Sandra Lynelle Mahan Hamlin passed away peacefully among close friends on July 9, 2018.

Sandra was born July 11, 1972 in Soldotna, Alaska to Daniel and Sammie Lynelle Mahan. She graduated from Soldotna High School in 1990 after working summers as a commercial fisherwoman. To her friends, Sandra was known as a strong idealist, always in search of the good in every situation. She was a dental assistant, a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) and an entrepreneur before starting her family. Sandra and her family moved from Alaska to Roberts Creek, British Columbia in 2010.

Sandra was a true Alaskan girl and embraced the beauty and community of Roberts Creek with grace and passion. She was known in the yoga community as a humbled and dedicated seeker; deepening her spiritual awakening by courageously responding to what life brought to her. Some knew her by the name White Sage Woman; a woman who walked through fire. Sandra was always supportive to those around her during their times of need, and her sincere generosity and caring friendship will be deeply missed.

Sandra was preceded in death by her father, Daniel Mahan.

She is survived by her mother Sammie Lynelle Mahan; her daughter, Kiana Hamlin; son, Kayden Hamlin; and their father Jared Clayton Hamlin; her brother Patrick Mahan; and the many members of the entire Mahan and Hamlin families.

A Celebration of Life will be held on July 21, 2018 in Roberts Creek, B.C. Canada at 5:55 p.m. at the Mandala. Another celebration will be held in Soldotna, Alaska in fall 2018. In lieu of flowers, two "GoFundMe" accounts are set up to support her children's education, one in Alaska and one in Canada:
