COBBAN, Dr. Sandra Joy
(nee Kindzierski)
On Friday, January 11, 2013, Dr. Sandra Joy Cobban (nee Kindzierski) of St. Albert succumbed to the cancer she had been fighting for the greater part of a decade.
Dr. Cobban was ever an optimist and a dedicated, focused individual. She graduated with her PhD in Nursing, becoming the first non-nurse in Canada to achieve that honour. She was well known for her many years involvement in the field of Dental Hygiene, as an associate professor at the University of Alberta School of Dentistry and editor of professional journals. As a 'big fish' in the profession, she presented her work in the United States, Australia, Wales, Denmark, The Netherlands, and Korea.
She will be forever missed by her sons, Conor and Nigel; her parents, Bert and Flo Kindzierski; her brothers and sisters, numerous nieces and nephews, and many others who had the privilege of knowing her.
Dr. Sandy Cobban was predeceased by her nephews, Craig and Brandon Kindzierski.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 10:00 a.m. Saturday, January 19, 2013 at St. Albert Funeral Home, 9 Muir Drive, St. Albert.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Cross Cancer Institute.
