Sandra Pullum Obituary

Sandra Jo Pullum, affectionately known as Sandy by her loved ones, was a beacon of light that shined brightly throughout her 61 years of life. Born on November 7, 1962, in Lansing, MI, Sandy embarked on a journey filled with love, creativity, and generosity that would touch the hearts of everyone she encountered. On February 1, 2024, in Grand Rapids, MI, she concluded her valiant battle with cancer, leaving behind a legacy of warmth and inspiration. Sandy's life was a testament to the power of positivity and the beauty of the human spirit. She embraced each day with a passion for the simple joys of life: painting canvases with the colors of her soul, baking treats that sweetened the days of her family and friends, solving puzzles that mirrored the complexity of life, and reveling in the tranquility of nature. Sandy had a particular fondness for watching birds, a hobby that allowed her to soar alongside them in spirit, free and unburdened.  Family was the cornerstone of Sandy's world. She is survived by a tapestry of lives that she wove with threads of unconditional love: her daughter and son in-law, Jennifer and Bobby Schwab; her sister, Nancy Hahn; her brothers, Jeff and David Pullum; her beloved grandsons, Javery and Brody Schwab; sister in law, Jill Pullum; nephews: Matt Hahn and Jason Hahn; and special persons in her heart, Mark Ball and Stacey Rottman. Her parents, Barbara and Gerald Pullum, her sister-in-law Debra Pullum, and her brother-in-law Don Hahn, who predeceased her, have now welcomed her into the eternal family reunion. Her niece, Willow Pullum, will carry forward the light of her aunt's enduring spirit.  Loving, generous, creative—these are the words that best encapsulate the essence of Sandy. She poured her love into every encounter, her generosity knew no bounds, and her creativity was a wellspring that never ran dry. Those who were fortunate enough to know her witnessed the embodiment of kindness and an unwavering commitment to making the world a brighter place for all.  Sandy's life reminds us that every moment is a precious gift, and that in the words of the great author Leo Buscaglia, "Life is a paradise for those who love many things with a passion." She lived by this ethos, loving not just many things, but many people, with a fervent passion that fueled her journey from its beginning to its graceful end.  As we celebrate Sandy's life, let us carry forward the torch of her indomitable spirit. Let us paint our own canvases with bold and loving strokes, bake sweetness into the lives of others, solve the puzzles that challenge us with patience and resilience, and take the time to be outdoors, where the whispers of nature speak to us of the beauty of existence.  Sandra Jo Pullum's story does not end here. It continues in the laughter of her grandsons, in the brushstrokes of a painting, in the flutter of birds' wings, and in the hearts of everyone she has touched. Her life was a masterpiece, a symphony of love and joy, and though the music has quieted, the melody will resonate forever.  In honor of Sandy, let us embrace the journey of life with the same courage and joy that she did. Let us be loving. Let us be generous. Let us be creative. And above all, let us remember that in the grand tapestry of life, every thread matters, and Sandy's thread was woven with the golden yarn of unwavering positivity and grace.  A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
