Dear sister of Stephen Swatridge (Mary Flatt), Sheila Teeple (Bill), Susan Haines (Wyndy), and Stuart Swatridge.
At the age of 18, Sandra attended Guelph General Hospital where she answered her call to the nursing profession. During Sandra’s 44 year career as an RN she held positions in labour and delivery, advanced neonatal care, and geriatric care. She was dedicated, caring, compassionate and took pride in being an RN. Sandra’s passion for archeology and ancient civilizations drove her to pursue an education at the University of Ottawa where she obtained her BA in Archeology. In addition, her love for history led her to become a world traveller and to explore places like China, the Egyptian Pyramids, the Parthenon, many ruins of Ancient Rome and much more. Sandra will be remembered for her kind heart, determined character, pride in her grandchildren, and love of life.
