She married Ronald Lee Bishop on March 1, 1969 at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Hillsboro. They later divorced. 

Sandy was employed as a waitress for several years.  She had worked at Owens Country Corner, The Ariston Café, and Maverick Family Steakhouse.  She owned her own restaurant, the Moonlight Café located at the former Owens Country Corner location at I-55 and IL Rt. 108 junction.  Sandy was currently the Marina Manager of Lake Lou Yaeger for the City of Litchfield and has served in that capacity for the past 18 years.

Sandy was a member of the Christian Church of Litchfield, and the Women of the Moose, Chapter #581, Litchfield.  Her life revolved around her children and grandchildren, making every effort to attend their sporting events. 

Sandy is survived by her two sons, Ronald (Kelly) Bishop, Jr., of Frankfort, IL., Cory (Shannon) Bishop of Litchfield., and her daughter, Keri Bishop of Litchfield. In addition to her children, Sandy leaves her brother, Richard (Justine “Dusty”) Ulrich of East Alton, IL., and her step sister, Janet Jackson of Litchfield.  Eight grandchildren, Haley, Allison, Chloe Bishop, Kyra and Brawly Jacobs, Rylie Segarra, Raquel and Brock Bishop. One great grandson, Rowan Maddox. 

Sandy is preceded in death by her parents, grandson Zyan Bishop and a nephew Brandon Ulrich.

Tim Barbee, pastor of the Christian Church of Litchfield will officiate.  Cremation will follow the services.
