Obituary of Sandra Goodenough
Goodenough, Sandra, 76, of Nampa, died, Friday, August 12, 2022 at her home. Arrangements are under the direction of Accent Funeral Home and Cremation, Meridian.
Sandra Lee Goodenough passed peacefully on Friday, August 12, 2022 at home with her family close by. Sandra “Sandy” was born in Mitchell, South Dakota on August 15, 1945 to Mr & Mrs Pishek and raised by Gerry and Peggy Volk (Spraker) in San Juan Capistrano, California. Sandy graduated from Capistrano Union High and later moved to Idaho where she married David Goodenough. Early 1974 Sandy became a permanent fixture in Weiser, Idaho where, with the combination of “his” and “hers”, she raised six children. Although Sandy stood 4’9 she was a force to be reckoned with. She was known for not holding back her opinions (there were many!) and a knack for telling it like it is. Sandy was a volunteer girls softball coach, enjoyed the social aspects of waitressing and BINGO and with her ‘my door is always open’ attitude was known, and loved, as mom #2/counselor/free babysitter to many. We cannot fail to mention her wicked Christmas lasagna, another “door is always open” event.
Sandy is survived by her brothers: Michael Spraker, George Spraker (Heather); previous husbands: Leonard Chernoff and David Goodenough; her daughter Teresa Border (Mitch); son Shane Chernoff (Sarah); step children: Jody Goodenough-Fleming (Paul), James Goodenough, Dava Ramirez (Joe), Renea Goodenough. She was grandmother to: James (JD), Ashten, Eiko, David (DJ), Nicolas, Katie, Kacy, Dava Rose, Taylor, Jason, Nathan (deceased), Tyler, Trista, Tiara, Audrey, Stephany, Amy, Hunter, Elijah and many great grandchildren.
Thank you to Horizon Hospice (a special thank you to Ms. Cassie) for always treating Sandra with kindness, compassionate care and dignity during her passing. Our family will forever be grateful.
