Mindi was born May 30th, 1973, in Hillsdale, IL to Daniel and Betty Sanchez. She grew up in Bettendorf, Iowa attending Bettendorf schools where she met Aaron Black her high school sweetheart in 1988. They fell in love and brought into the world, their son, Michael. They then continued their story by getting married on August 22, 1998 and having their daughter Faith.
Mindi loved being a mom. She loved it so much, that she was like a mom to so many, including her niece Kourtni, Megan, Drake and all of Michael and Faith’s friends. Mindi’s love for others only grew larger as her family grew. She became a grandma to two beautiful grandchildren, Khloe and Ryder; as well as great aunt to her nieces and nephews Kayden, Madison, and Walker.
Mindi was also a lover of all animals; including all of her fur babies throughout the years. She always loved a good book, a good Hallmark or Lifetime movie, and any time spent with the people she loved and cared for.
Mindi continued to have a big heart and help others even in death by becoming an organ donor. Her gifts will allow her legacy and memory to reach further, as well as touch more people for many years to come.
Those left to honor her memory include her parents Daniel and Betty Sanchez; her husband Aaron Black; her son Michael (Kayla) Black; her daughter Faith Black; her grandchildren Khloe and Ryder Black; her brother Tim Sanchez; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
