1940 - 2021

With sadness we announce the sudden passing of Sandra Joy Thusberg on April 5, 2021. Sandy rejoins her husband Victor who predeceased her only one year earlier.
She leaves to carry on, son David, partner Diane, granddaughter Sydney, and last but not least her beloved cat Joey.
Mom was born Sandra Hume in Winnipeg in 1940, and apart from a few years in Florida in the 1970s, lived her entire life in Winnipeg. Early years were spent with sister Rose, and cousins Nancy and Maureen. She worked in the family drugstore and lunch bar on Corydon Avenue, eventually training and becoming a dental assistant. In 1963 she found her partner for life, and together she and Vic enjoyed a robust and energetic life, continually surrounded by numerous friends and family. Their travels around the world were extensive with numerous trips to Finland and almost six decades of summers at the family cottage in Pointe du Bois, MB. Sandy enjoyed daily walks in her lovely neighbourhood of Armstrong Point and was friends with all the neighbours.
In recent years, Sandy and Vic were tirelessly cared for by Natalie, who with matchless dedication helped them upkeep their robust life until their last days. The family is very grateful for Natalie's help and also thank Deedee who assisted and provided a new home for Joey.
A celebration of Sandra and Victor's life well-lived will be held sometime in May or June on a date to be announced.

  • To The Family & Friends of Sandy I just want to take this opportunity to thank you all, for the privilege you gave me to care for Sandy for the past 17+ months. I am deeply sorry for the recent passing of Sandy. She wasn't just a client, but also a good friend as well. I really enjoyed taking care of her. She will be greatly missed. Thank you to her son David who gave me a job doing what I loved doing. You went above & beyond caring for your mom. Thank you for hiring me David, you were a great boss and friend as well.

  • Sandy will be lovingly missed by me and my family. She and I were cousins, the same age and grew up together. We went to Kelvin High School and participated in track and field, baseball, volleyball and sang in the operettas. We played piano duets in the Manitoba music festival competition. We enjoyed Amicitia Club, raising money for missions. She and I were companions all our lives and we and our families had many wonderful experiences together. Rest In Peace Sandy, until we meet again. - Posted by: Nancy Zeilstra (Cousin) on: Apr 11, 2021
