Sandra Kay Rasmussen, 79, Dodge Center

Sandra Kay Rasmussen, 79, of Dodge Center, passed away on Tuesday, August 31, 2021, at Mayo Clinic Saint Mary’s Campus in Rochester.

Sandra — or Sandy as she was known by friends and family, was born to Palmer and Mildred Hanson, February 7, 1942, in Hayfield. She graduated from Hayfield High School. 

She married her high school sweetheart, James Rasmussen on September 15, 1960 and they made their home Dodge Center. Together they raised their only child, Shawn Rasmussen.

 

Sandy was a cab assembler at Crenlo until she retired in 2007. She often volunteered at the American Legion in Dodge Center and was a cherished member of her church. Sandy enjoyed spending time with her friends, watching her soap operas and game shows, and playing bingo. She also enjoyed camping and cheering on her grandchildren. Above all, she loved spending time with her family. Although she was little, she was such a hard worker and very strong with one of the biggest, warmest, loving hearts.

Sandy was preceded in death by her parents, Palmer and Mildred, and her siblings Dottie, Chuck, Richie, Eugene, Illa, Shirley, and Phillis. Her husband, James, passed away on September 14, 2010.

Survivors include her son Shawn, her cherished grandchildren, Kelli Williams (Ryan) of Pine Island, Adam Rasmussen (Kat) of Georgetown, Tex., and Jared Rasmussen (Kaylee) of Pine Island and her beloved great-grandchildren Jaiden, Kayslynn, Knox, Jaysie, and Jaxton, and one brother, Tommy Hanson of Austin.

She will be greatly missed by many.
