Obituary of Sandra Rosellen Lewis
Sandra Rosellen Lewis (Carver)
It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness that we, the family, announce the passing of our sweet wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt, Sandra Lewis, on March 9th, 2023.
Born in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, on March 28, 1943, Sandra was the daughter of the late John Carver and Janet Carver (Higgins). She was the second oldest of four children. Sandra is survived by her loving husband of 55 years, Richard Lewis; son, Jonathan Lewis; granddaughter, Myla Lewis; sister, Sheila Lewis (Carver); brother Douglas (Donna) Carver; brother-in-law, Gilbert Lewis (Bernadine) and daughter-in-law, Briar Swan. Sandra was predeceased by her infant daughter, Catherine Nicole; sister, Sharon Murphy (Carver); brothers-in-law, George Lewis, Douglas Lewis (Florence), Leonard Lewis (Shirley), Merrill Lewis (Jenny) and sisters-in-law, Mary Lewis (Ashburn), Jetta Rudderham (Malcolm), and Isabelle Lewis. Sandra was a wonderful and loving aunt to her many nieces and nephews.
Sandra loved harness racing. Her favourite horse was her Derby’s Lad. Sandra and Richard enjoyed travelling to PEI each year to take in the many events of Old Home Week. She loved playing bingo and cards. Her joyful laugh, when the luck of winning came her way, will be greatly missed.
In her younger years, Sandra worked at Saint Joseph’s Hospital, Saint Rita’s Hospital, and at her Uncle Harry’s restaurant, The Eatmore.
We would like to thank the amazing nurses and staff of the fourth floor north at the Glace Bay General Hospital for their kindness and the compassionate care given to Sandra.
Cremation has taken place under the care and direction of T.J. Tracey Cremation and Burial Specialists, 6 Churchill Dr., Sydney, N.S. 902-539-7175.
To honour Sandra’s wishes, an informal celebration of her life will take place at the Edwardsville W.I.N.S hall on Saturday, March 18th from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Words of comfort may be made to the family by visiting www.tjtracey.com.
