Dear Grady and Budny families,

Sandy was a great, happy person (my cousin who also was a bridesmaid at my 1970s wedding). We lived next door to each other when small children and her Grandma Budny lived on the other side of my family’s house. We always had fun playing with Sandy, Randy, and Suzie! Their parents were also fabulous people! Mary Budny always took our family, Mom and us kids, to picnics by the lake for us to swim, took care of me and my brothers and sister when my sister had bacterial meningitis as a child and almost died from it, and Sandy and siblings and us had to take the medication to prevent us from getting it. They were a very giving family.

The Budny family moved into a new house as children, but I always liked hanging around with Sandy and family. As I got older, I would take bus there as far as it would go, and walk the rest of the way. Years later as a young adult, Sandy and family moved back into her grandma’s house as they were building a new ranch home in Greenfield and sold the house they were living in I guess. We talked more again as teens and I asked her to stand up to my wedding in 1970. I was 19 years old (almost 20) when I got married, so Sandy must have been 17 or 18 years old.

Later in life, I would only see her once in a while. Came to StaffOne when I quit my job and worked temporary office jobs before I got a new one. About nine years ago when I retired early, I would meet her for lunch in West Allis near her office sometimes and treat her out to eat for her January birthday.

So sorry that I hadn’t done that the past few years, but kept in touch with emails or phone calls but not often enough!

God Bless Sandy and her family through this difficult time in your lives!

Love,
Mary Ann Malachowski (Wojtczak)

Also, I would have been to Sandy’s funeral if I wasn’t in Florida for 3 months until end of March, and would have known about it sooner! Mary Ann
