Sandra L. Puffpaff, 77, from Elgin, Illinois, passed away on Monday, January 11, 2021 at White Oaks Memory Care Facility in Huntley from Alzheimer’s Disease.
Sandra was born on October 27, 1943 in Elgin to Chester and Nettie (Abbott) Gustafson. Sandra married Eugene Puffpaff on January 12, 1963. Together they celebrated 52 years of marriage.
Sandra is survived by her two sons, Todd Lee and Tad Lee; her daughter-in-law, Jamie (McCoy) Puffpaff; her grandchildren, Emily (Puffpaff) Calder and her husband Eric Calder, and Alex Puffpaff; her great grandchildren, Addison and Owen Calder; her sister, Donna (Gustafson) Powell; her brother-in-law, Frederick Wilkening; and many nieces and nephews.
Sandra was preceded in death by her husband, Eugene Puffpaff, her parents, her brother Ken Gustafson, her brother-in-laws Gary Puffpaff and Donald Powell, and her sister-in-laws Bonnie (Puffpaff) Wilkening and Marilyn (Gruenert) Puffpaff.
Sandra retired from Empco Lite in Elgin in 2003 after 20 years. Sandra loved seeing her family, especially “the little ones” Addison and Owen, watching the Cubs play, and vacationing in the Caymen Islands and Treasure Island, Florida. When she was younger, she enjoyed golfing and bowling. More than anything though, she loved her time with “the girls,” her very dear friends, playing bridge, going out for lunch, and having lots of laughs. Sandra was strong, stubborn, and sassy, and loved her sweets! She will be missed by many.
