Obituary for Sandra Grace Testa

Sandra Grace “Sandi” Testa, 69, of Grinnell and formerly of Marshalltown, died on August 8, 2018, at her home of natural causes.

A memorial service is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Monday, August 13th, at the Sheridan Methodist Church, northeast of Grinnell, rural Poweshiek County.

Memorial contributions may be directed to the Sheridan Methodist Church or Hope Ministry.

Sandi was born on June 25, 1949, in Marshalltown, the daughter of Charles Graves and Doris Gillespie Turbett. She was a 1967 graduate of South Tama High School.

Sandi was employed as a CMA with the Iowa Veterans Home in Marshalltown for 30 years. She retired in 2010 and later moved to Grinnell.

She was a member of the Sheridan Methodist Church, United Methodist Women, LGT Club and a homemakers club.

After 9/11, Sandi returned to attending church and was a supporter of Hope Ministry. She was very proud to have helped a friend find the Lord! She loved to read, attend Bible Study groups, and playing board games. She also enjoyed fishing.

On June 6, 1998, Sandi made the decision to become sober, which was a big-step in her life.

Survivors include two sisters, Dorothy (Brad) “Dottie” Theophilus and Marilyn DeJong, both of Marshalltown; several nieces and nephews, Ryan and Amanda Thiessen of Burleson, Texas, Jason Thiessen of Marshalltown, Brent and Amber Schulz of Omaha, Nebraska, Christopher DeJong of Denver, Colorado and Tim and Jennifer Castle of Gilman; and many, many friends. She was preceded in death by her parents; her son, Curtis Wilkins, Jr. and a nephew, Shane Thiessen.
