She enjoyed her country music and loved to sit on the deck during the summer evenings and visit with neighbours Kim and Dianne along with Sandra’s mom Anne and Don.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to Sandra for the exceptional care, kindness and love she gave to Dot during the past nine years. Being in New Brunswick gave Dot much joy, living out her ninety-five years to its fullest, surrounded by her loving family.
