Growing up in Port Weller, Ont., Sandy loved the water. She met David at Fairview’s youth group. In 1975, she followed him to Tabor College, Hillsboro, Kan., and graduated in 1977 with a secretarial arts diploma. They began their 40-year marriage in St. Catharines, Ont., also living for a time in Port Dalhousie and Jordan, Ont. In 1997, Sandy began as administrative secretary at Grantham MB Church, where she touched many lives. She loved visits to the Caribbean and long Harley rides with David. Sandy deeply loved her children and four grandchildren (with a fifth on the way); caring for family filled her with joy. She died following complications from surgery.
