Sandra Elizabeth Irving

It is with great sadness that Doug has to announce the sudden but peacefully passing of Sandi at their desert home on Saturday, Dec 10, 2011.

Dearly beloved wife of Doug for 41 years, cherished mother of David and Andrew, devoted (consummate) grandmother of Lexi, Ciara and Declan, sister of David and daughter of Elsie. She will be sadly missed because she was a truly giving soul whose light was taken too early.

Sandi was known to so many people through her avid daily walks with Trubby and she had a good word for everyone. She loved her desert home sitting under the lemon tree and her favorite game of “count the clouds”. Our lives have been enriched by having Sandi in our life but our world will be forever changed without her. We all love you so much.

There was a private family service held in the desert on December 16, 2011. A celebration of her life will be held in Vancouver, Courtenay and La Quinta at a later date. At her request, no flowers but please donate to your local animal shelter.
