Sandra was born on January 24, 1948 in Inglewood, California and was the only child of O.L. Pierce and Joan C.

She married David South on May 15, 1982 in California; after they were married they moved to Georgia where they lived for 21 years.  There Sandy became foster “MOM” to 34 children.  Dave and Sandy adopted one of the children, Michelle, in 2002.  They moved to Chandler, Minnesota in 2006.

Sandy enjoyed playing Rook with friends and family, gardening, especially her flowers, "playing" on the internet and working on computers of any kind, since she worked so much on them in California.
