SANDRA JEAN SMITH
Sandra Jean Smith born May 20, 1944
passed away on December 14, 2017.
Celebration of OurLoved One Sandra had a
successful life that included her love for her
community, her devotion to athletics, and her
commitment to her friends and family. Sandra
graduated Indiana University in Bloomington,
IN and followed with her MBA from Kellogg
Graduate School. Sandra committed her time
to the community with a 37 year association
with the Village of Westmont and
surrounding communities Park District.
Sandra was a Park Commissioner for
Westmont Park District who was always
advocating the need for recreational
activities for all, but especially for girls.
Sandra loved traveling to just about any
place in the world. But two of her favorites
places were Hong Kong and London. This
spirited her enthusiasm for everything British.
Sandra participated in a few car clubs in the
Chicago area. She seemed to never miss a car
show from May to September. Her original
foray into this “man’s arena” was to express
her forever love of the Ford Mustang. After
having her British interest piqued, Sandra
ventured into the world of Jaguar.
Sandra had numerous dogs in her
household, the majority of them being
german shepherds. However, her last beloved
dog, Blu, was a golden retriever. This love of
the breed catapulted Sandra into the group
“As Good As Gold” where she assisted with
the adoption process.
