Sandra Jean Redman

Sandra Jean Redman, 65, died on April 29, 2017 at her home.

Sandra was born on September 20, 1951 in Salmon, Idaho to C.L. and Deloris (Berry) Gilpin.

From her early childhood days, Sandra enjoyed a wonderful life surrounded by loving grandparents, parents, siblings, and friends. She loved to spend weekends out on the Gilpin Ranch with her grandparents. It was always a special treat every summer for her to go camping at Iron Lake with her family. She spent many years as a member of 4H which was taught by her grandparents.

Shortly after she graduated from Salmon High School, she met the love of her life. Sandra married Bruce Allen Redman on July 24, 1970 at the Methodist Church in Salmon.

Sandra worked with AT&T for 30 years until her retirement. In her 30 years with AT&T, she had 22 years of perfect attendance. She started her career as an operator. She then was promoted to a payroll clerk. Her next adventure was support coordinator for the sales team and she worked in Florida, New York, Boston, and Chicago.

After 10 years of retirement, she had the opportunity join on part-time with the crew at Lee’s Candy on October 23, 2008. There she made many wonderful friends, not only from the staff, but also the clientele.

Sandra had many hobbies. These included quilting, ceramics, painting, needle point, yard work, bowling, fishing, and camping in her motor home. She was also a music lover and loved spending time with her family.

She enjoyed Boise State football so much that Bruce and she were season ticket holders for over 20 years. She also enjoyed taking trips including going to Disneyland several times, Las Vegas with friends to watch NASCAR, Branson with her mother and father, northern Idaho with her sister and brother-in-law, and the annual family reunion campouts in Stanley and Mackay.

Sandra was a member of Fort Running Bear RV Resort. She also loved to volunteer to help under privileged families at Christmas time.

She was the most amazing mother and wife a daughter and husband could ever hope for. She was never too busy to take time for her family. Her love and compassion was so genuine and came straight from her precious heart. Her two grandsons were the light of her life. She loved those boys to pieces. Sandra was and still is a true angel in our lives and she will be deeply missed.

She was preceded in death by her mother and father, and her sister, Dianne Gilpin Spaeth, all from Salmon, Idaho.

Sandra is survived by her husband, Bruce Allen Redman of Boise; her daughter, Shawna Redman Boyd (Buddy) of Nampa, Idaho; two grandsons, Riley Allen Boyd and Morgan James Boyd, both of Nampa; her sister Susan Stout (Otis) of Salmon; her brother Harold Gilpin (Karen) of Salmon, her brother-in-law, Scott Spaeth, of Salmon; and 7 nieces and nephews, all of Salmon.
