Sandra “Sandy” Bell was born in Davenport, Iowa. She retired from Oakbrook Custom Embroidery in 2009 after 20 years. Sandy was an avid bowler and coached youth bowling for 20 years in Wisconsin and Summerville. She also sang in her church choir for 40 years.
The couple have three children and five grandchildren.
Their children are Daniel and Michele Schutts of Aiken, Debra and Joseph Colombo of New Jersey, and Denise and Patrick Coffey of California. Their grandchildren are Kesley and Alexis, Jillian and Samuel and John.
