Sandra had an infectious zest for living and lived each day to its full. She was a beautiful lady inside and out. She worked at the Dunkenhalgh as head waitress for many years and then at the Walton Arms. Sandra then became a nanny in New York and lived a film star lifestyle and for the last 23 years she lived in Las Vegas. She loved beauty and fashion and cut a very striking figure with her blonde hair and red lipstick. She was very avant garde in her style. She loved her holidays and Hawaii was her most adored destination. Sandra will be sorely missed.
