Sandra (Sandy) Lee Maroste, 82, of Virginia, died peacefully on Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2020, at Waterview Pines in Virginia.
She was born Nov. 25, 1937 in Virginia, Minn., to Samuel (Bert) and Arthemise (Artie LaFrance) Slade. She was a lifelong resident of Virginia. She was a graduate of Roosevelt High School Class of 1955. She was employed by Virginia Regional Center for many years as a Processing Aide in Central Supply Services. In her earlier years, she was a member of a small sewing club with her classmates, and also a member of the Virginia Bowling Association. She enjoyed playing solitaire, doing crossword puzzles and reading. She was an avid true Minnesota Twins, Wild and Vikings sports fan. Sandy’s greatest pride and joy were watching her children and grandchildren’s sporting events and other activities. She was known as “Grandma Sandy” to many.
