May 15, 1957 - November 9, 2021
Sandra Mary (Fragale) Woodhull of Maple Grove, Minnesota, passed away unexpectedly on November 9, 2021 at the age of 64. She will be remembered as a much-loved wife, mom, grandma, sister, aunt, daughter, teacher, and friend whose warmth, dynamic personality, and wholehearted love for those she cared about will be deeply missed and not forgotten. Sandy was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota on May 15, 1957, the oldest of five children. She met Rick Woodhull in her teens, married him in 1980, and enjoyed 41 happy years of marriage to the man she often described as "the best husband" she could have. They had two sons together, who brought her endless pride, joy, and laughter, and whom she supported unwaveringly in everything they did. She worked as a nurse while her boys grew up, and she then returned to school to pursue her passion for art and embarked on a second career as an art teacher. After earning her Master of Art Education from the U of M, she ultimately found what she called her "dream job" as a visual arts teacher at Perpich Center for the Arts. She truly loved her work, her co-workers, and especially her students. Outside of her work, she also enjoyed creating art of her own (including constantly searching for unconventional art materials and volunteering her artistic skills for local events), cooking Italian food, working on projects inside and outside her home, taking e-bike rides and walks, and, above all, conversations and activities with her loved ones. She was also content just spending time at her home, where she never stopped appreciating the beautiful lake view, and where she warmly welcomed friends and family often. Despite some health challenges, she lived a full and active life and was always on the lookout for opportunities to be of help to others. Sandy is survived by her husband Rick, her son Spencer (Halah) and his sons Adam and Jude, her son Tyler (Emily), her mother Annette Fragale, her siblings Diane "Dede" Gusek (Alan), Luann Fragale, Michele O'Brien (Thomas), and Louis Fragale, and many nephews, nieces, and friends. She was preceded in death by her father, Louis Fragale.
