Sandra M. Wall, 82, of Greenville, IL. passed away on September 21, 2023, at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital surrounded by loving family.
She was born July 11, 1941, in Tulsa, OK., the daughter of Marvin and M. Elaine (Duckworth) Connor.
Sandy married Louis ‘Louie’ Wall on August 17, 1963, at the First Christian Church in Greenville and recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. Sandy and Louie went on to have two daughters, Heather and Sybil and granddaughter Connor.
After graduating Greenville High School with the class of 1959, Sandy continued to live and work in the Greenville area. She helped support her family over the years working at the Bond County Courthouse, Utlaut Memorial Hospital, FS, Pet Milk and finally finishing her career as a lab technician at Mallinckrodt.
Following her retirement from Mallinckrodt, she shared her love for socializing, jewelry, and antiques by working part-time in the jewelry department at Value City and at Pepin’s Country store.
Sandy spent a lot of her free time going to auctions, flea markets and garden nurseries hunting for gorgeous antiques and flowers. She was not afraid of hard work as she avidly took care of her beautiful home and garden. She was constantly planting, painting, and decorating. When she decided to relax, she loved to sit on her porch swing and spend time in her she-shed drinking coffee and listening to music. Sandy was quite the seamstress making her own clothes and clothes and costumes for her daughters and granddaughter. She loved fashion and was quite the ‘fashionista’ always looking her best. She always said, “No matter how young or old you are, you can always have fabulous shoes and purses.”
Additional hobbies and interests included being a registered Delaware Indian, an active member of the Greenville Garden Club, the First Christian Church, Home Extension Club and venturing out with friends and family to concerts, the Fox Theater and The Muny.
Sandy loved being a mother and grandmother. She was involved in all her daughters’ and granddaughter’s activities from Girl Scouts, 4-H, plays, band concerts and cheerleading to t-ball through
collegiate sports. She never missed an event.
Sandy was very kind and a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She will be greatly missed by all of those who knew and loved her.
She was preceded in death by her parents.
Surviving Sandy are her husband Louie of Greenville; daughters Heather (Robbie) Stich of Pocahontas, Sybil Wall of St. Louis, MO; granddaughter Connor Stich of Greenville; and sister Dottye Tompkins of Highland, IL.
