Fiona Campbell I remember that photo. I guess Auntie Isa sent Mum a copy. Poor Sandra died of breast cancer leaving 3 children.
Elizabeth Weaver Fiona Campbell I’m right in saying Sandra had a sister? Maybe she’ll hear about this photo.

Carol Crombie was her sister named Linda? As a child we lived at 33 Farm Road, and there was a Linda Lees who I believe lived with her mother across the road.

Andrea Olsen Yes that’s right Carol.

Fiona Brunetti Yes Sandra had a twin sister, Linda ,an older sister, Rita and a brother Billie..

  1. Awe, I am so devastated that Sandra died so early, I lull myself into thinking all my class mates are going on just like me, but I am so pleased to have seen her look so happy on her wedding day. I recall a day sitting out front of her home in Farm Road, after a day at school, we were 10 or 11 years old then, a group of us including Sandra’s twin sister, Linda. My name is also Linda, and Linda Lees and I had a bit of a falling out at one stage, but Sandra was always the more petite of the two, inclusive and friendly. We were talking girls stuff and I remember thinking that this was the beginning of our growing up, and wondering what our futures would hold. This is the first I’ve seen of Sandra since we emigrated when I was 13, and we went to different High Schools. Rest in Peace Sandra with many thanks for including me in your friendship group way back when.
