My Cousin

TONAJ, Sandra Marie Peacefully at home on Monday, December 10, 2007, in the loving arms of her family. Our precious "Angel" has returned to the Heavens and to the welcoming arms of her grandparents Katerina and Anton Tonaj and Aurore and Irenee LeClair. Her parents Pauline and Martin are forever grateful to God for allowing them to have loved Sandra unconditionally for the past 40 years, and for having her love for them go on endlessly. Sandra is and always will be the centre of her parents' lives. Sandra lived her life from one special occasion to the next and always ending with her Birthday, which is August 12, 1967 (in case you should forget). Sandra made loving her so easy as she was always ready to make everyone she met her friend and greeted everyone with a huge smile and infectious laugh. Loving her forever are her sister Susan and brother-in-law Joe Iannuzzi, nieces Christiane (Derek), Laurie, Kimberly (Darcy Burchell) and nephew Gregg (Brianne). Loving, adored baby sister of Monica and Larry Pratt (the late Michael Connelly), nephews Sean (Brittany) and Kyle (Kailey). Lovingly treasured by her brother Mark, sister-in-law Debbie, nephew Daniel, nieces Eryn and Devon. Precious sister to Paul and Cindy (Levie), niece Rachel and nephew Brandon and Cindy's children Serena, Candice and granddaughter Laura. Sandra was the most adored niece of Anne and Iggy Krampac, John and Jackie Tonaj, Rosaire LeClair, Moe and Irene LeClair, Charles and Olga LeClair, Henry and Marion LeClair and their families. Sandra had many special friends in her life who visited and spent endless hours playing match games, puzzles, colouring, doing homework with her and watching movies. Thank you, Perry, Stefani, Justyne, Christine Ashley and all her caregivers and medical staff over the years. Sandra's love of life and her family kept her fighting against all odds. Sandra gave great joy to all who called her daughter, sister, aunt, niece and friend. Sandra's parents and family wish to thank everyone who shared in Sandra's life. We invite all of you to join with us and share your special memories and stories of Sandra in the Celebration of her Life at MARKEY DERMODY FUNERAL HOME, 1774 King Street East (at Kenilworth) on Wednesday from 2-5 and 6-9 p.m. Prayers will be held at the Funeral Home on Wednesday at 8 p.m. Funeral Mass will be Celebrated from Incarnation of our Blessed Lord (Barton at Nash) on Thursday, December 13, 2007 at 9:30 a.m. Interment to follow in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.

Fly with the Angels, Sweetie." Love Mommy and Daddy.
