Sandra (Smith) McGhee

January 11, 1937 ~ October 26, 2022 (age 85) 85 Years Old


Once upon a time, a beautiful and amazing soul was gifted to our world.

Sandra McGhee passed away surrounded by her loved ones October 26, 2022 at her home near 

Fairfield. She was born January 11, 1937 to Alva and Dolly Smith in Indiana.

As a young woman, she met Don McGhee, fell wildly in love and married him at the age of 16. 

For 69 years of constant adventures, their love remained strong and true. They welcomed 

three children into their lives along the way; Sharron, Terrie and Timothy.

They moved and settled in Fairfield, Montana 21 years ago and enjoyed their quiet lifestyle.

Sandra was always a terrific cook, artist, supportive mother along with a nurturing personality. 

She was involved with Bright Eyes animal shelter for many years; where she’d cuddle the 

unwanted and orphaned animals.

Sandra is survived by her husband Don, Children Sharron Pennetta, Terrie (Steve) Nylund and 

Timothy (Linda) McGhee; grandchildren Tiffany, Sarah, Carly, Jamie and Adam as well as great￾grandchildren Amaya, Raelynn, Kaleigh, Brayden, Greyson and Berkleigh.

There will be no services per Sandra’s request. Her family would like to express sincere 

gratitude and appreciation to the Peace Hospice program, specifically the care provided by Sue 

and Barb

We will miss her presence in our lives. May Sandra be blessed with gold wings.
