Sandra was born in Stockholm, SK to parents of Ukrainian descent, Joe and Anna (nee Holowka) Kocan. She was an only child and at times found it very lonely as she had no one to talk to or play with. Sandra's father was a barber in Dubuc, SK. Sandra worked at the Royal Bank in Esterhazy then Yorkton. She also worked for the City of Yorkton during elections. Her major employment period was at Croll's Department Store in Yorkton where she worked for 26 years. Sandra enjoyed reading until her eyesight became poor and her age made it unbearable. Her favourites were books by Pierre Burton, senior and local newspapers plus the Readers Digest. She loved old time music and dancing. Sandra was predeceased by her husband, Albert, whom she married in 1976 after meeting him at a dance in Yorkton. Sandra is survived by his children; Albert Jr. (Dawn), Rodney (Debbie), Donald (Donna), Karen (Brian), Susan (Dale), Laura (Ian), 17 grandchildren and 32 great-grandchildren. Sandra and Albert travelled and always brought back mementos from their trips including dolls, coins and stamps. Their travels included trips to Texas, Mexico, Alaska and Florida where they visited the Kennedy Space Centre. She also travelled to Winnipeg to see Prince Charles and Princess Dianna during their tour of Canada. Some of Sandra's favourite activities included: volunteering, shopping for clothes, gardening, feeding the chickadees and sparrows and especially eating Saskatoon berries with cream when in season.
