Obituary of Sandra Lee Jaskula
*Please, no flowers or gifts, your thoughts and prayers are more than enough.* Sandra was born in Los Angeles, CA, died in Coeur d'Alene, ID. She was a loving Wife, Mother, Sister, Aunt and Grandmother. She is survived by her husband, Morris Jaskula. Daughter, Virginia and spouse, Mike. Five siblings and their spouses: Ron; Dave & Helga; Bill & Lu; Jennifer & Rick; Penelope & Charles. Aunt to: Ron & Sharron; Rhonda & Stan; Ronette & Dean; Stephanie & Ron; Eric, Tim & John; David & Lena; Ben & Lin; Nicole & Darrel. Grandmother to Valerie. And countless friends who all loved her so much. Sandra was the most loving person you could ever want to meet; she was always fair and impartial. She loved her family deeply. Everyone that truly knew her said she was the strongest woman they have ever known; truth be known, she was stronger than most men. She endured cancer, chemo, radiation and the many side effects for six years and NEVER complained. She was in remission three times and given 30 days to live three times and wouldn’t accept that—she fought back even harder. She had a will to live that was unbelievable. She broke her leg in early January of 2023 and had two surgeries, back to back. The pain was too bad and she couldn’t take any more and gave up the fight of her life. Things she enjoyed were her flowers, yard and garden, she loved going shooting and was a great shot—I NICKNAMED HER “GRANNY OAKLIE” because she was such a good shot. She killed her own moose at the age of 69 years old. We were together 37 years and married 29 years and four months. My delicate little flower was and is the love of my life and will forever be in my heart. I called her my Guardian Angel because she literally SAVED my LIFE in 2001 when she insisted I have my PSA tested—fortunately my Prostate Cancer was detected and cured. I could never do enough for her but I did my best to make her happy and comfortable. I am so fortunate to have married into such a wonderful, loving family—I am truly blessed. Sandy and I will meet again someday and be reunited for eternity. "THIS BEAUTIFUL DRAGON ROSE UP, THEN TOOK A DEEP BREATH. AS SHE LOOKED BEHIND HER, THE PAIN BEGAN TO FALL AWAY FROM THIS TIRED BODY WHICH REMAINED. SHE SAW HER CHERISHED LOVE BESIDE HER, STEADFAST, STRONG, & PROTECTING HER WHILE HOLDING ON AS LONG AS HE DARED. HER FINAL ACT OF LOVE FOR HIM WAS TO SET HERSELF FREE SO THAT HE WILL FIND HIS OWN WAY NOW. SHE KISSED HIS FACE, SQUEEZED HIS HAND & LOOKED AT HER FUTURE. THE COURAGE SHE NEEDED TO SPREAD HER WINGS & FLY AWAY HAD RISEN WITH THE SUN THIS BEAUTIFUL DAY. SANDRA LEE NO LONGER HAD KNEES, FEET & LEGS THAT WERE TOO WEAK TO RUN OR ARMS TOO TIRED TO CARRY-ON." ~ Virginia
