Mellott, great grandson Apollo Mellott Wilfert, special “honorary” son, Mike Reedy, and a host of loving extended family and friends like Brad F. (Karissa L.) Marshall, who often took care of Sandra.

In accordance with her and the family’s wishes, cremation is to take place with the assistance of Billings Funeral Home and Cremation Services of Elkhart. Burial will follow at Augsburg Lutheran Church Cemetery in Porter, Indiana, where a graveside service is pending. We will announce times here when the schedule has been set.
Sandra was a very compassionate, self-sufficient and independent woman. Folks would say that she had a huge heart and was always a very loving soul. She had an exceptionally sharp memory, and she would always joke that people just wanted her for her mind. She was an advocate for anyone downtrodden or in need and would try to move mountains if it meant getting someone some help. She also had a very close relationship with her daughter, Amy, and the grandchildren who called her Moo-moo.
In her free time, Sandra loved taking care of her songbirds, honing her artistic talents by drawing or making crafts and watching westerns and “ME” TV. She was an avid horse enthusiast when she was younger.
