SANDRA YVONNE SCHALLA
Sandra passed away peacefully on January 24, 2021.
Sandra was predeceased by her grandparents, Iris and George Johnson and Bertha and Gestur Isfeld, and Paul Dion; her biological father Steven Isfeld, and her nephew Daniel Dion-Hart.
She leaves to mourn her passing, husband Kevin; sons, Jeffery, Shawn (Marika) and Tyler; grandsons, Declan and Dawson; parents, Susan and Allen; sister Debra (Danny); brother-in-law Brian (Rita); nieces, Amari and Nessa; nephews, Christopher, Rick and Jason (April); grandmother Mary Dion, and many more family and friends.
Sandra was born on July 20, 1970 in Winnipeg, MB. Sandra graduated from Sisler High School in 1988 and went on to take college courses before taking a job with an insurance company. Once her sons were born she left her job to become a stay at home mom to take care of her boys. As the boys grew and started school, she began to volunteer at their schools. Through volunteering she discovered her passion and became an educational assistant. She loved her job with kids. Outside of work she devoted her time to her family; nurturing and taking care of everyone. Her family came first. As she became a grandmother she loved spending time with her grandsons. She would spend her summers taking her grandson Declan to their summer trailer and to many parks around Winnipeg. Declan was her special little boy. Sandra loved to travel around Canada to visit relatives and vacationing in the USA, Mexico and to the trailer on the weekends to relax.
Sandra was a devoted Christian. She attended church regularly at Immanuel Lutheran Church. Sandra always ensured her children attended church worship, Sunday school and lived by core Christian values. She knows we will be together again one day.
We love you Mom.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
My condolences to her family. I had the pleasure of meeting Sandra at Luxton School. I admired how soft spoken and kind she was to all the children. She was respected by everyone. She will be missed. - Posted by: Bev Stebner (Colleague) on: Feb 07, 2021
I would like to offer my condolences to the family. I grew up with Kevin (and Brian). We were next door neighbors. I only met Sandra once. My siblings and I went to Kevin and Sandra’s house, sometime during the 90’s, Christmas caroling. I am very sorry for your loss. - Posted by: Melody Golub (Nee: Lischka) (Childhood Friend) on: Feb 06, 2021
Sorry to hear of Sandra's passing. I worked with Sandra at the insurance company. Sandra was willing to help in any way. I saw Sandra at YMCA a few years ago with her husband, she mentioned her sons and how she was an assistant at the school. RIP Sandra. - Posted by: Jeanette Gibson (Friend & co worker) on: Feb 02, 2021
