Sandra (Sandy) Ann Woodward, born to Jim and Sally Wylie on September 9, 1947, in Palo Alto, California, is a fifth-generation Californian. She comes from a well-known family; her great grandmother started the town of Lindsay, California, and her grandmother's cousin was George S. Patton. She lived and taught in Germany for fifteen years before moving to Ames. While here, she volunteered at Mary Greeley Hospital and the American Red Cross and taught English and reading at Ames Middle School. Sandy is being honored as a heroine by Ralph Woodward for her unwavering support of her husband who battled lymphoma for three years, her service to the community and the children of Ames, and her contribution to international goodwill. Sandy epitomizes all that Carrie Chapman Catt strived for and provides a role model for other women to follow.
