Sandra Dayman, born September 29, 1946, passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 8, 2014 in her family home of 37 years in Cranbrook, BC surrounded by her loving family, after a courageous seven month battle with ovarian cancer.
Sandra was born and raised in Regina, Saskatchewan. She met Doug in 1964. They fell in love and eventually moved to Cranbrook in 1974. Sandra worked for the Cranbrook School District. She devoted her life to her family and never missed a chance to see her children play in countless hockey, basketball and softball games. The last ten years provided some of the happiest times for Sandra caring for her grandchildren, golfing, entertaining at their home in Phoenix, AZ and shopping at the Fashion Square Mall lovingly referred to as her “Office!” Sandy’s legacy is one of love, humour and effortless giving. Her family will miss her dearly.
Sandra is survived by her husband of 48 years Douglas Dayman, their three children Ryan Dayman, Julie (Kurt) Luttmerding and Kimberley (Mark) Seeley, her beloved seven grandchildren Taylor and Jordyn Dayman, Isabelle and Brady Luttmerding, and Katelyn, Abby and Tyler Seeley. Sandra is also survived by her sister Joan Marshall and her brother Dean Tidball of Regina.
Our family would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Dr. Pamela Chu and her team of doctors and nurses at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre in Calgary. We also would like to express a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Lenz of Cranbrook for his support and compassion throughout our difficult journey.
At Sandra’s request, there will be no funeral service. Those wishing to make a memorial donation in
