Age 66, of Jackson, passed away peacefully at her daughter’s home on Monday, March 30, 2020 under the loving care of her family and Elara Caring Hospice. Sandra was born in Jackson to Marvin and Jane (McGlinch) Thomsen and graduated from Jackson High School in 1971. On May 7, 1976 she was married to James Dean Porter who preceded her in death in 2008. Sandra and Jim raised their family in the Vandercook Lake area, where she has lived for 36 years. Family was the focus of her life and she was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother and sister. Sandra is survived by her son, Andrew (Heather) Porter of Jackson; daughter, Janie (Rodney Jr) Voorheis of Jackson; grandchildren, Logan Porter, Hailey and Noah Voorheis; brother, Chris (Sharon) Thomsen; brother-in-law, William Porter and several nephews.
