Sandy Ann Pendell, 43, passed away on October 2, 2018 at home.
Sandy was born in Nampa, ID on June 18, 1975 and was the middle of three siblings. She graduated from Nampa High School and remained in Nampa for many years until moving to OshKosh, Wisconsin. She returned to Nampa with her children in 2013. She was preceded in death by her longtime partner Timothy Stellato. Sandy is survived by her four children Jeff Pendell, Sean Pendell, Kim Reno, and Dakota Pendell as well as her Mother and Stepfather Barbara and Marty Ward, her older sister Tina Baldertson, and her younger brother, Thomas Smith. She was expecting her second grandchild this winter and was a loving aunt to many nieces and nephews.
From an early age, Sandy enjoyed all animals and being outdoors. She was particularly fond of gardening, fishing, cattle, horses, and dogs. Her last pet was a little dog named BooBoo who never left her side. In recent years, she spent a lot of time crocheting gifts for her family.
Sandy was creative and artistic, often writing poetry when she was younger. She loved her family and friends and would frequently send little notes of encouragement or things she thought the recipient would enjoy. She also loved to cook and bake for the people in her life.
A service will be held at 6:00 PM on Thursday, October 11, at Nampa Funeral Home, Yraguen Chapel, 415 12th Avenue South, Nampa, Idaho. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in her name to Heifer International. https://www.heifer.org/gift-catalog/honor-cards.html
