Sandra "Sandy" LaFountaine

June 28, 1959 — July 20, 2022

Wahpeton, North Dakota

Sandra "Sandy" LaFountaine, age 63, of Wahpeton, ND, passed away on Wednesday, July 20, 2022, at her residence, surrounded by her loving family. Visitation will be held from 11 AM to 12 PM, Friday, July 29, 2022, at Vertin-Munson Funeral Home, Wahpeton, followed by her memorial service at 12 PM. Colette Barton will be officiating the service. Arrangements have been entrusted to Vertin-Munson Funeral Home.

Sandy was born in Belcourt, ND, on June 28, 1959, to Ernest and Louaine (LaVallie) LaFountaine. She grew up there for a short time before her family made the move to St. Paul, MN. After her formal education, she moved to South Dakota where she worked at a treatment center that focused on helping children. She enjoyed the opportunity to impact the lives of adolescents and was incredibly gifted in working with the youth there. When she wasn’t working, she loved participating in local softball clubs.

Throughout the years, Sandy worked for Service Master, Magic Casino, Essentia in Fargo, and Comdel. While working in Browns Valley, she met Dianne Schwagel, while working together. They hit it off immediately and were married on May 7, 2016. They moved to Wahpeton in 1999 and have resided there since.

Sandy had a heart for others and cherished her family immensely. She was witty and loved making others laugh. When she wasn’t working, she could typically be found at Lake Traverse fishing with her spouse. Otherwise, trips to the casino or playing cards with her family and friends were always a highlight of her day.

She will be greatly missed by her loving wife, Dianne LaFountaine; children, Jamie (Marcus) Donnell and Jason (Alaina) Donnell; granddaughters, LaTaya and Stacey (Dylan); great-grandchildren, Aiden, Leighton, Jacksten, and Layla; mother, Louaine LaFountaine; and brothers, Irvin, Darrell, and Larry.

Sandy was preceded in death by her father, Ernest LaFountaine, and granddaughter, Khloe.
