Our beloved daughter, wife, sister, mother, and grandmother, Sandra Dee Steiner Kaftan (52), died in her sleep on August 29th, 2018.
Sandy was born in Fort Carson, Colorado to Patricia and Gary Jordan on February 11, 1966. She was raised in Billings by her mother and adoptive father, Joseph Steiner. Sandy attended Garfield and Orchard Elementary schools, Riverside Junior High, and Billings Senior High.
Family was most important to Sandy. She was the proud mother of daughters, Brooke and Morgan, and grandmother of grandson, Joseph. She always wanted to be the “favorite auntie” to all of her nieces and nephews.
Sandy was preceded in death by her father Joseph Steiner, biological father Gary Jordan, and grandparents Wilford and Lula Roether, Dale and Catherine Jordan, and Joseph and Daisy Steiner.
Sandy leaves behind her mother Patricia Steiner Warden, husband Michael Kaftan, daughters Brooke (Pat) Kessler and Morgan Hove, grandson Joseph Hove, sisters Stacey (Michael) Victoria and Shawna (Dustin) Strandell, brother Joseph (Crystal) Steiner, and step-sons Jason and Tyler Kaftan, along with numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Sandy had a very loving and generous spirit, an incredible sense of humor, and a gift for telling stories and finding the good in everyone.
Although Sandy’s family and friends will miss her tremendously, we know she is in a better place and at peace.
Cremation has taken place. Funeral services will be held at Cremation and Funeral Gallery on Tuesday September 4th at 10:30 am, with a reception to follow at St. Bernard Catholic Church at noon.
