My name is Sandra, but I answer more readily to Sandy. My husband Wayne and I have lived in Oskaloosa since 1965. We both grew up on farms in Northeast Kansas, and I attended a one-room schoolhouse for three years. I love small towns. My husband is a retired pastor and we have three grown sons and four grandchildren. I worked for 25 years at the Bank of Oskaloosa, then retired and became the secretary here at Living Water. In my youth I loved horseback riding and caring for infants and toddlers. Now I love to read Christian novels.
Our church has a leadership team comprised of elders and pastors.
Jon Henry is employed at Lawrence Paper Company. He served on the Oskaloosa School Board for 12 years, four as president. Jon and his wife, Judy, currently own a wholesale greenhouse business called "A Time To Plant". He loves to spend his free time with his four children, and he also loves to hunt and fish.
