Sandra A. Gravanda (Sande) - Rochester, NY - Rochester Cremation

Rochester, NY: June 17, 2020 at the age of 69.

Sande was born on June 18, 1950 in Batavia, NY. She is predeceased by her parents, Stephen and Jean Acquard and sister Susan Acquard. She is survived by daughters Amy (Alan) Ward and Becky Goodrich. Grandchildren Gabriel, Jaida, Ashton and Talon. Sisters Sharon (Rick) Trauscht, Carol (Kevin) Gill and Brenda (Rick) Jamalkowski. Brother Wayne (Shelley) Acquard and many nieces, nephews and friends.

Sande was employed for many years by Eastman Kodak and later Johnson and Johnson. She was grateful for the chances she had been given and always tried to help anyone who needed it. Her hobbies included snuggling with Dylan, taking care of her cats, donating to charities and telling it like it is.

We would like to thank Dr. Robert Dunne, his staff and the nurses and staff on 5 East at Highland Hospital for taking such good care of her and being so kind to us. Due to the present Covid-19 circumstances, there will be no immediate service, but a celebration of Sande will be held at later date.

There really was no one else like her and she will be greatly missed.
