Jan 8, 1951 – Apr 11, 2018
Sandy was born in Carberry, MB on January 8, 1951 and passed away peacefully on April 11, 2018 at her home in West Kelowna, BC. Her 4’11 stature did not do her impact justice, she truly is an example that great
things do come in small packages.
Sandy is survived by her son, Robert Blatchford and son in law Rafael Blatchford, her aunt Irene McAvena, her aunt Emily McAvena, her aunt and uncle, Della and Leonard McAvena, her cousin Lorraine Degenhardt and her daughter and son in law Shannon, Bob Skinner and their children Kylie and Dylan, also numerous cousins throughout Canada and the USA.
She was pre-deceased by her ex-husband, Larry Blatchford, her father Howard McAvena, and her aunt Jannie Swinnerton as well as many aunts and uncles and cousins from the McAvena family.
She was a quiet, gentle storm who would overtake you with her loving, caring, generous, stubborn to do it right, tenacious nature that before you could blink an eye she had you enchanted with her humorous and sweet spirit that was impossible to escape, and nor would you want to, because she always gave more than she took. I will never forget you, and I can never replace what I have lost. I love you.
A Celebration of life Service will be held on Saturday April 21st, 2018 at 2:00 pm at Bertram Creek Regional Park, 5680 Lakeshore Road.
