Obituary of Sara Ann Sanders
It is with tremendous sadness that the family announces the sudden, yet peaceful passing of Sara at her home on Tuesday, March 29, 2022 at the age of 45. Beloved daughter to Barbara and Charles Sanders and their spouses Robert Soccini and Denise Sanders. Cherished older sister to Beth Sanders and most devoted “Auntie” to Grayson, Carter and Oliver. Lovingly remembered by many aunts, uncles and cousins; Sara will also be deeply missed by her chosen family, especially Krista, Richard, Lonnie, Brett, Katrina, Deanna, Nicole, Shawn, Mark and Andy. Sara is now reunited with her grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins who have passed away, and her faithful, furry friend Spanky a.k.a Doodles.
Sara worked as a Purchaser with Panasonic Integrated Services in St. Catharines, and truly loved her job and the people she worked with. She earned her Culinary degree at Canadore College and a Business Administration degree from Southern New Hampshire University. She was an excellent cook, and was always willing to help guide those who encountered "kitchen dilemmas.” Among her hobbies and favourite things were; lounging in the water at the lake, a night watching a favourtie show or movie, or a game night playing Skip-bo or Rummikub. Sara loved music and could challenge even the experts at musical Jeopardy. Sara also loved celebrating Christmas; it was always her "thing" and visiting her over the holidays always meant a home decorated to perfection and delicious dishes she’d prepared for her family and friends.
Sara will be remembered for always having a genuine smile, infectious laugh, her quick wit, and her unwavering willingness to help others with her many talents. Sara had a love for all things sun-related, which was fitting because, like the sun, she was a source of brightness and warmth in everyone's life.
Cremation has taken place and arrangements are entrusted to Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905-354-2133). A Celebration of Sara's life will be held at the Brookside Banquet Venue, 99 Brookside St, London, ON, on Saturday, May 28 from 2:00-5:00 p.m. Words of remembrance will be shared at 2:30 p.m. All are welcome. All guests attending are asked to please use the entrance marked for the banquet hall.
If desired, Sara and her family would be thrilled with memorial donations made to the Ontario SPCA.
