Sandy G. Spano

August 05, 1931 - August 18, 2017


Sandy G. Spano, age 86, became the newest angel on Thursday, August 18, 2017 surrounded by her family. Sandy was a long time resident of Laguna Woods, active member of the Bocci Club, Volunteer for the Florence Sylvester Senior Center, Saddleback Thrift Store and Shea Riding Center. Sandy was an excellent cook and baker, who enjoyed preparing meals for family and friends. Sandy loved to entertain, gather with friends at the pool, lunch with the girls and shop. Though, it was her role as a Mother and Grandmother from which she drew her greatest pleasure and strength and has left her legacy.
Sandy is survived by her husband of 67 years, Albert Spano and their 5 children
Rosemary Dolan (James), Grandsons, Jim (Leah), Brendan (Jennie), Anthony,
Frances Pratt (Donald), Granddaughters, Erica Doyle (Andrew), Allison, Peter Spano (Beth), Grandsons, Zachary, Dominic, Jody Duncan (Jim), Vito Spano (Kelli Malone), Brother Salvatore Seidita (Joanne), Nieces, and Nephews.
A prayer vigil and rosary will be held on Thursday, August 24th., at O’ Connor Mortuary, located at 25301 Alicia Parkway, Laguna Hills. The prayer vigil begins at 7:00 p.m. followed by visitation. The family has requested a private burial.
The Spano Family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff of Sunrise Senior Center, Mission Viejo, St.Joseph’s Hospice and the many multitude of Mission Heritage Doctors and Staff for their attentiveness and loving care.
In lieu of flowers, Memorials may be made to the American Heart Association.

    I will always be grateful for the day Rosemary introduced our family to Sandy and Al!
    At a time in our lives, when we were in such deep grief over the death of our son and brother, Sandy gave us such support and love. Along with Al they gave us hope and love.
    We will be forever grateful they were a part of our lives.
    We especially loved her cannolies:blush:!

    The Spanos were like grandparents to me in my younger days, and I always felt loved and mothered whenever I was in Sandy’s presence. The Dolan family and their family by extension gave me comfort and security throughout some of the loneliest days of childhood, and I will be forever grateful to God the Father for sending along people such as Sandy to stand in the gap of this broken world, and be a light to us of the hope of Heaven. I look forward to giving Sandy a great big hug (like the ones she gave me in my childhood) when I finally catch up with her on the other side of Glory!
    Memory Eternal, Sandy!
