Sandra is the last of the six children of William and Frances Hodge of West Fairlee, VT. She attended West Fairlee School and Thetford Academy. She was a cook at Camp Norway on Lake Fairlee and at CRREL in Hanover, NH. She was married in March of 1967 and moved with her husband to Hudson, NH for 13 years, East Peacham, VT for 24 years, Olathe, KS for 14 years and finally to Bradford.
She was an avid gardener and reader and loved camping especially at Lake Groton, VT and the Maritime Provinces in Canada. She was involved with the Peacham Historical Association and served as a docent at many of their functions. Among her friends and family, she was known as a merry thief of wild elderberries and bittersweet. Though never apprehended by authorities, her generous gifts of homemade jellies and wreaths were enjoyed and will be missed by many.
Her family is grateful to the staff at DHMC for making her last days comfortable and peaceful. Arrangements are by Hale Funeral Home in Bradford, VT.
