Sandra Jean (Sandy) Pozolinski-Lebo, age 69, of Wausau, lost her long battle with Multiple Sclerosis and passed away on November 4, 2021. She was born in Menasha, Wisconsin on November 29, 1952, to the late Joseph and Lois (Stearns) Pozolinski. Sandy graduated from Menasha High School and then went on to study business at The University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh, where she obtained B.A. and MBA degrees followed by a career as a Financial Analyst at Gilbert Paper in Menasha. Sandy’s strength, bravery and resilience throughout her life were inspiring to all that had the pleasure of knowing her. Before MS robbed Sandy of her mobility, she enjoyed traveling including studying abroad in Ecuador as an exchange student, took joy in creating needlepoint designs and was an avid animal lover – especially her dear cats, Dulcie, Lucky, Ralph and her favorite, Muffie. Sandy was modest, humble, independent, and always had a positive outlook despite fighting MS for most of her life. Sandy loved her family, had a strong faith in God and always made her family feel important. She will always be remembered for her infectious laughter.
Sandy is survived by her husband of 38 years, Stuart E Lebo, Jr. She is further survived by her sister-in-law, Bonnie Pozolinski, as well as nieces, Sarrie (Michael) Devore and Chelsea Pozolinski, nephew, Nicholas Pozolinski, her stepbrothers Robin (Shelly) Williams and Jan (Chris) Williams, her stepsisters, Margo (Richard) Miller, Sandy Felzer and Diane Reinke and her brothers-in-law, Thomas (Patty) Lebo and Mark (Margaret) Lebo. Sandy is also survived by her great nephews, Grant, Reid, and Miles Devore.
Sandy was preceded in death by her parents, her brother, Gerald Pozolinski, and her in-laws, Stuart, and Leona Lebo.
A memorial service will be held at 11:00 AM on December 11th at Laemmrich Chapel, 312 Milwaukee Street, Menasha. Family and friends may gather at 10:00 am until the time of service.
