Sandra “Sandy” Jane (Pallme) Warner

May 28, 1944 - June 20, 2022


Sandra “Sandy” Jane Pallme was born in St. Louis, Missouri on May 28, 1944, to George and Gladys Pallme.  Sandy found the love of her life in Thomas “Tom” Warner and they married in 1963, moving to Kansas City, Missouri in 1975. Two children, Lisa and Tom Jr, kept them busy and Sandy was a stay-at-home mom until her children entered junior high school, working first at a fabric import company and then as a bookseller, indulging both her love of reading and her work aspirations until her retirement.


She will be remembered for her laugh, her kindness, and her generosity. A loving mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt to many, she was also an adopted Mom or Grandma to all her children and grandchildren’s friends.


Even though she was tender-hearted she was a tough lady, beating breast cancer twice and surviving COVID 19 after being on a ventilator for 5 days, coming back a little slower of speech but just as feisty as ever.


She was preceded in death by her husband Tom, her parents George and Gladys, her stepmother Gloria, her brother-in-law Charlie, her nephew Ben, and her nieces Debbie and Gina. 


She leaves behind a family who loved her very much: her daughter Lisa, husband Mark and their children Kylan, Gabriel, and Jayden; and her son Tom, wife Angie and their children Kelsie and Zachary, her sisters Pat and Yvonne, her brother George, her sisters-in-law Betty, Cathy, and Gail, and their spouses and families, dozens of nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews.


There will be memorial gatherings in Kansas City and St. Louis in Fall 2022.
