It is with an abundance of love that our mother, Sandra Lorraine "Mumsy" Gothard (nee Hargrave), has passed on peacefully after a brief illness at the age of 71. She died comfortably at home at the Village at University Gates in Waterloo on September 9, 2019. She joins our father, Brian, days after their 44th wedding anniversary. She also joins our brother Paul and
her parents Marie and George Hargrave.
Hers was a life lived fully, with great humour, bravery and determination.
She leaves behind her daughters Alison (Shin) and Gillian (Allan), five grandcats, brothers Peter (Lise) and David, nieces Nicole and Tara (Mary), and nephews Andrew and David. Born in Acton, she raised her family in Newmarket and spent her last few years in Kitchener-Waterloo.
Thank you so much to the staff of the Village at University Gates for going above and beyond in your love and care for our mother and our family. Your friendship and kindness has gotten us through many difficult times, and it touched us deeply that so many of you were able to visit her in her last days of life and shared hugs, laughter, and tears with us.
Sandra was cremated and a Celebration of Life will be held at Williamsburg Dedication Centre , 1541 Fischer-Hallman Rd Kitchener on Friday October 25th, 2019 at 2;30 PM . Doors open at 2 PM.
In lieu of flowers, we request that donations be made to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada. Messages and condolences may also be left for the family at tricitycremations.com
