Following her education, Sandra was employed by Farm Egg for several years. On July 26, 1962, she was united in marriage to Norman Sorenson at the First Lutheran Church in Humboldt. The couple made their home in Humboldt where they raised their seven children. Sandra worked for a time at Excel Printing in Dakota City until happily deciding to become a full time grandmother to her grandchildren.
In recent years, Sandra enjoyed helping her daughters at the Fireside Restaurant where she was invaluable help and many of the customers called her grandma. She liked staying current on Facebook and in earlier years, enjoyed coon hunting with Norman. Above all, Sandra loved her grandchildren.
