February 23, 2014 – Calgary, AB
Sandra Mueller of Calgary, Alberta, passed away February 23, 2014 at the age of 52 years after a hard fought battle with cancer.
Sandra was born to Gottfried and Sophia Konopka on June 4, 1961, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She was married to Lothar Mueller on September 19, 1980, and they lived together in Manitoba before moving to Calgary, Alberta with their two sons in 1998.
Sandra was a homemaker, and spent her time actively involved in her sons’ lives, ensuring that they grew up to be upstanding, godly men. When her sons moved out, she became a foster mom, and worked in that role for almost 11 years, taking care of babies and toddlers in the foster care system. She was also very passionate about the outdoors, preferring to spend her time walking though Bowness Park and out in the mountains with Lothar. She loved spending time with her grandchildren as well, and she was happiest when she was surrounded with her boys and her grandkids.
Sandra is survived by her husband, Lothar Mueller; her two children, Jeffrey and Trevor Mueller; her daughter-in-law, Kathleen Mueller; her three grandchildren, Natasha, Anya, and Sebastian Mueller; her parents, Sophia Knepper, and Gottfried and Kate Konopka; and her siblings, Jurgen Konopka, Heike Muller (nee Konopka), Bernd Konopka, Ute Knepper, Reinhard Konopka, Peter Konopka, and Petra Pedersen (nee Konopka). She is predeceased by her brother, Uwe Konopka.
