Sandra was born on March 6, 1950 in the same hospital where she died. She was the daughter of Robert and Darlene Coppess Flockhart. Sandra graduated from Lincoln High School with the Class of 1968. In 1971 she was united in marriage to Kenneth E. Proesch, they later divorced. Sandra was diagnosed in 1983 with multiple sclerosis so physical work became difficult. She loved to crochet, latch hook, plastic canvas and cross stitch and shared her talents with many family and friends. She loved her flowers, gardening and spending time with her grandchildren and dogs.
Sandra is survived by her son, Craig A. Proesch, Cedar Rapids, Iowa; her grandsons, Codi and Colton Proesch of Cedar Rapids, Iowa; her mother, Darlene Flockhart of Stanwood, Iowa; sisters, Marcia (Harry) Driscoll of Mechanicsville, Iowa, Joyce (Bob) Simmermaker of Clarence, Iowa and Dianna (Dennis) Hodgden of Tipton, Iowa; her brothers, Bob (Marie) Flockhart of Tipton, Iowa, Rick (Cindy) Flockhart of Stanwood, Iowa and Steve (Tami) Flockhart of Cedar Rapids, Iowa; her step-children, Steve Proesch, Sherri Stolzenbach, Stuart Proesch and their respective families. She was preceded in death by her father, Robert R. Flockhart on January 16, 2017. A general memorial fund has been established in her memory.
Miss her so much. She was a bright star to many people, making our days so much more fun. She worried about and watched out for others. She was so beloved. And yes, she was the good kind of "crazy". The world has lost a little shine without her.
sandy was a good friend to me. We had alot of fun together like playing bingo and doing plastic canvas. We always shared yarn from one another too. I'm sure going to miss her.
So sorry about the loss of your sister Sandra, life without her might be difficult but "when you are down
GOD is up to something". Having her in your life has enriched it, I'm sure. My best to all the family.
I thank Sandy for being such a wonderful friend to my mother-in-law Wilma at Heritage. She was a protective and caring friend to her joining her for most every meal and daily conversation. Sandy always had a sunny disposition that would light up a room. Our heartfelt sympathies to her family, we are honored to have known her.
