In Memory of Sandra Odren
Sandra Julaine Odren, a 69 year resident of Clark County, passed away on Friday, May 25, 2012 at the age of 75.
Sandra Schierman was born on July 12, 1936 in Shelton, Washington and moved with her family to Vancouver in 1942. Sandra graduated from Vancouver High School in 1954 and received a Major in Sociology and a Minor in Music in 1959 from Pacific Lutheran University. That same year she began her long and devoted career with the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS); a career as an advocate for the children and families of not only her region, but the entire State of Washington. A longtime member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Vancouver, she continued to maintain a strong Lutheran faith as recent member of Messiah Lutheran Church in Hazel Dell.
From 1966 through 1968, Sandra attended the University of British Columbia with her husband Roy, where they both received Masters Degrees in Social Work. She quickly returned to work, and eventually became the Area Manager for the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) where she remained until her retirement in 1996, 37 years later. During this time, Sandra worked to solidify funding and legislation for children, family and mental health services, was charter member and held positions on Boards of Directors for several local social non-profit organizations, all while maintaining a tireless drive to work even more for the children and families of Southwest Washington.
As Sandra continued to give of herself for social service advancement, health problems caused her to cut back her community involvement. Through many difficult surgeries, medical treatments and finally kidney dialysis, she persevered. At the time of her passing, she sat on the Boards of Directors for Innovative Services Northwest (ISNW), Educational Opportunities for Children and Families (EOCF) and the Human Services Council of Clark County. This dedication to social service causes has been memorialized through the many awards and honors she has received.
The Human Services Council is grateful for Sandra's years of service to our organizaiton, and will remember her fondly.
