      Sandy, formerly of Chittenango, passed away on January 10th, 2021, from complications due to Covid-19, in Auburn, NY. Sandy was born November 17th, 1940 and lived most of her life in the Cazenovia/Chittenango area.

       She is predeceased by her parents, Charles and Aileen Kinney, her sisters Marlene and Sharon, and her daughter Diane Nora. She is survived by her son Steven (Lois) of New Baltimore, NY, daughters Debra Oscila of Auburn, NY, and Laurie Young of Washougal, WA, her brothers, Buddy and Gary, her sister Lee, six grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren, along with many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

    She graduated from Cazenovia Central School in 1958 and attended secondary education through one of her employers, Wang Corporation. Later, she converted her love of interior design and sewing into a thriving business, where she truly enjoyed meeting with her clients and bringing their ideas to life.

    She loved her family unconditionally and instilled within them the gift of hope and vision, for a brighter tomorrow. Sandy also loved musicals, to travel, and dream about the world. She treasured her trips abroad, especially to Ireland, and shared that joy with all of us.

    Graveside services will be held in Oakwood Cemetery, Chittenango, NY in the spring.
