Sandie Bastow

November 22, 1958 to January 22, 2023


It is with great sadness we announce the loss of Sandie Bastow, after a short but courageous
battle with cancer. She left gently and quietly, just as she lived her life.

Sandie was a sweet and considerate woman, generous and caring in every way. Her main focus
was always the well-being of her family, and the thought and care she put into everything she
did improved the lives of those around her, and made us better people.

Sandie is predeceased by her parents Lou and Addie Stratton and her sister Heather Turcotte.
Leaving to mourn her devoted husband of 36 years Derrick, son Jeremy and his partner Judy,
daughter Kelly, and fur baby Rudy. Also, brother-in-law Donald Turcotte, nephew Jason and
niece Courtney, sister-in-law Cynthia Fagan as well as numerous cousins, extended family and
long time friends.

We would like to extend a sincere and heartfelt thank you to lifetime friends Linda Corker and
Mary Tucker for all of the support, kindness and love during this difficult time. It will never be
forgotten. You were very special and she loved you dearly.

The family would like to thank Dr. Roxanne Cooper for her guidance and Compassionate Care
throughout. Your kindness and warmth was a blessing. We would also like to thank Dr. Hurley
Jennifer Codner, Kate Tilly, as well as the wonderful staff at the Miller Center.

Cremation has taken place and there will not be a public service or gathering as per Sandie’s request, but we do appreciate your well wishes

Derrick, Our hearts go out to you and your family.

It is with profound sadness that I type this post as a way to express my heartache, and to say Good Bye to my lifelong Friend, my travel partner my confidant and my Sister from another Mother.

I’ll forever miss you Sandie in so many ways, and now there’s yet another hole in my Heart that will never completely heal.

Yes, Life will go on but it will never be the same without you.

Sandie, I’ll see you on the other side. When we meet again in Cuba, we’ll just pick up where we left off. Sitting in our lounge chairs under the Palm Trees, or feeling the sand in the cracks of our bums. Enjoying our favourite beverage, having an amazing chat while taking in the spectacular view around us.

Until then, rest easy my dear Friend. I will miss you dearly.

Love you.

Derrick and family. Please accept our deepest condolences on the passing of your loving wife. Hold your memories close to your heart and know we are thinking of you.
