Sandy, how lucky we were that Nat and Bill and Alice and GW were friends and that they lived near each other on Bartlett St and then in the Googin/Marble street area.
I have so many memories of our early antics. Remember when we decided to be “blood” sisters? We poked our fingers and rubbed the blood together down in the basement on Marble St.
How about that wonderful hill and foxhole next to 100 Googin that is now Richmond Ave? I remember sliding down the hill and crashing into the trees. I always loved picking the milkweeds together and blowing the “fuzzies” everywhere.
My first taste of fresh peas was on the Fourth of July when we raided Grampy Lever’s garden.
Ohh and one taste I would like to forget is liverwurst down at Higgins Beach with Mabel.
Speaking of Higgins , I vaguely remember some “hunk” Lance. I think we both were trying to get his attention.
Then there is Camp Camp Wayaka.🎶 The camping outside night was a riot! We brought forbidden candy, lemon drops I think. You put them under my pillow. Soon after that a giant spider dropped on my face. We spent the rest of the night tossing around every time a pine needle fell down.
As we matured, our times together grew further apart but always united by the strong Lever/ Wade bond. I will miss you my friend. All my love til we meet again.

My deepest condolences to Sandy's family and loved ones. I worked for her many years back is the Dispatch Center of the telephone company. Sandy was smart, kind, fair & very funny as well. She was a wonderful person and will be sadly missed but never forgotten.

To Our Sister Sandra

We shall miss you dearly. You were the most unbiased and unpretentious person we ever met. We marveled at your ability to enjoy the most simple things in life. It was always clear to us that you prioritized family first above all else in this world. Your life was full and robust which you were not afraid to share with all. As your siblings we need to continue to embrace the values you held so highly. God bless we love you.

Your loving brothers and sisters

So sorry to hear of your loss. Sandy always had a smile on her face, a hearty laugh and a kind word to share. I first meet Sandy through my ex-husband and later when our children were in the same grades at Poland Community School.
Everything your loved one was...kind, honest, caring, loving will live on in your memories.

My godmother was the best woman I have ever met in my life. She was so comforting when I ever needed her, she was always positive when I had doubts, she was so loving when I gave up on love, and she was always right there for me whether I needed to talk or even just some help baking. Always with a calm, soothing voice (even when brendon and Shannon had their “differences”) she ran her home with firmness yet so much love. I feel so lucky to have spent the time I did with her growing up, on the farm watching uncle Pat with all his animals (dinner) and even though I had to double up on the allergy meds, the flowers were always fresh and beautiful. Every time I see a wood stove and flour I will always think of my aunt Sandy. Anytime a new baby was born into the family we could always count on her to make them a knit sweater/blanket, and every birthday we all put our orders in for our favorite cake! Most usually asked for her famous Whoopie Pie cake, but my favorite was her Lemon Meringue! Any parties you could always count on her to out do herself with a special show of goodies, and her and I would always talk about what she made and her secrets to getting the right result (I’ll never tell) I am going to miss her so much, I feel such a loss today knowing I can’t call her, but I also know she is without sickness and pain, holding her son again, and that makes my heart feel happy. The Mynahan Family is a strong one and I am honored to have the bond with them that I do. I love you guys ❤️

Pat and Shannon, I want you to know how saddened I am by your loss. I remember Sandy at all the soccer games for PYL you coached, Pat. Your family was so loved by all. God bless you all. Carole (Catherine Booker's mum).
