Tuesday, October 27th, 2020

Sandra Jean Sopher, 68, a lifelong Marblemount & Concrete area resident, passed away at her home in Concrete, WA on Friday, October 23, 2020.  She was born June 5, 1952 in Sedro-Woolley, WA, the daughter of Thurman and Phyllis (Galbreath) Medford.  Sandra was raised in Hamilton and attended school in Sedro-Woolley.

    To Sandy’s Family, so sorry for your loss! Sandy will be sorely missed! Sandy and Lonnie are a memorable part of the Marblemount Community, for us, esp in the early 80’s thru 90’s, when Sandy decorated her house for every Holiday, and Lonnie boomed his Cannon for the 4th! At work, Sandy took care of her Community in countless ways. Her Home Decorations lit up at Christmas was always heartwarming! Sending prayers for comfort to you all.

    I remember Sandy as a warm, welcoming presence at Shim Shell in Marblemount. She always took the time to ask me how things were going in my life. I know that she helped some of the less fortunate up here in ways not everyone would. I will miss her friendly smile and would have liked the opportunity to have gotten to know her better. She will be missed.

    Sorry to hear about Sandy.
    Will always remember the 4 of July parties back in the 80’s. Such fun times with family.
    Love and prayers to Cheri and Family.

    I got to know Sandy while working at the Log House Inn at Marblemount in the 1970’s. Sandy and Lonnie were fun to be around. Lonnie had the best sense of humor. He would tell jokes continuously. He always cracked me up. Two or three weeks ago, I stopped by to see Sandy at the Grocery Store in Marblemount. I was so glad to see her. We talked about the good old days. I still can’t believe she’s gone.
