Having a family was the most precious, meaningful gift in her life. Being a wife, mother and homemaker made her so happy. Her family was everything to her. Through life’s ups and downs and unexpected tragedies that she endured only made her stronger. Sandra was the matriarch of our family. She found that family was the love, laughter and foundation to her happiness. She leaves many sister in laws, brother in laws and lifelong friends.
Her two daughters are Denise Wilbur and Sharon Flaxman Hughes. She watched her family grow to four grandsons Zachary Wilbur, Matthew Wilbur, Samuel Flaxman and Ross Flaxman. Was blessed with two great grandchildren Eric and Penelope Wilbur. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her. In lieu of flowers please make donations to Jewish family Services.
