Sandra slipped away peacefully at home on Wednesday, December 11, 2013 at the age of 62 with her husband and four children at her side, after a courageous battle against cancer.
She was the true partner, as wife and best friend, to Terry since age 16. The loving mother to Tyandra Bulmer (Bill), Tyler Fielder, Terra Fielder and Trisha Foley (Mike) and grandmother to Tyler and Allegra Bulmer, Jakob and Noah Fielder and Brennan Foley.
She was a cherished daughter-in-law to Betty Fielder, and treasured sister to Pat Watt (Bill), Jim Foley (Patti) and Steve Foley (Bev). Sandra will be greatly missed by many nieces and nephews as well as her extended families, church, athletic and community families.
Sandra invested herself in making this world a better place, especially for children. Whether it was a grandchild or a student, she was a teacher in school and life. She took pride in others’ successes and gave compassion in their struggles. She lived clean, believed in healthy eating, an active lifestyle. She valued our beautiful planet. Sandra’s friendship was genuinely given, her heart was an open door. She was spirited, gracious, generous and if you let her, she would touch your soul with her warmth and kindness.
We were fortunate to have her. We can no longer feel her touch but she lives on in the footprints she left behind in our hearts.
Thank you to the many Doctors and Nurses in the Grand River Cancer Center, the CCAC nurses who visited our home and the many who assisted in natural methods healing and comfort. Thank you to those who took care of the family so they could focus on her. Thank you for the ongoing messages that lifted her spirit.
