Sandra J. Wentz passed away from lung cancer, Wednesday, July 6, 2016, surrounded by her family. For 66 years, she laughed with, teased and loved her many friends and family.

She was born April 16, 1950 to parents Joseph & Joan (Hiser) Gentille in Mansfield. Sandi graduated from Ontario High School with the class of 1968, and married the love of her life, Robert “Brad” Wentz on June 19, 1976. They moved to Crestline the same year and went on to raise and nurture two wonderful children, Christopher and Amanda.

Sandi worked at Carlisle Engineering in Crestline for over 25 years, until retiring as the production scheduler in 2008.

In her spare time, Sandi took pleasure in tending to her flower and vegetable gardens, walking, or watching a riveting episode of Downton Abbey. Sandi was a firm believer in her faith and prayer and attended Crossroads Church quite frequently over the last 5 years. Above all else, Sandi cherished spending time and taking care of her family.

She is survived by husband Robert “Brad” Wentz; children Christopher Wentz and Mandy (Lynda Leclerc) Glauer; grandchildren Colton, Dylan, Elaina, Zoe, and Mia; siblings Greg (Judy) Gentille, Peg Owens, Randy Gentille, Barb (Chip) Green, Brad (Mary) Gentille, and Laura Mileti; brother-in-law Greg (Shirley) Wentz, sister-in-law Jodi Ogle and numerous nieces and nephews.

Through her life, Sandi mourned the passing of family members very special to her:  her parents and grandparents, her precious granddaughter Hannah, brothers-in-law Joe Owens and Ray Mileti and her beloved dog Molly.

Although no public service will be held at this time, a celebration of life in Sandi’s memory will be announced at a later date, and her family hopes that you will hold her in your heart as you remember her in your own special way.

For contributions in her memory, make checks payable to Richland Humane Society and take/send to: 3025 Park Ave W., Ontario, Ohio 44906.

Snyder Funeral Homes is honored to serve Sandi’s family and encourages you to share a fond memory or message of condolence to them at

    I’m so sorry for your loss, words just can’t express the sorrow you must feel. Sandy was one of my all time favorite patients at Dr. Frasz’s office. We had many good laughs and shared many happy grandchildren stories. Her cookies were the best. Just know she was loved by many.

  • Brad, Mandy and Chris,
    I was so shocked and am so sad to hear about Sandi. ( I just saw you guys at Meijers not too long ago)
    She was my 1st friend when I went to work at “Geauga” Alias CEP many years ago, and we both started out in the computer room with Bob K as our boss,
    Sandi was a great person and I know how sad you must be.
    We shared a lot of memories and friends there and all about our families.

  • I was so sorry to hear of Sandi’s death. My deepest sympathy and prayers go out to all of you. I know she will be greatly missed. Joanne Wrasse

  • A very special lady. A very special friend. I will cherish the memories until we meet again. Love you, Kathe
