1955 - 2019

Peacefully on Saturday, April 13, 2019, our beloved daughter, mother, and dear friend passed away. By her side were her two children holding each hand, as well as Sandy's loving husband and mother.
Sandy was born on August 2, 1955 at the Grace Hospital and is predeceased by her father John Wiens.
She is survived by her mother Barbara (nee Friesen); husband Frank; son Cory; daughter Kelly; and grandpups, Mumford and Harley.
Sandy was a passionate and hard worker within the education system. She served 33 years as an Administrative Assistant before retiring in December of 2018. Her career began at King George School, followed by St. George School and then finally finding home of 18 years at H.S. Paul School. She loved connecting with students and relished being in the center of the action with her family of colleagues.
Sandy loved many genres of music throughout her life. She adored listening to her father play a variety of instruments, particularly the banjo. She could be seen dancing the polka, two-step or rocking out to the most recent country rock tunes. Sandy and Frank would spend countless hours chatting and reminiscing in the kitchen about their day, as well as listening to the oldies and of contemporary artists in the backyard on a nice summer night.
Although she left us unexpectedly, Sandy has forever left an imprint on the hearts and memories of her family, friends, and colleagues. Most of all, Sandy's dedication, sense of humour, and compassion will forever be missed, but never forgotten.
The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses in the ICMS ward of St. Boniface Hospital for their tireless attempts to bring our dear Sandra back to us.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Sandy's memory may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
Funeral service will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 24, 2019 at Glen Lawn Funeral Home, 455 Lagimodiere Blvd., with reception to follow. A private interment will follow at a later date.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • We extend our deepest sympathies to all of Sandy’s family. When I was doing term work at HS Paul Sandy was my rock. When I was plunked in a situation without much knowledge of how things ran in the school it was a Godsend to have Sandy just outside my office door. At slo-pitch Sandy sat at the A’s table just behind the Bares. She always had a smile and a few words to keep us caught up on the goings-on in the school division. We’ll miss her.

  • My deepest condolences on the passing of Sandy. Sandy and I started in the St. Vital School Division around the same time. Over the years we quite often used each other as sounding boards whenever one of needed help with something at work or just needed someone to listen to us grumble. I know she struggled with the decision to retire. She messaged me a few weeks beforehand and was quizzing me on how I liked retirement and what I did with my time etc. I wish she would have had much longer to enjoy it. - Posted by: Shannon Falkenberg (LRSD colleague ) on: Apr 22, 2019

  • I knew Sandy and her family from playing Slo-pitch at Winakwa Community Club. But I will miss her the most when I walk into our little corner IGA store as we always seemed to run into each other there and had a little chat! God Bless you all at this time!

  • I would like to pass on condolences to the family. I worked with Sandy at HS Paul & saw her at hockey games & concerts at Bell MTS. I will miss our little chats when running into each other. I am happy to have known her. - Posted by: Judy McNair (Co-worker) on: Apr 20, 2019
