Sandra K. Oden, or Aunt Sandy to those she loved the most, was born on July 18, 1959 and passed away on October 26, 2021. She grew up in Livermore before moving to Valley Home and then Oakdale, CA where she attended Oakdale High School. She worked in banking but will be remembered for hitting the ball over the ballpark fence during softball games, cooking amazing dishes with bologna for her nieces and nephews, decorating her home, crafts and most of all her family. They’ll remember her when they watch a Hallmark movie, play badminton without her killer serve, play a game at a holiday party or see a relish tray. She was very much loved and will be missed.
She is preceded in death by her father Jesse Edward Oden, her sister Janice Brennan and her sister-in-law Laurel Mahaney. She leaves behind her mother June Oden, her two brothers Ralph and Bruce, her brother-in-law James Brennan, her nieces Jessica, Mary and Kira, her nephews Alfred, Charles and Nathan; and her grandnieces and nephew Reilly, Ryder and Asher.
A celebration of her life was held on May 14, 2022.
