Sandra Louella Krahmer was born on July 5, 1943, and died on November 14, 2021. We will gather for fellowship and remembrance from 5 to 7 PM on Thursday, November 18, 2021, at Lake Ridge Chapel and Memorial Designers. Facial masks are requested to be worn at the gathering by the family. A tribute to Sandi’s life may be found here on this page, where you may leave memories and expressions of sympathy for her family.
Sandi met John E. Krahmer during their time at the University of Iowa. They married in August of 1966 and celebrated 51 years of marriage. She was the daughter of a doctor, Roy Smith, and a teacher, Wilma Smith. She graduated class Valedictorian from Swissvale High School. Sandi had a lifelong love of teaching, including high school Spanish, French, and Math, as well as duplicate bridge classes for the Lubbock Bridge Center. She is remembered as a wonderful wife, mother, sister, aunt, and grandmother, as well as a devoted friend.
Sandi was a true Renaissance woman. She read voraciously and was an American Contract Bridge League Life-Master. She mediated divorce and family law cases and taught GRE prep courses; she routinely won First Prize at the South Plains Fair for her peanut butter fudge and orange juice cake; she was a talented seamstress, sewing colorful ties for John’s classroom, making costumes for her children and grandchildren, and hemming for her virtually challenged family; she was the heart of the family at holidays, cooking for and housing everyone every year; and she could budget and clip coupons like a pro. Her “can do” spirit will live on for years to come in her family and in those whose lives she touched. Sandi was the glue that held the Krahmer Family together, supporting everyone with wisdom and constant encouragement.
She is survived by her sister, Donna Jean Frole, sister-in-law, Mary Ann Krahmer; son, Ben Krahmer (wife Charlotte); daughters, Alyssa and Ana Krahmer; and granddaughter, Kayla Krahmer; a grandson, Sean Krahmer; and niece, Jamie Krahmer.
