Sandra Louise Knight

20 March 1950- 15 April 2017

Predeceased by her parents Thomas and Margaret Knight (Small) and brother Brian (2015). Living to remember and celebrate, her loving and devoted partner, husband of 43 years, Georges Erasmus of Yellowknife; brothers Ted (Anne Marie) and Ken (Glenice); sister-in-law Aurora, nephews Brian, David. Matthew; nieces Kimberly, Laura and Patricia, and of course the large Erasmus family that she married into that are too many to name.

Sandra was born in Moreton's Harbour, Nfld, where she did her early education. She graduated from Memorial University of Newfoundland in 1973 and moved to Yellowknife May long weekend in 1974 to begin a social work career with GNWT. She moved to the Ottawa area in May 1986 for Georges' work taking a two-year leave, which turned into a sixteen-year stay. She never lost touch with her roots and dearly loved to travel "home" to Newfoundland. She had a life-long desire to fight for animals and wildlife, becoming a supporter of many animal welfare organizations.

Her wish was to be cremated with no formal service or funeral. However, anyone wishing to make a contribution to remember her could do so at the SPCA or the animal welfare organization of their choice.
