de SAINT-ANDRE, Lucille - August 20, 1921 - December 18, 2013 Survived by her husband Robert Sandbo and her brother Robert Blum, and mourned as well by step- son and daughter, John and Maud Sandbo, step-granddaughter Lisa and dear friends, new and old. Lucille de Saint-Andre was always much loved by everyone she met and highly valued for her engaging spirit. Her serenity was noted: someone said, "She was like a Queen." A journalist for 60 years, Lucille began as a "cub" reporter at the Montreal Star and it was there that she learned her craft. After some years in New York she returned to Canada in 1984 and soon began to report on the Toronto Film Festival. For many years she has attended and reported on the Toronto festival. During the 1960s while writing a series of stories on "fringe religions" Lucille became a Buddhist. For many years Lucille spent several weeks each winter in San Miguel de Allende. Two places Lucille loved best of all: Montreal and San Miguel. Her semi- biographical novel, "Bye-bye, Baden-Baden" was published in Toronto in 1998. www.byebyebadenbaden.com
