Sandra went to be with her Lord and Savior on August 10, 2013 at the age of 76.  She was born to Jack and Dorothea Randle on July 14, 1937 in McPherson, Kansas.  She graduated from McPherson High School and attended Brown Mackie Business College in Salina, Kansas.  She married Thomas Olson of Bavaria, Kansas on November 30, 1957.  They had a dairy and wheat farm with Tom’s parents for 10 years, raising their 3 children on the farm until moving to Turlock, CA in May 1968 for Tom to become herdsman for Arlinda Dairy.  In 1974, they began an artificial breeding business which continued for 20 years until the passing of Sandra’s husband in 1993. Sandra met retired Air Force Lt. Col. Herman Musser and they married on October 8, 1999.  They had nearly 14 years enjoying activities with church friends and family.  Playing cards and RV’ing was an especially fun time for them. She is survived by her daughters Keri Davis (JD) and Juli Turnbow (Wayne), son Scot Olson (Cari) and stepson Scott Musser.  Grandsons Grayson and Charles Davis, Brian and Zachary Turnbow, and granddaughters Elli and Taylor Olson. Sandra felt blessed beyond measure by her Savior, Jesus Christ, for giving her such a wonderful family and a multitude of loving friends.
