Sandra Rainey passed away on Christmas Eve in the loving presence of her husband, 5 daughters and a son-in-law at The Elliott Community in Guelph after a long battle with dementia.

A wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother, Sandra loved her family above all else.

She will also be missed by her sisters Linda (Tom Leadston) and Nicola (Joseph Marques) and fondly remembered by her nephews and nieces.
The family extends their heartfelt gratitude to staff at The Elliott Community, where Sandra lived for her last 4 years. A funeral service will be held at Brombal Funeral Home, 1 Delhi St., Guelph on Saturday, December 30 at 11am. During the hour before the service, there will be visitation with Sandra's family.
