Sandy Elkins, 93, passed away peacefully at Platinum Care in St. George, Utah on August 28, 2018.

She was born April 13, 1925, to Robert G Elder and Myrtle Eloise Flynn Elder in Garfield, Washington. Sandy is survived by her sister Fran Weible in Richland, Washington, grandsons Thomas Pulliam of Benge, Washington and Chad Stanfield, stepson Brian Elkins (Melissa) in Hailey, Idaho, and sister-in-law Joanie McWilliams (Dave) of Florida and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husbands Albert L Elkins, E Ross Morrow and Robert Stanfield, her beloved sons Larry, Robert, and Craig Stanfield, sisters Eloise Barstad, Polly Haggerty, Fern Leinweber, and brothers Tom, Ted and John Elder.

Sandy had a flair for taking the ordinary and making something exceptional. When she lived in Ritzville, Washington she opened a boutique selling Hobe jewelry and Merle Norman cosmetics. She also enjoyed playing golf and bridge. After moving to Priest Lake to Elkins Resort, she redecorated the cottages and opened a gift shop. She loved to entertain and made her guests feel welcomed!

Sandy was such a classy woman! We all were more poised after spending time with her. We will carry her memory in our hearts forever!

Interment will be at Ritzville Memorial Cemetery under the direction of Danekas Funeral Home at a later date.
