Clare P. (Ivers) Sandberg – Lincoln

Clare P. (Ivers) Sandberg, 93, passed away peacefully at The Village at Waterman Lake on March 5, 2019.

Her family will remember her tenacity, wit, charm, grace, and how much she cared for them. They will remember her love for the ocean, sailing, a game of Bridge and vacationing. The fond memories of the house in Bristol, New Hampshire, and being poolside in Lincoln, R.I., will carry on. She was a proud career woman, working as a legal secretary for the state of Rhode Island. She was a longtime, active member of St. Jude Parish and a member of Lincoln Senior Center where she spent many hours learning to navigate the world of computers.

This wonderful woman, Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother leaves behind a loving family – her son, John Sandberg, and her daughter, Carol Hay. She leaves behind the spouses of her children, Robert Hay and Dennis Brewer, along with seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

She is happily joining, in heaven, her parents John and Hilda Ivers, her husband Lathom Sandberg, her daughter Elizabeth Brewer, and her daughter-in-law Kathie Sandberg. In typical Clare fashion, even in death, she didn’t leave any decisions up to her family; going as far as planning her entire funeral, leaving only her outfit and this obituary up to the family.

Her visitation and funeral will be held Monday, March 11, 8-9:15 a.m., from the Pontarelli-Marino Home, 971 Branch Ave., Providence, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. in St. Jude Church, 301 Front St., Lincoln.

Clare has asked that in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be made to Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Clare will be sorely missed.
