Laura Ann Sandager 1961–2020 Nerstrand—Laura Ann (Hamre) Sandager From Nerstrand, Minnesota passed away peacefully in her home on December 20th, 2020. She was surrounded by family in her final breaths. Laura was born in St. Paul, Minnesota on October 4th, 1961, graduated from Saint Paul Johnson Senior High School in 1979, and received a degree in retail merchandising from the University of Minnesota in 1984. She married Kirk Kevin Sandager on June 23rd, 1984 and was married for 36 years. Laura received her gallbladder cancer diagnosis two years ago with a prognosis of three to six months without treatment. The Lord blessed her with two years, during which she was able to live nearly symptom free from chemo treatments and saw every day as a gift from God. Kirk and Laura used this time to focus on what is truly important in life and created wonderful memories with each other by traveling, spending quality time with their children, and loving on their six grandchildren. While contemplating her obituary, she often wondered what the right words were to describe "a completely ordinary person who lived an ordinary life." Laura lived anything but an ordinary life. She never received any awards, except the world's most patient and loving wife. No certificates were received, except living out complete sacrificial love as the greatest mother and grandmother anyone could have hoped for. No achievements were made, except the most loving friend, family member, and sweetest person one could ever find. Perhaps she did not achieve in the ways the world values, but anyone who was acquainted with her knew of her strong faith in Jesus Christ, her calm and easygoing manner, and appreciated her sense of humor; she was truly beautiful and genuine both inside and out. Laura is survived by her husband, Kirk Sandager and their three daughters, Jonathan and Beth (Sandager) Rabe, Linda Sandager, and Rachel Sandager; six grandchildren; her brother, Thomas (Michele) Hamre; her sister-in-law, Sue (Bruce Robertson) Hamre; niece, Sydney Hamre; and nephew, Dylan Hamre. She is preceded in death by her parents, Ronald Hamre and Carol (Peterson) Hamre, and her brother, David Hamre. A visitation will be held on Tuesday, December 22, 2020 4:00-7:00 p.m. at Boldt Funeral Home in Faribault, Minnesota. Funeral Service will be 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, December 23, 2020 at New Life Church in Wanamingo, Minnesota. Interment will be at Valley Grove Cemetery in Nerstrand.
