Obituary for Sandra Lee Butler

Sandra Lee Butler died at Oklahoma Heart Institute in Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 17, 2018. Born on September 17, 1944, Sandra was 73 years of age, loved by family and friends, and missed by everyone who was touched by her kindness.

She is survived by son, Kevin Mendenhall and wife, Teresa; three grandchildren, Matthew, Destiny and Logan Mendenhall; all of Mannford, Oklahoma.
She is also survived by her sister, Brenda Butler and husband Johnny of Olive, Oklahoma as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles – all for whom she was a favorite.
Sandra was preceded in death by her mother, Almeta Welborn, five of her mother’s brothers whom she loved having as uncles and aunt Bobbie who was her best buddy.

Working as a phlebotomist for St John Medical System in Tulsa, Oklahoma for 30 years, Sandra took on many roles. Her last years were spent as an educator – training hundreds of St John employees to be the Best Phlebotomist Possible. She travelled across Oklahoma, Kansas and into Texas, holding classes and encouraging her students to always consider the patient first. The training manuals she photographed and authored are still in service today.
The last 10 years of her mother’s life, Sandra was a tireless caregiver. When we worried about the burden she carried, she would make us laugh with stories of the “misadventures” of caregiving.
Retirement was a wonderful time for Sandra. She moved to Grove, Oklahoma where she enjoyed coffee on the deck, fishing when she wanted to and oh yes; those grandchildren. The only competition for grandma’s time were her three furbabies; Daisy, Rosebud and Sophie.
Sandra taught us all to simply love one another better.
