OVERBROOK, Kan. – Virginia “Ginny” Lee Sand, 82, passed away on Thursday, March 29, 2018, at Brookside Retirement Community, Overbook, Kan. She was born on Jan. 22, 1936, in Topeka, Kan., the daughter of Andrew and Hazel Coker Forbes.

Virginia had lived most of her life on her family farm between the Lyndon and Overbrook communities. After graduating from Lyndon High School in 1954, she attended Kansas State University to study elementary education. While there she met Gerald (Jerry) Sand, and they married on June 16, 1957, in Beatrice, Neb. To this union four children were born.

Virginia worked as a court service officer, serving Osage, Franklin and Coffey counties, until her retirement in 2001. She was a member of the Overbrook United Methodist Church and enjoyed studying the Bible later in her life. Virginia enjoyed painting, was a talented quilter, and had a great love for gardening. Getting together with friends and neighbors, she and Gerald loved playing cards, where there was always lots of laughter and good times. She enjoyed several travel adventures with friends and family, often times dragging Gerald along. More than anything, she always made holidays special and loved being with her kids, grandkids, and great grandkids.
