Sandean “Sandy” Newhart
With profound and deep sadness, our family wishes to announce the passing of Sandean Newhart on May 14, 2021 at the age of 70. Sandy was the beloved wife of Alex and devoted mother to Trish( Shad House). She is also survived by her sister Roxanne Kendrick. Sandy was predeceased by her parents Ken and Esther Nugis.
Sandy was a kind, compassionate person as was evidenced by her close friends who also mourn her passing. After years of teaching at Sunshine Park Play School in Sherwood Park, she spent her retirement years travelling, golfing and entertaining friends as she loved to cook and try out new recipes. Little pleasures of life made her happy from walking Trish’s Havenese dogs, reading great books and walks with Alex.
Despite dealing with cancer for almost 27 years, Sandy remained optimistic and persistent in facing this disease. She continued to enjoy life’s pleasures until her failing health prevented her from moving forward. Her resilience was extraordinary and her strength and dignity will forever be a guiding light for her family and friends.
Our family would like to thank the medical team at 7 West of the Misericordia Hospital and the kind staff at River Crest Hospice in Fort Saskatchewan in caring for this gentle woman. Cremation has already taken place. In lieu of flowers, donations in tribute to Sandy could be made to any charity that is meaningful to you.
