Surrogate mother, grandmother, aunt, sister and a good friend to too many to name; you know who you are. Concerned friend of all.

Sandy is a graduate of Toronto Bible College with a degree in Youth Ministries and a licensed LPN. For many years she was a faithful worker for the Union Mission Ministries/Hope Haven as camp director, house parent and any other position that was required. Her time at Camp Hope Haven with Danny, Nancy, Gay and others were some of her happiest memories. She was also a Sunday School teacher for youth and adult women. She was the driving force in founding the Jarvisburg Christian Academy and was also its first principal. She was a leader in numerous Christian women’s groups and classes.

A faithful servant of God who will be sorely missed by all she touched.

I wish to personally thank all of the care givers and all other staff members at Sentara Barco. Their care for Sandy was far beyond any expectations I could ever have. Their concern for me was so helpful in all of the time Sandy was there. All of the staff should be commended for their personal care of all of their residents and families.
