In loving memory of Sandy J. Yoder


Sandy J. Yoder, 82, of Woodland, Washington, passed away on April 25, 2024.

Sandy was born on July 22, 1941, to Edward and Hattie Yoder in Salem, Oregon. He was the eldest of four children. They were raised on a farm in Canby, Oregon. He graduated from Canby High School in 1959 and then moved to Woodland. 

Sandy married Carolyn Scott on June 15, 1962, and welcomed three children shortly thereafter: Jody, Paula and Eddie Yoder. 

Sandy’s family meant the world to him; he never missed an opportunity to make memories with loved ones. He worked as a log scaler for 36 years, but upon retirement, he found his true passion: flower farming. 

Sandy was the epitome of selflessness. His heart knew no bounds, and that’s what made him so dear to so many. He was preceded in death by his father and mother. He is survived by his wife, three sisters, three children, seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. 

A celebration of life will be held in the summer of 2024 at the Yoder home. Sandy felt strongly about taking care of thy neighbor. Please consider an act of kindness in his honor.
