Sandra L. Elliott, 70, a life resident of Brookfield, passed away peacefully at her home on Saturday, July 27, 2013, while her loving husband and children were at her side, following a lengthy illness. She was born in New Berlin on September 22, 1942, the daughter of the late William and Helen Smith Corey. Sandy was a graduate of Brookfield High School. On November 23, 1965, in Providence, Rhode Island, she married Garth (Gary) Elliott. Along with her husband, Sandy had been the owner of Bridgewater Bowling Lanes. She had also worked at the Brookfield General Store and spent many years working at the Gates Dale Dairy Bar in Bridgewater, where she earned the nickname and known along the east coast as "Flo". Sandy had a passion for golfing and bowling because the sports challenged her. She was also a devoted "sports mom", which continued even after her children graduated; she still continued to support Brookfield High School Sports. Sandy was a member of the Brookfield Fire Department Firemen's Auxiliary; the Brookfield Johnson and Rogers American Legion Post 1492, where she was a member for over 40 years; the Waterville Bowling Association; and a member of the Brookfield First Baptist Church. Sandy was also a member of the Lakeland Park Association at her winter home in Florida. Surviving are her loving husband of 47 years, Garth; one daughter and son-in-law, Cara and Walter Goedeker, of Oriskany Falls; two sons and daughters-in-law, Rob and Shelly Elliott, of Hillsborough, NJ, and Eric and Hiroko Elliott, of Panama City Beach, FL; a brother and sister-in-law, William and Sandy Corey, of Warsaw; and four beloved grandchildren, Derek, Sam, Ben and Sophie. She was predeceased by her sister, Donna Dougherty. Funeral services will be held on Sunday, August 4, 2013, at 2:00 PM at the First Baptist Church of Brookfield with the Rev. Mark Thall, Pastor, officiating. Interment will be in Brookfield Cemetery. Family and friends are invited to call on Saturday at the Paul Funeral Home of Brookfield from 2-4 and 6-8 PM at the funeral home located on Church Street.
