UPDATED: Account set up to help family of area resident

Tuesday, March 9, 2010

An account has been set up at Riddell National Bank to help pay medical costs for Brazil resident Sandy Dean (left), who passed away Tuesday, following a massive stroke. Arrangements are pending at Moore Funeral Home, Brazil. Courtesy Photo.
A bank account has been set up to accept donations to help the family of a single mother pay medical and funeral expenses.

A friend of Sandy Dean's notified The Brazil Times about the account at Riddell National Bank on Monday. Dean, 44, Brazil, apparently suffered a massive stroke Feb. 28 and died Tuesday.

Working in the medical profession, Dean also volunteered a lot of her time at the Exotic Feline Rescue Center, Center Point. Funeral arrangements are pending at Moore Funeral Home, Brazil.

According to Riddell National Bank (RNB) Senior Customer Service Specialist Robin Swalls, people can go to any RNB branch in the Wabash Valley and request to make a donation to the account set up for Sandy Dean.

For those wishing to donate -- who live outside of the area, Swalls said they could stop by or send a check to her attention at the bank in care of the Sandy Dean fund.

How to donate

To make donations to help the family of Brazil resident Sandy Dean cover medical and funeral costs, stop by any local Riddell National Bank or send a check (made out to Sandy Dean) to:

Attn: Robin Swalls

C/O Riddell National Bank

1 East National Avenue

Brazil, Ind., 47834

I knew Sandy and wouldn't wish this on any family. It's shocking how many in their 20s-30s-40s are having strokes. Peace be with her family and I will gladly donate towards helping with medical/funeral expenses. I'm so sorry for your loss.
