Sandra M. Dandeneau – Scituate

Sandra M. Dandeneau, 75, of Scituate , passed away on Saturday, August 18, 2018. She was the beloved wife of Joseph Dandeneau. They were married for the past 42 years.

Sandra loved and enjoyed her family: her sister, Rosalie Harris, her brother’s Gene and Anthony Szwec, along with their wives, Dot and Jan Szwec. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews: John, Kevin and Pam Turner, Scott and Becky Crespi and their children. She also thoroughly enjoyed her in-laws, Carol and her son, Ron Dandeneau, and her niece, Diane, and Len Upham and their son. She also leaves behind many dearly loved friends she remained in contact with throughout her life.

Sandra worked for Peterson Puritan Aerosol for over 30 years. She was a very well liked, reliable and dedicated employee. She enjoyed traveling especially her 1976-month long honeymoon trip throughout Europe along with the many other trips to Hawaii and occasional weekend ski venture up to the mountains in Vermont and New Hampshire. She was also a home body, loving her TV game shows, situation comedies, movies and the like. Sandra was also an excellent cook to the delight of family and friends.

Of all her attributes, she was a profile in courage, unfortunately spending a majority of her mid to adult life dealing with a whole range of debilitating life-altering medical issues that were more than any one person should have to deal with in one lifetime. If there was ever a “Medal of Honor” for fortitude and handicap perseverance she would be at the top of the list of deserving recipients.

At her passing, she would want to express her love, gratitude and affection to all of her family and dear friends that she had the pleasure of enjoying and sharing this life with.

Her funeral will be held on Friday, Aug. 24, at 9 a.m., from the Nardolillo Funeral Home & Crematory, 1278 Park Ave., Cranston, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial, at 10 a.m., in St. Rocco Church, Johnston. Burial will take place in St. Ann’s Cemetery, Cranston. Visiting hours are Thursday, Aug. 23, from 4 to 8 p.m.
