Sandra Kay (Eddy) Kadel, age 79, of Centennial, Colorado, formerly of Centerville, Iowa passed away Tuesday, April 19, 2022 at her home.
Sandra was born on March 11, 1943 in Centerville, Iowa, the daughter of Robert “Bob” Lincoln Eddy and Berta Lee (Knott) Eddy. She graduated from Centerville High School with the Class of 1960. On February 19, 1961, Sandra was united in marriage to the love of her life, Daniel Dean Kadel. To this union, four children were born, Tamera, Michael, Lisa, and Darrin.
When Dan joined the United States Air Force, Sandra was always there to support him. She enjoyed getting out of Centerville for the first time, seeing all the new attractions. The couple moved around the United States for his work, and never once did Sandra complain. For each state they moved, she always found work as a personal banker, with her most recent work at Wells Fargo.
In her free time, Sandra enjoyed collecting Hallmark Christmas Tree décor, Star Wars and Star Trek collectibles and anything else Hallmark. She was an amazing quilter and enjoyed sewing as well. One of her loves later in life was Volleyball. She enjoyed being an avid spectator, especially when her granddaughters play. Sandra was extremely proud of her family, and loved every moment spent with all of them.
