Sandra Kim Seliger Rodas, 69, of Warrenton, died peacefully at home on November 4, 2017, after a battle with cancer.
She was born July 31, 1948, in Ogden, Utah, to the late William and Bonnie (Brian) Seliger.
Mrs. Rodas was a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in the church in many capacities for her entire life. In addition to her church service, she spent much of her life trying to help others. She was actively involved in feeding homeless people for years. She spent her life seeking to live her life as Jesus taught, and was an example of charity and selfless service her entire life.
Despite a life full of heavy burdens and sorrows, Mrs. Rodas always maintained a positive outlook, had an infectious smile and taught everyone to find the joy in every day, despite the trials that may seem to be so difficult in the moment.
She loved to read and often was reading several books at the same time. She instilled her love of books in her children and grandchildren. She loved her grandchildren and being a grandmother was one of her favorite jobs. To each of her grandchildren she would always say, “You are my favorite.”
Sandy was one of seven children and had siblings who said, “Sandy was the best of us.”
She was greatly loved by all who knew her and she will be missed for her example of Christ like service, kindness and forgiving attitude. She was also a woman of strong convictions who voiced her beliefs and held her ground on religious, social and political issues. Her balance of sweetness and feistiness was endearing and admirable.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two sons; Barton James Rodas (Cheri) and Nathan William Rodas, and a brother, William Kurt Seliger.
Survivors include her son, Harry Axel Rodas and wife Kristie; her daughter, Belen K. Rodas (Damien); her siblings, Lisa Jan South (Stanley), Kyle Caruthers (Timothy), Pamela G. Olschewski (Jared), Barton John Seliger (Krissana) and Tracy Gean Armstrong (Robert); nine grandchildren, Shaylee (Ethan), Kira, Levi, Chase, John (Sara), Peter, Ruth, Miriam and Paige, and a great-granddaughter, Everett.
The family will receive friends from 10 to 11 a.m. Wednesday, November 8, when the funeral will begin at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Warrenton. Interment will be at Riverview Cemetery in Tremonton, Utah.
