Sandy M. Brinker

Sandy went to join our Lord on August 3, 2014.  She is survived by her husband of 29 years, Jerry, whom she loved dearly; her two beloved stepsons, Tim (Shellie) Brinker of Oregon, and Todd (Janice) Brinker of Florida; her two adored nephews, Blaine (Brenda) Pierce and Brad Pierce, both of Colorado; grandson Andrew and granddaughters Allie, Lexi, Julianna and Sophie; great nephew Jayson and great niece Kylee.  She is preceeded in death by her sister and best friend, Sharon Pierce Brownfield, and her parents, Art and Gladys Reinking.  

Sandy had several passions in life including Christ and her Church,family, gardening, celebrating Christmas (her lights extravaganza), playing games and doing puzzles.  Sandy was a bright light in our family.  She only had kind words for everyone she met.  She was born and raised on a farm in Brighton, CO which helped develop her strong work ethic.  She retired from the Colorado Wool Growers, where she was executive secretary.  Her loving outreach to everyone she met will be greatly missed.  

Charitable donations can be made to the Lutheran Church of the Cross in care of the Sandy Brinker Fund.

  6. Jerry and family,

    we are so sorry to hear of your loss. Sandy was beautiful, kind, and made wonderful pie. We will remember her generous heart with great fondness.

  7. I would like to offer my deepest sympathies to you. I know the pain of a broken heart. Our Heavenly Father feels our pain. Psalms 34:18 assures us that He is near to those broken at heart. He does, however, hold out a promise that in the very near future He will wipe out all tears of sorrow and pain from our eyes and death will be no more. (Revelation 21:3-5) He also promises to remember all those in the memorial tombs (graves) and restore them to life. (John 5:28,29) Until those words are fulfilled, may you find much peace and comfort in God and in His promises found in the Holy Scriptures.

  8. Jerry — I had dinner with Judy Byington the other night and learned of your wife's sudden passing.  My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
