Sandy was born on December 14, 1939 in Fisk, MO. She was a homemaker and babysitter up to her passing. What she loved the most was ALL her babies, whether they were her children or others’. She regularly expressed how much she missed them when they would grow up and she no longer babysat them. She was always thrilled when they would come to visit with her as they got older, and some would bring their own children. She lived for her babies!
Sandy loved everybody and welcomed everyone with open arms and food on the table. She and Mike always cooked enough to feed a village, no matter what on the stove, and often times the village would come.
Sandy leaves to cherish her memories: her children, John (Phyllis) Dinolfo, Ron (Sandy) Dinolfo, Lisa Dinolfo, Donnie (Bobbie) Dinolfo, her stepchildren, Mike (Angie) Dinolfo, Debbie (Steve) Robison, Teresa (Mike) Carpenter, her sisters, Emma Lou (JD) Scott, Deloris Ann (Marv) Kitchen, her brother Mike Waters, along with her fifteen (15) grandchildren, thirty (30) great-grandchildren, two (2) great-great-grandchildren, and a multitude of nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 47 years, Michael Joseph Dinolfo, her infant son, Michael Dinolfo, her father Ben, her mother, Lillie, her four brothers, Mickey, Larry, Lonnie, and Gary Waters, and her two (2) sisters, Connie DeBerry and Linda Mae Howell.
