Sandra (Sandi) Jo Helland DeMars
Sandra (Sandi) Jo Helland DeMars, 57, gained her wings on Monday August 5th, 2019 at St. Luke’s Hospital in Duluth, MN. Family and friends were Sandi’s love and joy. She was always willing to help people, however she could. She will be missed by all those who’s lives crossed paths with hers. She was forever optimistic, finding a positive spin in every situation. She had a wicked dry wit that will be remembered by everyone. Sandi is survived by her husband Rick, her son Sean Swapinski, her father Orville (Beverly) Helland, and several sisters, brothers, step-children and grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her daughter Tricia, and mother Bette Helland.
