September 30, 1958 — May 20, 2014

Sandra J. Tuttle was born in Cherokee, IA, on September 30, 1958. She was the daughter of Lester and Mary Ann (Nilles) Bush. She attended the Maryhill School until the 4th grade, and finished her early education at Meriden-Cleghorn Schools, graduating with the class of 1977. She worked various jobs following high school, which included construction, bartending at the Shamrock and Pastime, and K-Products. She later attended the Gateway School of Massage Therapy, and owned and operated Natural Health Therapeutic Massage in Cherokee with her sister, Jackie, for 13 years. On March 18, 1989, she was united in marriage to Timothy Tuttle. They made their home on a farm near Aurelia. Sandy loved helping on the farm--especially working with the new calves. She thoroughly enjoyed her role as a homemaker and mom to Kerstin, Lexy and Wyatt. Her spare time was spent doing crafts, antique shopping, and gardening both vegetables and flowers. She was an excellent cook--best known for her awesome pie and potato salad. She had a great sense of humor, and loved to visit with people. Sandy passed away from injuries she sustained in an ATV accident on Tuesday, May 20, 2014, at the family farm. She was 55. She was preceded in death by her parents, Lester and Mary Ann Bush, sister, Sharon Geary and brother, Mike Bush.
