Colleen Elizabeth Sande

In Loving Memory Of

Colleen E. Sande

March 8, 1931 –

June 13, 2004


She was our dear wife, mother, grandma, aunt, and friend to many. Colleen was born on March 8, 1931 in Grande Prairie, Alberta and passed away suddenly in hospital on June 13, 2004.


Predeceased by brother Eddie in 1942, and by parents Ed and Eva Whalen in 1975. Survived by husband Ray, sons Ernie (Teresa), and Alan; daughter Patricia (Bruce) and grandsons Daniel, Christopher, Jeffrey and Stephen, of Terrace, B.C.; brother Harold (Evelyn) of El Cajon, California; nieces, nephews, and many friends.


Colleen came to Terrace in 1939 as a young girl to make her home and life, and lived in Terrace for almost 50 years. She returned to the valley she called home in the late 1980’s after an 18-year adventure in the Yukon and Northern B.C. Colleen’s last 15 years in Terrace were spent surrounded by friends and family. She was always to be found in attendance at school, music, and sporting events watching her grandsons.


With many friends and family, and active in volunteer work, she will be missed by many.


A memorial service was held at the Sacred Heart Parish on June 18, 2004 with Father Pier Pandolfo officiating. In memory of Colleen, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Forever in our hearts.
