Sandi was born in Greenfield, MA and raised in Northborough, a daughter of the late Myron "John" and Riella (Emery) Joslyn. She was a 1973 graduate of Algonquin High School, and a member of the cheerleading squad and softball team. She attended North Adams State College, where she met her husband Phil and many lifelong friends.

She was employed through the years at The Grille, David Cristi's, Elizabeth's (Indian Meadows), Kennedy's Pub, and most recently at TJMAXX.
After leaving Northborough in 2005, she resided for many years in Harrison, ME, where she enjoyed nature, boating, and playing (and always winning) mini golf and pool.

Most of all, she enjoyed being with her family at home, and on vacations in Maine and Palm Island, FL. Sandi was a doting mother and grandmother. She will be dearly missed.
