Sandra was born, raised, and educated in the St. Mark’s Parish area of Dorchester.

Weymouth, cherished aunt to James Sarhanis and his wife Kim of Dorchester, and Richard Sarhanis of Manassas, VA, devoted great-aunt to Maxwell, Zoe, and Addison whom she loved so very much. Sandra is also survived by her close friend of 60 years Mary Dufresne and her godchild Billy, who has owned a piece of Sandra’s heart since the day he was born.
