Sandra "Sandy" Higbee, age 75, of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, joined her father and mother, Gerald and Lorraine (Peters) Brillhart, in heaven on Sunday, October 16, 2016, after a long illness.

She was born September 3, 1941, in Sharon, Wisconsin.

Sandy was united in marriage to Michael Higbee on May 29, 1982, in Janesville, Wisconsin. Together they raised four children.

Sandy is survived by her husband, Michael, of 34 years; children Michael (Angela) Boehning, Kelli Boehning, Susan Wagner, and Christopher (Alma) Boehning; her twin brother Gerald (Donna) Brillhart; sister Kay (Orlyn) Hansen; and many nieces and nephews. Some of Sandy's greatest joys in life were her grandchildren Rachael, Amelia, Ava, and Reina Boehning; Brittany (Mike) Luchterhand, Kayla, Nathan, and Nicholas Wagner; her great-grandsons Ethan and Jared Luchterhand; and her dog Tucker. She was preceded in death by her parents and nephew Shane Boehning.

Sandy was a wonderful wife, sister, mother, aunt, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. She enjoyed gardening, crafting, and taking care of her pets. Sandy was one of the kindest, gentlest souls to walk the earth; she never failed to help someone in need. She will be deeply missed by those that knew and loved her. We love you Sandy/Mom/Grandma!

A private family gathering will be held.
