Obituary for Sandra H. Columbus

November 18, 1957 - April 14, 2015
Sun Prairie, Wisconsin | Age 57


Sandra Harrison Columbus, age 57, died peacefully in Agrace HospiceCare in Fitchburg surrounded by family on Tuesday, April 14, 2015 from reoccurring cervical cancer which began in 2008.

Sandra was a loving, generous, caring, sweet wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, co-worker, neighbor and friend to so many. She will forever be remembered for her amazing uplifting positive spirit and a great sense of humor - in a word she was "Spec-tac-culas". Sandra's favorite saying when asked how she was doing was "I am wonderful beyond belief" and she meant it. There was nothing more important and no where she would rather be than with family. Family and friends were her nucleus. Sandra also enjoyed traveling, gardening, and reading. She had many funny faces she often shared in good humor. Also, Sandra worked as a Director of Conventions and Seminars and an Administrative Assistant for MetaStar, WI Homecare Organization, State Medical Society, and Columbus School District.

Sandra is survived by her husband, Lee of 30 years; three children, Lukes (Elizabeth) Denny of Columbus, Brandon Columbus of Doylestown, and step son Lee Michael Schultz of Elk River, MN. Sandra is also survived by her two adorable, love of her life grandchildren Jordan & Eliana Denny, as well as six of her siblings, Brad (Betty) Harrison of Minong, Debra King of Maryland Heights, MO, Kim (Herb) Warren of Dane, Susan D. Harrison (Dave Tollefson) of Middleton, Brent Harrison of Champaign, IL, Bart (Claire) Harrison of Verona.

Sandra was preceded in death by her parents, Farres and Emmy Lou (Baumgarten) Harrison; in-law's Donald and Mary Columbus; grandparents and brother-in-law, Jack Stanley.
