Sandra SILLCOX - wife, mother, grandmother, sister, matriarch, equestrian, volunteer extraordinaire, friend and larger than life personality - passed away peacefully in her sleep March 26 at 74 years of age.

Sandra was greatly loved by her husband Robert, daughter Dana (Jim), daughter Paige (Joe), son Scott (Kim), and grandchildren - Nick, Devon, Mitchell, Thomas, Kendall, Carly and Kai. Also survived by her brother Clay POWELL, Québec. To say that Sandra was strong willed, independent and one-of-a-kind would be an understatement. She was a remarkable person who touched and influenced far more people than we can know. So many things can and will be said about the remarkable Sandra, but above all it was never dull and we thank her for that. Her cup was forever half full. A celebration of Sandra's life will be held 11: 00 a.m. Wednesday April 2 at All Saints Anglican Church in King City with refreshments afterwards. Cremation has taken place.

Born in Medicine Hat, Alberta in 1913 and after early childhood in Cranbrook British Columbia, Ted was raised in Toronto. He learned and taught sailing at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club.
