Abby Lin (Bauer) Sandberg
January 21, 1979 ~ November 20, 2013
Our sweet Abby is with Jesus. She fought cancer with tenacious faith and was an inspiration to all of us. People were drawn to her gracious spirit and quick smile. Abby grew up in Orondo, where she attended elementary school. She then went to junior high and high school in Waterville, where she participated in cheerleading, band and basketball. Abby also played softball all through high school. Her senior year, the Shockers earned a berth to the State Playoffs. One special note is: Abby and her sisters, Lisa and Jeni, played together for two years. After high school, Abby worked for Mid State Bank at the Orondo branch for five years.
Abby married Jason Sandberg on August 16, 2003. They had two children, Reagan Andrew and Chloe Elizabeth. Abby was so excited to be a mom and decided that being a stay-at-home mom would be her new career and she was a wonderful, loving mother. Faith in Jesus was so important to Abby, that she was intentional about sharing her faith with her children. She enjoyed spending time with her entire family, especially when celebrating birthdays, holidays, or even a good wienie roast at her childhood home in Orondo. She looked forward to taking her children to the library for story time and weekly trips to Starbucks with her mom.
Abby is survived by her husband and children; her parents, Steve and Margo; sisters, Teresa Sanford, Lisa (Eric) Brain and Jeni (Tye) Nelson; brothers, Adam and Timm Bauer; her special grandma, (PamPam); two nieces; ten nephews; many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Her family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to her entire medical team in Wenatchee and Seattle. We were blessed to have had you all as part of this journey. Each and everyone showed her so much compassion and friendship during this difficult time.
A Memorial Service for Abby will begin at 11:00 a.m., Tuesday, December 3, 2013, at the Wenatchee Free Methodist Church, 1601 Fifth Street, Wenatchee. Arrangements are by Telford’s Chapel of the Valley, East Wenatchee.
