URBANA — Sandra Kay “Sandy” Jarling, 69, passed away at her home in Urbana earlier this week.
She was born on July 23, 1944, in Danville to John and Eloise (Zander) Jarling.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her nephew Steve Snyder.
Sandy graduated from the Concordia Teachers College with a bachelor’s degree. She was a proud member of the Red Hat Society and enjoyed the many friendships she formed throughout her life.
