She was born on August 31, 1948, daughter of Edward and Jeanette (Masscey) Meyer. She married her life long love, Thomas G. Cullen on January 21, 1967, at Immanuel Congregational Church.
She was a 1966 graduate of Dubuque Senior High School. She was a homemaker most of her life and was most proud of many years of volunteer work, with the church and Dubuque Community Schools. She loved music and was proud she could be one of a handful of people who set up The Music Booster Club at Dubuque Senior High. Her family meant the world to her and her nurturing ways extended to helping other children. She worked as a computer operator back when companies had only one, at Crescent Electric. She later worked in the proof departments of two area banks (American Trust and Dubuque Bank and Trust). After raising her own children, she worked at Dubuque Montessori School as an assistant teacher. Later she worked as a sub para-professional at Bryant school. She loved spending time with her children and grandchildren. She was always thinking of the next craft/art project she could do with them. Her home was a bed and breakfast for many, but her family remained number one with her until the day she died.
Sandra is survived by her husband, Tom; her son, Patrick (Renee) Cullen; her daughter, Corissa (Gabe) Thompson; her 5 grandchildren, Shayla, Riley, Alayna, Cullen, and Stella; her brother, Edward Meyer; her sister Lori Datisman; and her brother, Steve Meyer.
Sandra was preceded in death by her father, Edward C. Meyer, and her mother Jeanette L. (Masscey) Meyer.
A Sandra Jo Cullen Memorial Fund has been established.
