It is with tremendous sadness that the family of Sandra Coombs (nee Fizzard) formerly of Labrador City, NL announce her peaceful passing. On Wednesday, May 6, 2020 after a courageous journey with Cancer at the age of 63 in St. John’s, NL surrounded with love from her family near and far.

Predeceased by her father Rev. Edward George Fizzard, brothers Eric and Michael, mother and father in-law, Michael and Marion, brother in-law Harold.
Sandra will always be remembered for her sense of humour, carefree spirit, kindness and compassion for others and above all else the everlasting love she had for her children and grandchildren.
She lit up the room with her infectious laugh and vibrant personality, a firecracker until the end. She was fiercely proud of her Newfoundland heritage and collected many books, stories, songs, and recipes. Anyone that met her immediately saw her smile and felt her warm personality as she was known to strike a conversation with anyone and easily made friends. Her love of music was evident as she knew how to rock out to AC/DC and dance the Newfoundland step dance. Our grateful hearts will cherish our many memories of her as she made our world a brighter, better place.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Dr. Armstrong, Dr. McIssac, Dr. Larson and Dr. Doulton at Dr. H Bliss Murphy Cancer Centre and Emily Hicks at palliative care unit for their exceptional care and support she received during treatments.
A special thank you to Bev, Pauline, Anne, Andrea, Sheilah and Maureen for years of love, support, and friendship. She was blessed to have you all in her life. Cremation has taken place and a celebration of her life will be announced at a future date.
“ I don’t need fortune and I don’t need fame
Send down the thunder Lord, send down the rain
But when you’re plannin’ just how it will be
Plan a good day for me”.

by Don Williams, Lord I hope this day is good.
