Sandi Mae Richardson

Sandi Mae Richardson (nee McEachern)  was born in Carman, Manitoba on  Jan 19, 1955. Sandi spent her first two years in Sperling before Jack and May moved her to their new farm north-east of Carman.   They kindly provided her with six siblings and she quickly learned  how to help look after a large family.   That’s probably where Sandi developed her ability to love and care for people in need.  Graduating from nursing at the Grace hospital in Winnipeg (Class of ‘75) she started her long career in nursing.  She began her nursing career at the Foothills hospital in Alberta but came back to Manitoba as a Public Heath nurse in Morris a couple of years later because she missed her family.   She worked Emergency in Portage Hospital and then experimented with clothing marketing and design for a very short time but soon returned to Carman Hospital and her new married life with Gary.   Even though she was working in a profession that she loved, her proudest accomplishment in life was the births and raising of her two children, Jesse and Carin.  

While raising her children and working,  Sandi took correspondence courses to obtain her degree in Hospital Administration.   She worked very hard establishing the palliative care room in Carman and received a Helen Hudson award in Winnipeg for outstanding achievements.  She worked at Salem personal care home in Winkler for 8 years and finished out her career in Carman as the Home Care co-ordinator.

Sadly and very peacefully Sandi passed away on December 25, 2010 from cancer.   She was never alone; family members were always by her side.  Sandi always knew we were there right up until her time of passing.

Sandi leaves to mourn her husband Gary Richardson, son Jesse and daughter Carin, her brothers and sisters, Gerry  (Lindy Deprez) McEachern of Altona, MB, Lynda (Wes) Wiebe of Claresholm, AB, Bill (Heather McKee) Sperling, MB,  Faye (John) Peckover Homewood, MB,  Scott (Janice Burdon-Murphy ) McEachern Victoria, BC and  Barbara McEachern of Carman,MB, her father- and mother-in-law Jim and Josie Richardson of Carman, MB and many brother- and sisters-in-law: Alan (Gail Johnson),  Joe (Linda Fife), Kelly (Scott McDonald), Rocky (Alice Dykstra) and Tracey Richardson.  She also leaves numerous nieces and nephews: Brennley & Brad McEachern, Debi  (Doug) Hartle, Traci (Richard) Frost & Andrea (Cody) Fletcher, Kyle, Mayghan, Karla and Myles McEachern, Casey, Max, & Zoe Peckover, and Emily and Murphy McEachern, Beau, Jay & Lisa Richardson, Bryce & Stephanie McDonald, Sam, Casey, Bret & Mikaela Richardson, and her aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.  She was predeceased by her parents, Jack & May (nee Findlay) McEachern.

Sandi’s last position was the highlight in her career. Sandi loved and cared about family, friends and her community through nursing, coaching and visiting at her Walnut Street tea room gift shop.  At times she could be stubborn, or should we say determined, to carry out every goal she ever set.  Sandi accomplished each one of them.  Sandi loved her home, her gardening, her little car, always going to or trying some new adventure from the time she got up till the time she laid down to sleep.

Words cannot describe how much we miss you. No more suffering Sandi, you’re in a quiet place.  Forever in our hearts and thoughts; we all love you so much.

The family would like to thank everyone that wrote, phoned sent cards, prayers and were here for Sandi and all of us.  Thank you to the doctors and nurses who cared and looked after our Sandi with such devotion and compassion.  Special thanks to Dr. Woelk and the staff at boundary trails.  To the home care “Girls” -  you all made Sandi proud.   You are a very important part of caring for people with dignity and compassion.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to  Carman Homecare or Paliative Care in Winkler or Carman.
