August 17, 1947 - September 15, 2023
It is with great sadness and with very heavy hearts our family announces the peaceful passing into God’s care of Sandra Gayle Sweet, at Lakeridge Health Oshawa on Friday, September 15th, 2023 at the age of 76.
Sandra is survived by her loving sisters Norma Sweet, Beverly and her husband Gordon Gierman, and her sister-in-law Gail Sweet.
Cherished and loving Aunt of Wendy Sweet, Laura-Lynn and her husband Kevin Stephens, Brenda and her husband Kevin Eccles. Very proud, loving and adoring Great Aunt of Riley Stephens, Quinn Hasenhindl, Brody Stephens, Cameron Eccles and Caleb Eccles.
She is predeceased by her loving parents, Thomas Lloyd and Marguerite Sweet, her beloved late brother Lawrence Sweet, her cherished and beloved late nephews Gregory Sweet and Scott Sweet, and many other late family members and friends, including her beloved late fur baby Velvet.
Sandra was born in Oshawa, ON. As an infant, she lived in Courtice, ON, in the home known within the community history as “the house that Jack built” at Townline.
Their family moved to Oshawa in 1949 to the Centre Street house where Sandra spent most of her years growing up. There were a lot of great times shared with Sandra and her many family members and friends over those 55 years in that house.
After the passing of her father, they moved to another home within Oshawa, where she enjoyed it being filled with family celebrations, love, happiness and laughter with her family for many years and where she last resided with her sister, Norma.
She had a successful career working in retail, and was an incredibly loving and kind caregiver. With a strong commitment to her religious faith, following the words of the bible, God, her saviour. She attended Trinity Pentecostal Church in Oshawa for several years.
She especially loved and adored all of her nieces and nephews with her greatest love being for all of her great nephews who she was so incredibly proud of and loved beyond measure.
A special thank you to nurses Tayna and Amy at Lakeridge Health Oshawa, emergency critical care-Unit 4, that cared for Sandra in her final days and our family.
