Sandy Staples

Dec 30, 1959 ~ May 13, 2017

It is with great sorrow and sadness that we announce the sudden and tragic passing of Sandy on May 13th, 2017. Predeceased by her mother Sylvia Bedford. Sandy is survived by and will be greatly missed by Barry, her loving husband of 37 years, her children; Ben and Alissa (Sophie and Abby), Kelsey and Jamie (Oliver), Garrett and Ciele (Jayda and Avery), father, brother, sisters, large extended family, students, co-workers and many many friends.

Sandy has lived in the Comox Valley since she was ten years old. She graduated from Vanier in 1977 and married Barry in 1980. She raised her three children and went on to work at Courtenay Elementary, Cumberland Middle School, and Lake Trail Secondary School, teaching ESL and learning assistance. Sandy has been a prominent figure in Courtenay’s dance community for many years and will leave a notable hole both on and off the stage.

There will be a celebration of Sandy’s life at the Florence Filberg Centre, Saturday June 3 at 1:00pm.

In lieu of flowers, accepting donations to the Sandy Staples Memorial Bursary in Performing Arts.
