Sandra “Sandy” Osbourn

Bismarck, N.D.

July 27, 1970-Aug. 3, 2020

Sandra (Sandy) Osbourn, 50, died suddenly after a very short illness on Aug. 3. Burial was back home in North Dakota and the family held a private memorial service to celebrate her life at the Church of St. Joseph, which was live streamed for all to see on Aug. 12.

Osbourn was born July 27, 1970, to Patricia and Nathan Osbourn in Bismarck, N.D. She graduated from Bismarck High School in 1989.

Osbourn was an extremely hard worker; at times she worked two jobs. She worked at various jobs throughout her career, but none she enjoyed more than her current position as a client coordinator for HealthMax Home Health Care.

She had several close friends and absolutely adored her parents. She was particularly close to her mom and dad, a devoted daughter, and cared for them deeply. She would see them as often as she could and spoke with them daily. She enjoyed motorcycle riding, crafting projects and always loved a good garage sale.

Sandy was incredibly kind-hearted, loving, and generous.  Her friends talk of what a great friend she was, how she was always there for them and would, “give them the shirt off her back.” Sandy will be dearly missed by all!

Survivors include the following: her loving parents, St Joseph, MN; her sister, Lisa (Roger Lenahan) Kittleson; nieces Katie and Hailey; nephew Johnathan; and a very large, loving, extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins in North Dakota.

She was preceded in death by grandparents Helen and Matt Dietrich and Helen and Jack Dupey.
