Sandra Lynn (Nichols) Hinkle, age 66, of Mukwonago, passed away on Friday, May 17, 2019 at Waukesha Memorial Hospital. Sandra was born on April 19, 1953 in the Town of Geneva, WI to Shirley Graves.
Sandra is not only a mother, grandmother and great grandmother but she was also a friend, a daughter, a granddaughter, a wife, a sister and the greatest teacher of life..... she has the loveliest green eyes and a smile that drew anyone around her right to her. She shined as bright as a star and her soul is nothing but love.
She never knew a stranger and always had advice and guidance to give to anyone that needed a listening ear. Being the backbone of the family, she always put family first and didn’t have a selfish bone in her body. One of her favorite things to do was to spread beauty. Gardening was one of her special hobbies. She is wise and witty and funny and sassy. You always knew when Sandra entered a room, such style! She was always put together. If you wanted a slice of prize winning apple pie she was behind it!! Wonderful cook and awesome baker. She will be missed by so very many. She touched the hearts and souls of countless lives. She was a one of kind and deeply loved by everyone!!! Her earth walk may have ended but she is dancing in the clouds now and free. If you see a beautiful flower stop and think about Sandra and when you do a smile will surely appear on your face.
