Sandra J. Fruehling, 67, of Aurora, Colorado passed away peacefully at her home on March 10, 2021, surrounded by family.
Sandi was born on May 10, 1953 in Bemidji, MN to Kenneth and Janet (Morris) Cooper. Sandi was married to Gerald Fruehling on February 10, 1979 in Dubuque, Iowa. Sandi earned Bachelor’s degrees in computer science and mathematics from Clarke College. She and Jerry moved to Colorado in 1983, where Sandi worked as a computer programmer. Sandi was able to retire from programming at a young age, which allowed her to pursue her passion in quilting. Sandi was actively involved in several quilting organizations, and won many awards for her quilts over the years. She has quilts hanging in the Colorado Quilt Museum and the Denver Public Library. Sandi also loved her family, and spent countless hours repairing special items for grandkids, helping with homework and 4-H projects, assisting with resumes, creating birthday cakes, and anything else the family might need.
Sandi is survived by her husband, Gerald Fruehling; stepdaughters Julie Knight (Derek) of Parker, CO, and Jennifer McClellan (Hank) of Aurora, CO; grandchildren Andrew McClellan (Sol) of Parker, CO, Jacquelyn Dax (Ryan) of Parker, CO, Landry Knight (Nicole) of Broken Arrow, OK, Travis Knight of Provo, UT, and Jessica Knight of Parker, CO; and great-grandchildren Noah and Adalyn McClellan, and Henry and Jacob Dax. She is also survived by her mother, Janet; sisters Sharon and Rochelle, and brothers Scott and Tim.
