Surrounded by the love of her family, Sandra passed away peacefully at St. Joseph’s Villa, on Thursday, January 19, 2023 at the age of 81. She will be missed by her devoted husband Marty of 58 years; her loving children Lori (Dennis Griepentrog) and Jamie (Krista). Cherished Grandma to Jessie, Sherry, Tia, Aricka and Elijah and Great-Grandma to Layla and Ryleigh; dear sister of Angela Taus (John) and Sherry Della Vedova. Dear daughter of the late Archie and Josie Della Vedova. Sandra was born and raised in Sudbury and worked at the Dominion grocery store as a cashier. She and Marty moved to Kirkland Lake for a couple of years, before making Dundas their permanent home. Sandra had a beautiful smile that matched her outgoing personality. She adored babies and toddlers and devotedly cared for her own, as well as those in the neighbourhood. She loved to shop, go on bus trips and attend her weekly Calorie Counter meetings with her fun-loving friends. Sandra enjoyed cooking and baking and will be remembered for her delicious Christmas shortbread cookies. She was also an avid reader and loved to knit. She was a long time member of St. Augustine’s C.W.L and enjoyed participating in their annual bazaars. All will be missed about her, but remembered fondly forever. Her family would like to thank the staff at St. Joseph’s Villa on the Pine Grove unit for their care and compassion toward Sandra and for making her family feel like theirs. Friends will be received by the family on Wednesday afternoon and evening from 2-4 and 7-9 at Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main Street, Dundas. Funeral Mass will be held at ST. AUGUSTINE’S CHURCH, 58 Sydenham Street, Dundas on Thursday at 10:00 a.m. Entombment at Resurrection Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer Society or St. Joseph’s Villa would be appreciated by the family.
