9 Tributes for “Sandra Goudreau

    Loved my sister Sandi dearly, she was a philanthropist, and extremely charitable person.
    Being my older sister, 16 years senior, she was nurturing, kind, and a spiritual guide just like a
    matriarchal elephant. Sandi loved animals like her many dogs P, her visiting backyard deer,
    and the colorful birdies that visited her backyard for the banquet. May her journey keep her
    in loving watch over her huge family. Her legacy is passed on in all of us, especially the
    strong women she helped grow up and teach about life.

    I was very sadden by the news of Sandy’s passing away. My deepest condolences and sincere prayers for the grieving family. Sandy was a very loyal sitter of Inka my chocolate lab. Both Sandy and Inka had very special bond during my pastorate at St. Joseph in Perkins. Your mother was a very generous and great lady. I will celebrate special Mass in her memory very soon. Again my prayers for the whole family, she is also a great loss to the community and our beloved St. Joseph in Perkins.

    So sorry you guys. You’re mom was one special lady n can see her in you guys. Hugs n prayers from Tim n Sue

    Sending deep sympathy to all the family. I worked with her at Farmers Home years ago. She was a caring teacher while I learned the job. She was a positive person. I enjoyed her smile.

    So shocked to read the news that Sandy had passed away. As I would play the organ at St. Joseph Church, Sandy would be singing with her beautiful harmonizing voice. She will be missed. Sending sympathies to Sandy’s family.
