May 9, 1949 – March 5, 2019
It is with profound sadness that we announce that, after a valiant struggle with cancer, our courageous wife, mother, sister and grandmother, Sandra Lynn Nurse, Sandy, passed away, with her family by her side, on March 5, 2019, in Courtenay, BC.
Her loss is mourned by her husband, of over 50 years, Tom, their children Jason (Stacey), Kingston ON, and Simon, Victoria, grandchildren Caitlyn, Brady and Hayley. Also mourning her loss are her sisters, Donna Bell, Courtenay, and Barbara (Neil) McLean, Bon Accord, AB, and sister-in-law Simone Comeau-Park, Trail, BC., and a special daughter, Kimberly Seguin, Ottawa, ON. Sandy was predeceased by her parents and her brother Randy.
Sandy was born in Calgary, AB, on May 9, 1949 to F/L Donal & Marie (Lewis) Park. She moved to several locations across Canada with her parents and siblings before meeting and marrying her husband Tom, in Greenwood, NS. They moved several times, with their family, during their lives together to Edmonton, AB., St. Hubert, QC., Kelowna, BC., Winnipeg, MB., Trenton, ON., and, to eventual retirement, in the Comox Valley.
Sandy exuded happiness and positivity and she was willing to lend a hand to those in need.
No service or burial by request. The family extends its gratitude to Dr Michael Neufeld and the staff at Comox Medical Clinic, the Victoria Cancer Clinic, the pediatrics floor and Wellness Centre, at North Island Hospital, Comox Valley, and Dr Jonathan Reggler, for their care and support during Sandy’s journey.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Vancouver Island Lodge – Canadian Cancer Society, 2202 Richmond Rd., Victoria, BC. V8R 4R5. Phone: 250-592-2662.
