Sandra Diana Hellinga

June 13, 1946 - November 22, 2023

Funeral Details: In accordance with Sandra's wishes, a private cremation has taken place.  

Passed away suddenly on November 22, 2023 at the age of 77 years.  She was the cherished wife of Claus for 45 years.  Loving mother of Sharon (Randy), Tammy (Colin), and Tracy.  Dear grandma of Gina, David, Bradly, Ashley, Ryan, Coral, and Jessica; and great-grandma of Lauchlan, Emma, Milly, Landon, Nevaeh, Myla, Evelyn, and baby-to-come.  Sister-in-law of Lori (Bryan), and Wes (Allison). Aunt to Chantal (Marcel) and Teila (Larry), great aunt to Brianna, Emily, Carter and Caleb.  Sandra will also be missed by the extended Hellinga family.

Sandra found joy in the simple pleasures of life.  Her passion for Bingo brought a smile to her face, and her love for travel allowed her to explore the beauty of the world.  She relished the peaceful moments spent fishing on the boat.  Sandra had a fondness for old detective shows and western movies.

Among her many loves, she shared a special bond with her loyal companion, Bailey.  Sandra's little dog will undoubtedly miss her warmth and presence.

    I am so very sorry Claus, Tami and family for this terrible and out of nowhere loss! Please RIP Sandy! You totally took me off guard and now who will teach me how the bingo program works at the Newmarket bingo! I will always remember you, rest easy my friend, I hope there is bingo up there for you and of course, country music too.
