Sandra was a loving, caring, and kind person who grew up in North Walpole, N.H. and graduated from Bellows Falls High School. She taught in both the Fall Mountain and Bellows Falls school systems and devoted many years to North Walpole as a village commissioner. She often told her grandchildren that she loved being a commissioner as the commissioner’s office had a secret passage to the village library. She treasured books, reading two or three books a week from the North Walpole Village Library.
Funeral Services and interment will be private. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the North Walpole Village Library or the Fall Mountain Food Pantry. A memorial service will be held at a future date. Arrangements are in the care of Fenton & Hennessey Funeral Home.
