She lived life with a martini in one hand and a gift for someone in the other. Generous and smart, Sandy had an insatiable knowledge of people and knew random bits about everyone. As teachers for many years with the TDSB, Sandy and her late husband Bill touched the lives of so many people. She was the first person to offer help to whoever needed it; be it a place to stay, money for school, a pet to care for or a car to borrow. Her talents also extended to baking amazing treats, sewing and lots of fun crafts. She always had ideas.
Her happy place was Gull Lake, cocktail hour, lunch with the ladies, shopping or simply hanging out on the deck and reading with the chipmunks. She was always up for an adventure, and traveled with many friends and family. Her ferocious appetite for life (not necessarily food) made her a force to be reckoned with, she fought hard but didn’t let her COPD slow her down. We lost her suddenly on January 9, 2019 but gracefully at 77 years old. She will be greatly missed by Michelle & Neal, Jonathan & Siobhan, her grandchildren Madeline & Jackson and by countless others. Slainte. Visitation will take place on Friday, January 18th from 2 – 4 & 6 – 9 p.m. at Turner & Porter Butler Chapel, 4933 Dundas St. W. (near Burnhamthope Rd). Help us celebrate her life with a Service being held at St. Olave’s Anglican Church, 360 Windermere Ave. on Saturday, January 19th at 2:00 p.m. with reception to follow. Memorial donations may be made in her honour to Sleeping Children Around the World.
