, Argyle IL.
A grateful special thanks to the Tranquility staff and Hospice 11th Hour friends who supported and comforted Sandy and her family in her final hours.
Winkenhofer Pine Ridge Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
