Sandra May Salisbury age 59, loving Mother of 3, Grandmother of 6 and adoring Wife to her husband Jerry, passed away in the early hours of April 29, 2022 after a courageous battle with lung cancer.
Sandra was born to Evelyn and Harry Wilson in Nipawin, SK. She was the 7th of ten children, four brothers: Bob, Gerald, David and Kelly and five sisters: Donna, Judy, Shirley, Bonnie and Cathy. There was an advantage to growing up with a big family, as you were always sure to have someone to play with and to confide in.
Sandra met Jerry in 1982, and that moment Jerry knew he had got quite the package deal with Sandra and Shawn! Jerry spent the next few years trying to convince Sandra that she also got one heck of a deal. On April 18, 1987 Sandra married Jerry and together they grew their family having Ryan and Trevor. Raising three boys, Sandra was sure to keep busy. From cheering them on at their activities and different sports, to making sure there was always a hot meal on the table.
Sandra spent her entire life working very hard at numerous places. Always giving her it her all, no matter what it was. Even with her long hours worked, she always made sure that others were taken care of.
Summer holidays were spent camping, and every fall was spent hunting. Her favorite was loading up the vehicle and going for drives. Fridays meant movie night, which was always a good time.
Sandra’s 6 grandchildren were the light of her life. Each of them had a piece of her heart. We were sure to be set straight when we arrived for a visit, “Grandma’s house, Grandma’s rules.” She loved having them over, especially when they were all under her roof at the same time. She enjoyed playing with them, coloring, teaching them how to play cards and cuddles were her favorite.
Sandra loved having company over; her door was always open, there was a pot of coffee on, and if you were hungry, you were sure to be fed. Many nights were spent playing cards, and the laughs were endless.
Sandra was the glue of her family and always someone you could count on for everything. She will be lovingly remembered and missed by all who knew her.
Sandra leaves to cherish her memories: her husband of 35 years Jerry, her sons Shawn, Ryan (Jenna), Trevor (Brittney), and her 6 grandchildren, Emilee, Nixon, Ashton, Reid, Oakland and Jaxon. She is also survived by: her brothers: Bob (Margaret), Gerald, David (Mary), Kelly, her sisters: Donna (Leonard), Judy (Brian), Shirley, Bonnie (Jamie), sister-in-law Helen, and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
Sandra was predeceased by: her parents Evelyn and Harry Wilson, her in-laws George and Tina Salisbury, her sister Cathy, her sister in laws Kathy and Hilda and brother in laws Rick and Rocky.
