SLOVACK, Sandra Ann

March 18, 1963 - August 3, 2018


A celebration of Sandy’s life was held by a group of her friends and family at the ‘Gathering Place’ in the Comox Valley hospital before and after her death following five years of fighting a brain tumor. Survivors include her Mom and Dad, Bill and Pierrette Slovack, from the valley as well as her brother Roger and his wife Cathy from Calgary and nephews Christopher and Nicholas from Calgary and Cold Lake  and their wives Laura and Michelle and numerous cousins and pool player friend Don. Sandy accomplished much in her short life including a master’s degree in clinical counseling paving her way to helping troubled individuals and families while working at VIHA in Victoria and the Comox Valley for 25 years. She was instrumental in establishing “ The Pursuit of Excellence” program. Wrote and published a “Best Seller” work book to help people regain their self esteem called “Hello You’re Fabulous”.

Volunteer was her middle name as attested by the many friends she had cultivated along the way even when her ailment tried to interfere. In sports she was fearless doing stuff like skydiving, parasailing and swimming with the dolphins. Her four-legged partner “ Taiko “ was with her always. Sandy was reliable and punctual even towards the end with the help of her cell phone, the function of which, she mastered.

We will all dearly miss her smile and go to attitude. She never shied away from a microphone or a stage and reminds us of her first performance at the age of 4 when she sang “I’m just a pretty little Dutch girl, and am happy as can be.”

Donations can be made to the BC Cancer clinic/brain tumor.

Arrangements have been placed in the care of Emma Rimell.
