Obituary of Sandy Tillotson

TILLOTSON, SANDY October 25, 1947 - July 5, 2021 It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Sandy Tillotson of Vegreville, Alberta. Sandy passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by her family. Sandy is survived by Newell, her husband of 50 years; their three children Merrilea (Donald) Chin, Becky (Colin) Seck, and Tim (Lacey) Tillotson; grandchildren Mia, Ashley, Mason, Anna, Clara, Sofia and Samantha; mother Nelda Loppacher and siblings Norman (Valerie) Loppacher, Jim Loppacher and Terri (Brian) Tainsch, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her father, Roy Loppacher, sister-in-law Margie Loppacher and grand-nephew Brady Regehr. Sandy was born in Eston, Saskatchewan. She completed her training in Dental Hygiene at the University of Alberta in 1967. In 1971 she met and married Newell Tillotson, the love of her life. She and Newell went on to farm north of Innisfree for 42 years, where they raised their family and became valued members of the community. Sandy enriched the lives of everyone who knew her. She was a talented musician who shared her joy and faith through song at many community events. She worked as a valued colleague at the Vegreville Health Unit for 20 years and later at Lakeland Dental Clinic in Vermilion. For many years Sandy was an active leader in worship and prayer at the Pentecostal church in Vegreville. Her deep love for Jesus was the foundation for her life and ministry. Sandy’s beautiful smile and animated sense of humor sparkled. She delighted wholeheartedly in her family, especially her grandchildren, and is fondly remembered as a fun “Nama,” a lavish cook and a deeply loving mother and wife. The family would like to thank Vegreville home care staff and J.J. from J.J.’s Value Drug Mart for all the support during Sandy’s final days. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alberta Cancer Foundation or your charity of choice. An open Celebration of Life for Sandy will be held at 11:30 am on Saturday, July 17th, at North Pointe Community Church, Vegreville. (4615 Maple Street - formerly the Maple Street Worship Centre). Lunch will follow the service. A private interment of cremated remains will take place at a later date. ***************************************** Please follow the link below to view the Funeral Service for Sandy which was held on Saturday, July 17, 2021 https://rb.gy/vgqsjo Video credits to Pastor Calvin Somerville ***************************************** Please follow the link below to view the Memorial Video for Sandy: https://youtu.be/ZmdmCjurQgY
