It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Sandra Jean Loewen on Thursday, October 15, 2020 at Third Crossing Manor in Gladstone, Manitoba at age 80 years.
Sandra was a loving mother to her two sons, Jim (Wendy) of Dauphin, and Scott of Alonsa, as well as to her two granddaughters Wanda (Keith Campbell) and Marie (Justin Campbell), and great grandchildren, Arianne, Carson, Isabelle, Dane and Loden. She is also survived by her two sisters - Bette (Dennis Nykoliation) of Barrie, Ontario, and Linda (Terry Swack) of Winnipeg, and their children.
She was predeceased by her husband Ernie, and her parents Arthur and Lillian Brooks.
Sandra's working career started when she became an MTS telephone operator in Gladstone.
After Sandra and Ernie married, they operated their farm near Gladstone, before moving on to the Alonsa area where they managed the government community pasture. Sandra was an enthusiastic volunteer at the local community hall where she honed her skills in making perogies and cabbage rolls for the parties and fund raisers that were held there.
They moved back to Gladstone in the early 90's and became involved in standardbred horse racing around Manitoba. Over the years, Sandra was an active member of the Rebekah lodge and the Christian Fellowship Church.
Sandra loved to travel and very much looked forward to her next trip.
Sandra lived all of her life in the Gladstone and Alonsa area and will be greatly missed by her many friends.
The family sends special thanks and appreciation to all the staff at Third Crossing Manor for the wonderful and loving care that they provided to Sandra during the past two years.
