Our mother grew up with the value of having fun and openly expressed that in all of her relationships. She had an angelic love for all of us and especially her grandchildren. She never missed an opportunity to tell us "I love you to pieces!"
Throughout her life she maintained a kind and loving demeanor that gained the trust and hearts of many, who even now, are being changed by her witness of constant nurturing, love and faith. She loved to pray, listen to music, dance, travel, play cards and games.
She traveled the world and made spiritual connections with all she came in contact with. It brought her joy to meet people and teach them about the life lessons she had learned.
Even though she is gone, she left the legacy of love and light. We will miss her strength, support and guidance but will continue to feel her presence in our lives.
She is survived by her children: Jason (Allyson) Hale, Natalie (Keith) Lawes, Romney (Garry) Stromness, her grandchildren: Bridger, Braxton, Kennedy, Hayden, Addie, Avery, Harrison, Hudson, her brothers and sisters: LaRene (Kim) Tovey, Darryl (Tracy) Sanford, Jolane (George) Scheib, Kerry (Evelyn) Sanford and Ryan (Karen) Sanford. Preceded in death by her parents, Wayne and Nadine Sanford.
