January 22nd

Cassandra Ann Vu, age 41, of North Webster, slipped away surrounded by family on Thursday, January 18, 2024 at 2:05pm at Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne, after a brief illness. 

Sandra was born on September 23, 1982 to Tammy and Micheal Yoder in Goshen, Indiana.  She graduated from Fairfield Jr/Sr High in 2001. On June 26, 2004 she married David Vu. In 2016 she obtained her Associates degree of Science in Dental Hygiene from Ivy Tech in South Bend. She enjoyed everything teeth and worked at several dental offices in the area, most recently working at Trinity Dental of Kendallville and Crossroads Dental of Ligonier.

Survivors include her husband of 19 years, David, son and daughter, Tai and Mylah, still at home, mother, Tammy (Tim) Wright of Biloxi, MS, father , Micheal Yoder (Lori)  of Warsaw, siblings, Josh (Brandy) Rollins of Syracuse, Autumn Smith of Syracuse, Erika (Mike) Pouch of Elwood, Jessica (Ryan) Coquillard of North Webster,  TJ Wright of Millersburg, grandmother, Jean Phillips. several Aunts, Uncles, Neices, Nephews as well as her beloved Great Dane Diesel and her sassy horse Phora. 

Sandra was proceeded in death by her Grandfather Richard Phillips, her Mamaw Julie Yoder, Papaw, Jerry Yoder, Uncle Steven Yoder, her sweet Lab Hunter and beloved horses Minnie and Ginger. 

From when Sandra was a little girl, she had an unmatched passion for animals.  Many of us have memories of dropping by the Vu’s house in Syracuse to find a pig walking around the living room, or once they moved to the country in North Webster, you never knew what furry babies would greet you at the door. David often got to fight Diesel for Mamas snuggles.  Her heart grew with every furry baby they welcomed into their small farm. She was lucky to have found her best friend whose love and dedication for her allowed him to embrace all the animals as they multiplied on their homestead. There wasn’t a single day her boots weren’t covered in mud.

Before becoming a mother, she and David were avid golfers frequenting Maxwelton Golf Course and also had a passion for deer hunting. She always sat in the good spots on the property so she could get the deer before David every season! She fiercely loved her family, and was so proud of Tai and Mylah. She loved helping the kids with all the animals. Sandra was a leader in Saddle and Rabbit clubs in Elkhart County 4-H Fair and loved watching all the them learn and grow.

She had an unparalleled fire inside her to protect those close to her. You knew with Sandra on your side, no one would mess with you, or she would tell them all about it! Sandra had a thirst for knowledge and didn’t know a stranger. If there was a competitive conversation or eye rolling Olympics, she would have gotten the gold! She will fondly be remembered for her sassy mouth, big heart, and her unique contagious laugh. 

Sandra leaves behind numerous loved ones with countless memories filled with love, laughter and all things farm life. As we mourn the loss of her physical body, let us try to keep her warm spirit alive and comfort each other by sharing the many memories of her we hold dear in our hearts. 

Visitation will be held on Friday, January 26, 2024 from 2-4 pm and 6-8pm at Eastlund Funeral Home.

Services will be held on Saturday, January 27, 2024 at 11am at North Webster Church of God.

 The family would like to extend their sincere thanks for all of the love and support shown to them during this difficult time.  In Lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be directed to North Webster Church of God.
