The Cornerstone Credit Union League is saddened to announce that longtime employee Sandy Arnesen passed away on Nov. 20, 2015.

"Sandy was an employee that always took great pride in serving credit unions," said Cornerstone EVP Karen Hart. "She was a very kind and nice person who served our organization well. I was very saddened to learn of her passing."

Sandy Arnesen joined the Texas Credit Union League in early 1995 as a temporary employee working for our then-new president, Dick Ensweiler. When that job ended, she interviewed for the position of financial analyst in the ALM Resource. Her background in the accounting area of Rohm and Haas made her a perfect fit, and Sandy became a full-time employee on July 13, 1995. She resigned her position in May of 2013. 

"Sandy was an integral part of the ALM team," said Deborah Rightmire, VP asset/liability management at Cornerstone. "Her love of accounting, the variety of responsibilities, the required attention to detail, and the ability to work one on one with credit union employees made her love her job and do her job well. 

"She prided herself on the volume of key ratio reports she could produce with zero errors; however, Sandy's favorite part of her job was working with students of Southwest CUNA Management School. During her almost 18 years with the ALM Resource, Sandy assisted more than 800 students in mastering ALM techniques and completing the financial management area of their three-year project."

Friends report that Sandy was born in San Francisco and, though she lived much of her adult life in Texas, she was definitely a California girl. She prided herself in being a great mom to her son David and a wonderful cook. Nothing made her happier than cooking and entertaining her family.
