1942 – 2023


In Edmonton, after a stroke, Sandra passed away with her daughter Jennifer at her side. 


She leaves to mourn, her children Jennifer Olafson (Dennis), Stefan McLean; her stepchildren Jeff  Riddle (Vicki), Andy Riddle (Gail), Casey Riddle (Cherie) and Claudie Riddle; ten grandchildren; three great grandchildren. She had so many close friends whom she loved as family. 


Sandra is predeceased by her loving husband John Claude Riddle. They were married for an amazing 20 years. Claude was the love of her life. She is with him and all the Westies that they had together. 


Sandra was so strong, fierce and determined. She kept connections going from all walks of her life. She always lit up the room with her smile. 


There will be no service by request but friends and neighbours will be invited to join the family at a reception of remembrance. The reception will take place on Saturday, August 12 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Jennifer and Dennis' house.  Sandra’s request was to have entertainment by Francis Sinatra and a rum and coke toast by all to celebrate her life


The family wishes to thank Sandra’s many friends who stood by and helped during these trying weeks. You are loved.


In lieu of flowers please consider a memorial donation to Westie Rescue of Canada
