Sandi Holdeman

September 19, 1956 — February 22, 2023


Sandra Holdeman, known to her family and friends as Sandi, of Warsaw, passed away at her home surrounded by her children on Wednesday, February 22, 2023 at the age of 66. Born on September 19, 1956 in Fort Wayne, IN, Sandi was the daughter of Charles and Joan (Fruchey) Gibson.

A devoted, loving, and compassionate mother, Sandi’s family was her whole world. She worked hard as a single mom to provide everything she could for her two children, never missed her daughter’s sporting events, and loved to spoil her children and grandchildren with homemade cookies. Sandi was a skilled bartender, famous for her Strawberry Daiquiri and homemade Kahlua. Athletic in her younger years, Sandi would bike from Warsaw to Fort Wayne, and, most recently, she walked her Malamute around her neighborhood. Sandi also loved dolphins, turquoise, sapphires, and spending time with her family and friends at the lake or on a beach.

Sandi will be missed by her son, Jim (Jodi) Rose; daughter, Ashley (Elena Archer) Holdeman; grandchildren,, Hope, Elijah, Gabriel, Micah, Josiah, and Johnathan Rose; sisters, Lois Shatzer and Penny VanHoozen; and boyfriend, Jim Fribley. She was preceded in death by her parents.
