SANDRA JEAN ADA BALDWIN (published on September 16, 2011)

SANDRA JEAN ADA BALDWIN November 19, 1944 - September 13, 2011 Sandra Jean Ada Baldwin (nee Symon) passed away peacefully and surrounded by loved ones at the Health Sciences Centre after a lengthy battle with cancer. Sandra is survived by her devoted husband Ron, daughter Shauna (Derrick) and son Marc (Lee-Ann). She is also survived by her grandchildren Kayla, Cole, Noah, Molly and Hanaa, her sister Shirley (Bill) Acheson, as well as many nieces and nephews. Sandra was predeceased by her parents Jean and Alex Symon in 1976, and her brother Bob Symon in 1995. Sandra was born in Edmonton, Alberta and attended Bonnie Doone High School and the University of Alberta. She married Ron in 1965 and from there they embarked upon a lifetime of adventure. They found themselves living in many places across Canada as well as in Europe. She took full advantage of her travel opportunities and saw much of the world including trips to Tunisia and Portugal. After settling in Manitoba, she and Ron developed a passion for sailing and spent much time at Gull Harbour Marina on Hecla Island. They moved to Arborg, MB in 2008 and thus began another adventure of living the rural life. A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, September 17, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. at the Arborg Community Hall. The family wishes to extend thanks and gratitude to her long time chemotherapy nurses Julie and Dale; as well as Dr. Patel, and her main caregivers: Dr. Pat Harris, Dr. Jeremy Lipschitz and Dr. Eileen Pang. Thank you also to the staff of the Health Sciences Centre Surgical Intensive Care and Burn Units who made her comfortable in her final moments. Your kindness will not be forgotten. If friends and family so desire, donations in her memory may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 193 Sherbrook St., Winnipeg, MB R3C 2B7, in lieu of flowers.
