Vagt, Sandra Jean 75

Sandy Vagt passed peacefully May 28, 2022 at the age of 75 after her battle with Alzheimer’s.


Sandra Jean Mahoney was born December 6, 1946 in Rochester, MN to Edward J and Caroline J Mahoney (Hoyer).  She was the oldest of 3 children. She attended John Marshall High School and Community College in Rochester. Sandy had 2 children and made her home in Plymouth, MN. She enjoyed working as a graphic arts professional at Circuit Science in Plymouth MN for many years. Sandy moved to Howard Lake MN in the late eighties. She lived and worked in the HL, Cokato & Dassel area for the remainder of her life.


Sandy was charismatic, vibrant, and beautiful. She was fun, a bit crazy, generous and a friend to everyone. She was also a strong, sassy and fiercely independent woman. She was full of life and enjoyed watching movies, listening to music, cooking, baking, playing board games, and spending time with her grandchildren. One of Sandy’s love languages was food. She was an excellent cook who showed her love and care by bringing food or bread to family and friends or cooking a grandchild their favorite dish.


Sandy is survived by her brother Michael Mahoney (Marilyn), sister Patti Jo Hertweck (Rodney), daughter Miechaleen (Micki) Diers (Tom), daughter Melynda Vagt (Bill Lesnau), grandsons Nathen Stenmark, Cory Stenmark, Ryan Stenmark, great grandchildren Brielle Marie Stenmark, Carson Shawn Laudenbach (Stenmark), Jaxon Arnaldo Huberty-Stenmark, Nieces Nicole Bonecutter (Mike), Megan Haws (Lynn) Lacy Barlow (Jason) many cousins and many friends.


Sandy is now at Peace with the Lord. She is reunited in Heaven with her parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and her beloved dogs.


We are truly grateful for the care, love and support she received the last several years with the Cokato Charitable Trust family.


Memorial services will be held at 2PM, Saturday June 25, 2022 at Gethsemane Lutheran Church in Dassel with visitation 1 hour prior to service. The Rev. Janine Olson will officiate.
