Sandra Kay Pfaff, known to most as “Sandy,” passed away on Friday, Oct. 4, 2019, at 12:43 p.m. in Fort Wayne’s Visiting Nurse Hospice Home.

Born on April 3, 1945, in San Francisco, Calif., she was the daughter of the late William Collins and the late Florence Mikels Collins Denny. Sandy spent most of her childhood in the Logansport area where she attended school and was a baton twirler.  She was also proud to twirl as a junior golden girl at Purdue University.

Sandy was lovingly, dedicated to her family as a homemaker and took an interest in sewing and crochet. She also enjoyed puzzles and the fellowship of her bible study group at Tippe River Downs. She admired flowers and gardening, passing time with all kinds of computer games and Facebook.

On April 7, 1963, Sandy and Robert J. Pfaff Jr. were united in marriage. They shared more than 52 years together before his passing on Oct. 5, 2015.

Surviving are their daughters, Bobbi (husband, Cary) Carter, of Vincennes; and Vickie (husband, Greg) Lootens, of Rochester; and their grandsons, Clayton Andrew Carter, of Frankfort; Tyler Lootens, of Fort Wayne; and Kobe Lootens, of Rochester. Also surviving are three siblings, sister, Phyllis (husband, Phil) Drake; and brothers, Gaile (wife, Tonya) Collins and William Collins Jr.
