Sandra Lee (Davis) Mickelson, 73, of Virginia Beach, VA. passed away on Wednesday, March 25th, 2020 after a long battle with Alzheimer's Disease. Sandy was born on December 29th, 1946 in Tallahassee, FL to Clifford and Donna Davis. She moved to Sioux Falls, SD as a child and went to Washington High School where she met the love of her life, Dennis Mickelson.

She graduated from Washington High School and then married Dennis on July 10, 1965. The United States Navy sent them to Norfolk, VA - with Sandy embarking on her first career as a Navy wife. Over the years, the Navy sent them up and down the East Coast with stops back in the Midwest. Along the way, they welcomed three children, Scott, Denise and Chris.

The last stop in their Navy adventure landed them in Virginia Beach. It was there that Sandy began her career in banking. She started with the Bank of Virginia and stayed with them through all the various transitions - Signet, First Union, Wachovia and Wells Fargo. She was with the bank for almost 30 years.

Dennis and Sandy planned to spend their retirement travelling the U.S. in their RV - visiting their two grandsons in Fredericksburg, VA and all of their family back in South Dakota and Minnesota. They were able to make one epic trip out to South Dakota and the Black Hills, visiting family and entertaining their grandson, Jonathan. Unfortunately, Alzheimer's had other plans for their retirement after that.

Sandy loved many things - her husband, Dennis, her children, her grandsons, her friends and Jesus. She loved them all fiercely. Sandy was also creative and made many beautiful things with her hands. She made clothes for her kids and she crocheted and quilted blankets for her grandsons. She really found her calling when she started beading and had a group of ladies that she beaded with, Thursdays @Gu's. There are people all over the U.S. wearing her creations.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Clifford and Donna Davis of Tallahassee, FL; her in-laws Norman and Eleanor Mickelson of Sioux Falls, SD; her brothers James Davis of Tallahassee, FL, Allen Davis of Minneapolis, MN, and Ellis Davis of Tampa, FL; her brother-in-law Gary Mickelson of Minot, ND; her sisters Shirley (Davis) Plymel of Tallahassee, FL and Nancy (Davis) Wingate of Millsboro, DE. She is survived by her husband, Dennis Mickelson of Virginia Beach, VA; her sons Scott Mickelson and Chris Mickelson of Virginia Beach, VA; her daughter and son-in-law, Todd and Denise (Mickelson) Campbell of Fredericksburg, VA; her grandsons, Cody and Jonathan Campbell of Fredericksburg, VA; brothers-in law, Gene and Gloria Mickelson of Minneapolis, MN, Bill and Rebecca Mickelson of Phoenix, AZ, and Rick and Diane Mickelson of Sioux Falls, SD. There are also many nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews.

God bless Dennis and all Sandy's family I pray for you all. Sandy was a very sweet and loving lady and a very dear friend to me and I will never forget the last time I seen her all she wanted was hugs and kisses. She was so sweet I had to hug and kiss her the whole visit I just loved her so dearly. I will miss you Sandy but you are resting in peace now and I will see you again on that beautiful shore. God be with you all and remember all the memories and it will help you to think of her beautiful smile. In my prays. Friend of yours from HRCC Shelia
