It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Sandra LeBlanc-Cosentino, a beloved mother, grandmother, and friend, who left us on September 10, 2023. Born on February 19, 1949, in Gardner, Massachusetts, Sandra was a cherished beacon of warmth and resilience.
Sandra was a vibrant soul who spent over three decades serving smiles along with meals at Olsen's restaurant. Her dedication to her work was only surpassed by the love she had for her family, friends, her dogs, and hobbies. She found joy in the simple act of crocheting, the thrill of playing games on her iPad, and the warmth of good company. But the twinkle in Sandra's eyes shone brightest when she was with her grandchildren, each moment with them a cherished memory, and each memory a treasured keepsake.
Sandra's legacy of love and resilience continues in the hearts of her loved ones. She is survived by her children, David Richard, and his wife Nikki of Orange, Renee' DuVerger, Angel Maki, and her husband Roy, all of Westminster and Corey Walker, and her husband Bill of Charlestown, NH; her 11 beloved grandchildren: Heather Kinosian, Maxwell Struthers, Allen Rhodes, Stephanie Coutu, Lisa Marois, Jeremiah Maki, David Donahue, Jefferey Bailey, John Oja, Emily Oja, and Chloe Prentiss; and her ten precious great-grandchildren. Sandra is preceded in death by her parents, Richard and Virginia Lavigne; her husband, Edward LeBlanc; and her brother, Louie Lavigne.
Sandra's life was a testament to the fact that, in the words of A.A. Milne, "How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard." Her spirit will forever live on in the hearts she touched, and the life she celebrated every day.
We invite you to share your memories of Sandra and upload photos to her memorial page. In doing so, we keep her memory alive, her stories told, and her love still felt.
A celebration of Sandra's life will be held at a later date.
