Shirley “Sally” Jane Bestor (Sandvik), passed away 11.12.13 from long term heart disease.

Sally was born to Engvald A. (Eng) and Dorothy J. (Meier) Sandvik of Harmony, MN on February 19, 1936. Her only brother Keith Sandvik (Betty Amdahl) Rochester, MN was born in 1938.

Sally married Lowell H. Engle (deceased) Harmony, MN in 1953. They later divorced. Their union bore three children: Terry R. Engle, Harmony, MN, DebRae Sandvik (Engle), LeRoy, MN, and Douglas T. Engle, (Mary Jo Kroeger), rural Cresco, IA.

Sally married Garth M. Bestor from Granger, MN in 1961. They had three children: Ty Bestor, (Dacia Windler), Harmony, Tonya Bestor , McHenry, IL, and Chad Bestor (Jill Duerfeldt), Kenai, AK.

Sally loved her country home six miles west of Harmony where she enjoyed spending time gardening. There she started her home business personalizing china. Her business blossomed into a gift shop in her basement for forty plus years. Buying and collecting for herself and her shop was her passion. She enjoyed traveling and meeting people along the way and kept in touch with many of her friends and family through massive letter writing, mail, and playing cards.

Sally is survived by her husband Garth (79), brother Keith (75), her six children, and grandchildren: David, Jared (Lindsi Every), and Travis (TJ) Engle, Taylor (Kathryn France), Whitney, and Blair Bestor and, most recently, her great granddaughter Kymber Luna Bestor.

Sally donated her body to science.

A Christmas Celebration of Life Ceremony is being planned for her at the Heritage Event Center in Cresco, Iowa, December 22.
