Sandra valiantly battled her cancer with courage and strength but was overcome on Jan. 2, 2023, while in the comforts of her home and surrounded by her loving family and close friends. She was blessed with 60 years of a wonderful life.
Sandra Lea Rogers was born on July 3, 1962, in High River, Alta., to proud parents Benjamin and Nadine Rogers. Along with her seven siblings, she was raised with a great appreciation for family, community and the little pleasures that most take for granted in this world.
She had many talents and interests but Sandra really excelled in her creativity; she crafted amazing art pieces and jewelry, displaying them at various flea markets and fairs. Always up for a good contest, she also enjoyed fishing for giant sturgeon in our northern lakes, but her greatest joys were those cherished moments spent with family and friends. She is now gone from our eyes but she will remain forever in the hearts and minds of those who loved her dearly.
Those left to mourn her passing and to celebrate her life include her devoted husband, Glen Radford; her beloved children and stepchildren: Steven (Mellisa) of Viking, Vernon Earp of Medicine Hat, Tyler Earp of Hillcrest, Kyle Radford of Medicine Hat, Stacy Earp of Glasgow, N.S., and Bobbie Radford of Viking; her precious grandchildren: MacKinna, Kaylee, Dayveen, Tearin, Shelbie, Rosa, Gregory, Sadi, Ragnar, Sawyer and Masion; her siblings: Melvin (Shannon) of High River, Doug of Patricia, Alta., Kenny, Glen and Fay (Jim) of Longview, Marilyn of Radium, B.C., and Ronda (Gerald) Clark of Medicine Hat; as well as her many extended family members and friends.
She was predeceased by her parents, Benjamin and Nadine Rogers.
No funeral services will be held. A gathering of family and friends will occur in the spring. Donations in memory of the late Sandra Redford may be directed to the Canadian Cancer Society (www.cancer.ca) and condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
