Sandra Lynne Davidson passed away in her home in Calgary at the age of 72 from heart failure on September 11th, 2021. She leaves behind a loving husband, Simon; a sister, Karen; two children, Heather and Mike; and four grandchildren, Amber, Bre, Ashley, and Reilly. Sandra was born in Blackheath, England to Edna Vera and Wilfred Dovey.
She immigrated to Ontario, Canada in 1958 along with her sister and parents. In 1972 she married Ron Craft who fathered her two children. In 1989 they divorced. Later that year Sandra went back to school where she graduated in 1992 from Mohawk College with a diploma in software development. Sandra worked as a software developer for Bailey Controls (now ABB) in Burlington, ON for 12 years before being downsized. It was at Bailey Controls that she met her life partner, Simon.
Sandra and Simon lived together in Hamilton for 10 years before moving to Calgary, AB in 2005. She was a warm and generous soul. She could strike up a conversation with almost anyone at any time. Family was very important to her; she was an amazing mother, and she would often return to Ontario with Simon to reconnect with her children and grandchildren. Sandra and Simon had many memorable vacations including Spain, France, Germany, England, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Newfoundland, British Columbia, and the most memorable of all a cruise that included Australia and New Zealand.
Sandra loved chocolate, pasta, and tea of all kinds, hot or cold. She loved going to the movies or to live theatre. She loved long drives through beautiful scenery. She loved laying in the hot springs at Fairmont and fine dining at Chateau Lake Louise. She will be sorely missed by all that knew her.
