Sandy was never at a loss for what to do or where to go and was always full of fun & adventure.

Sandy’s friendship means so much to me and I will hold onto it forever.

My Sincere Condolences to the Family


Sandy was always full of fun on our campouts. She had an infectious laugh and loved to play games, cards, sit around the campfire and get the rest of us enthused In her themes and “costumes”. She will be missed.

It has been several years since Sandra visited me here in Antigonish. Such a wonderful surprise, with her smile and “Guess who?” We go back to our teenage years (born weeks apart) before she married my brother, Don. My mother loved her like a daughter and valued their relationship long after they divorced. I always admired her for taking life head on and never letting defeat get her down. She was a wonderful person and the world has lost a shining star. My thoughts are with her family during this sad time.

My condolences to family and friends. I met Sandy last year through Escapees RV club. We travelled a little bit around Nevada and California together for a couple of weeks. My first time traveling solo, she was a great support. A truly adventurous, fun loving lady. She will be missed.

So sorry to hear that Sandy has passed on. She will always remain in my heart. It was wonderful working along side of her. When I was down she was always able to lift up my spirits.she was a kind and caring teacher. I am honoured to say that I was able to teach by her side. Heaven has a new angel.

Sandy and I bowled together on a team in St Albert along with her friend Elaine a number of years ago. I lost touch with her over the years, but do remember us laughing a lot. Her smile and laughter were infectious. Rest in Peace Sandy. ….

So sorry to hear that Sandy has passed away. I remember her from St. Joseph High School, a wonderful, caring and fun loving person. It was a privilege to know her and I will remember her with many fond memories.


So sorry for your loss, Sandy was an amazing lady, funny, and full of life. I had the pleasure of seeing her last summer and she was as full of energy as the first time I met her, she made me giggle a lot. Hugs to you all.
