Sandra S Schwarz Green

Sandy grew up in Kirkland on Lake Washington and graduated from Lake Washington High School, class of 1962.

Sandy was very athletic and during her lifetime she enjoyed playing tennis, gymnastics, sailing, swimming, boating and barefoot water skiing on the lake.


After high school she attended Ambassador College in Pasadena, CA where she met Robert Green, they married in 1965 and had two children together, Wendy and Todd. Sandy provided a loving home environment where her children flourished, she loved being a Mom and was also a beloved wife and grandmother. Sandy lovingly cared for her mother Margaret Swartz until her passing in 2009. Her family and faith were the love of her life.

After returning to Kirkland in the early 70’s she worked for the City of Rose Hill Water Department and then for the City of Kirkland until her retirement in 2010.

Through her church she met and married Carl Anderson. Sandy and Carl were very active together in their church. They liked playing cards and they thoroughly enjoyed each other’s company. They lovingly cared for each other throughout their marriage.

Sandy loved people and was loved in return. She would light up a room wherever she went. She had a very distinctive laugh that will be missed by all who knew her.

Sandy is survived by her husband, children, grandchildren and many other family members.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday May, 19th, 1:00PM at the Heritage Hall located at 203 Market Street, Kirkland, WA.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the American Foundation for the Blind

    During our family visit in 2006 we saw Sandy as a warm, cordial, sparkling woman who gave loving attention to others.
    Her passing must be a great loss to her loved ones.

  • Sharilyn Matthews says:

    I loved Sandy. She was a joy to be around! I loved her hugs whenever I’d see her and her laughter. She will be missed!

  • Jan Hover says:

    Sandy was a true and generous friend to all she met. We went on several trips together (Hawaii, Lake Chelan, San Juan Island) and always had a great time.
    Yes, she had an infectious laugh to encourage others to join in. She loved her gardens and truly had a green thumb. I was really looking forward to seeing her during my June visit as we relocated to sunny AZ in late 2012. I’ll miss you, Sandra Sue. Precious Lord, Take Her Hand.

  • LeeAnn Luker says:

    Sandy was a beloved friend for many years. She set the bar high as an example of generosity, thoughtfulness and caring. It was impossible to ever “out-give” her! To say that she will be missed is a great understatement. It is an enormous comfort to know ours is an eternal friendship. May God comfort her family and all who are missing her.

  • Missy & Frank Henning says:

    Sandy was such a loving, caring and thoughtful person. She always had kind words and good humor to share with everyone. Her family was her whole world, but she touched the lives of so many and she will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. May time and happy memories help to lessen the pain of losing her.

  • Doug Howe says:

    I have many fond memories of Sandy tending her garden at the lake house; she had a green thumb and made the yard look like a park. We also spent many feasts together making sure Grandma and her friends had a wonderful experience. She was very devoted to her family and those around her. Our thoughts are with the family.

  • Jim & Mimie Pfau says:

    Mimie and I greatly miss Sandy, her joy and humor. I had known her since the 80’s and we always had great fun playing cards.

    My Dearest friend, Our Angel
    She was the gentlest and kindest person anyone would ever meet. She loved everyone.
    Sandy lived her life always thinking of others no matter what the cost was to her. Always there period.
    She would do anything and everything for everybody.
    We will walk together, on your chosen trail, every Tuesday and Thursday for the rest of time. we will exercise together every Monday and Thursday for the rest of time. She can never truly leave us. Love You.

  • Michelle Moore says:

    It seems there aren’t sufficient words to express the loss her passing has created. Kind, sweet, gentle, fun, loving, warm-hearted, generous, giving, are but a few words to describe the Sandy I knew and loved. While the pain of missing her is incredible, the hope of seeing her again, whole and happy is what carries me through. Love to all of her family. Love you forever Sandy!! <3
