Kathy Myria Sand

February 27, 1965 ~ December 6, 2020 (age 55)


It is with saddened hearts the family of Kathy Myria Sand 55 years, of Saskatoon announce her passing at her residence Porteous Lodge, Saskatoon.  Kathy was born in Saskatoon on February 27, 1965 the youngest child of four to Edwin and Viola (nee Diebert) Sand.  After attending school in Bruno, she worked at Columbian Industries in Cudworth. Due to the challenges in her life Kathy was unable to live independently so in 2004 she moved to group home #1 in Humboldt and worked at Futuristic Industries.  Kathy loved being outside with her pets and had a special bond with her cat “Kickie” and the family Dachshund named “Killer” both whom brought her great joy and laughter.  Kathy enjoyed the simple things in life and found pleasure in dining out with family or bowling with her friends at Futuristic Industries. In October of 2018 Kathy moved to Porteous Lodge in Saskatoon. She quickly adjusted to her new home and was affectionately referred to by her care team as - “their baby.”  Kathy will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered by her three siblings:  Rhonda (Robert) McInnes of Lethbridge, AB and family Collin McInnes of Lethbridge, AB and Kevin (Jayne) McInnes of Edmonton, AB and children Chael and Emma;  Ron (Wanda) Sand of Bruno and family Devin (Melissa) Sand and children Zaine, Alexandrea and Ryker of Humboldt and Ryan (Kelsey) Sand of Bruno and children Ava and Aidan; Wendy Meyer and family Kendra (Michael) Robertson and children Lila, Ethan and Theo all of Saskatoon; numerous cousins, aunts, uncles and friends. Kathy was predeceased by her parents Edwin and Viola Sand, brother-in-law Cyril Meyer.  A Private Family Graveside Service was held at St. Bruno R.C. Cemetery presided by Fr. Pius Schroh.  Interment followed.  

My face may be different

But my feelings the same.

I laugh and I cry

And I take pride in my gains.

 I was sent here among you

To teach you to love

As God in heaven

Looks down from above.

To Him I’m no different

His love knows no bounds.

It’s those here among you

In cities and towns

That judge me by standards 

That man has imparted

But this family I’ve chosen

Will help me get started.

For I’m one of the children

So special and few

That came here to learn

The same lessons as you

That love is acceptance

It must come from the heart

We all have the same purpose

Though not the same start.

The Lord gave me life

To live and embrace

And I’ll do as you do

                                             But at my own pace.
