Our beloved SandraLee York Ingebo, 72, of Klickitat, Wash., entered into rest in the arms of her Lord in the early morning hours October 7, 2016.
She was born in Vancouver, Wash., April 11, 1944 to Clarence Smith York & Ruth Healy York.
Sandy grew up and graduated from Pendleton high school in 1962. She went onto college for Cosmetology in Portland, Ore. She was a hairdresser for 45 years. She worked at Lloyd Center before moving to Hawaii to work at the Waikiki Hilton. She later moved back to the mainland and worked in The Dalles for LaHarvs for many years. She then opened her own shops starting with Kendra's LaTiara Beauty Salon and tanning, and later also bought Maggie's Hair Salon on 9th St., both in The Dalles.
She is preceded in death by her parents Clarence and Ruth York, her daughter Rene' Miner and her grandson Justin Miles-Barker.
Sandy was devoted to her church in Wishram where she was a deaconess. She was chair of the Klickitat community council and known for being the best cook around with many signature dishes.
As she was raising her family she also fostered children, took in any troubled or homeless teens, or anyone that needed help, love, or support. She believed in helping everyone she could. She was "mom" to all that knew her.
She is survived by her sister NormaJean York Nunamaker, daughters Vanessa Smith, Oce'anna Coleman, Elizabeth Spino, Christine Ingebo, Sarah Ingebo Miller and her son Kenneth Miner, foster son Rick Niemeier, her nieces and nephews. She had 19 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
She loved to travel including road trips along the coast line, Graceland, California, and the Hawaiian islands were a few of her favorites. She loved Maui.
A memorial service in her honor will be held Friday October 28 at 1 p.m. at Wishram Community Church with a potluck following.
Cards or flowers can be delivered to 505 5th St. or PO Box 262 Klickitat, WA 98628.
Love to all who cared & loved her.
