Sandra Marie Delamater (Sandy), 79, of Savannah, Georgia, passed away Monday, March 2, 2020, at Candler Hospital following a short illness.
Sandy was born on Sept. 27, 1940, at the old Candler Hospital in downtown Savannah. She lived in Littleton, Massachusetts from 1956 until 1972 when she, her husband, and 4 children moved to Savannah.
Sandy was a graduate of Littleton High School, an honors student, honors singer, and budding piano student. She was a member of St. Anne’s Catholic Church in Littleton, Mass, (their marriage was the first one in the new church) and then St. James Catholic Church in Savannah. For many years she was active in the CCW and the choir at St. James.
She was very quick with poetry and hilarious songs and ditties, and often said she had majored in sarcasm!
Sandy is survived by the love of her life, Robert(Bob) C. Delamater, and children Michael R. Delamater, David J. Delamater (and Amy), Sharon L. Delamater, and Robert R. Delamater (and Brenda), and Donna Scott; her grandchildren, David Tucker (and Jen), Erin Delamater, Kari Delamater, Donovan Scott, Deanna Smith, and Elizabeth Scott, as well as a multitude of other adopted grand and great grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her beloved sister, Linda, and her parents, John B. and Dicy L. Graham, as well as many uncles and aunts.
There will be a prayer service at 3:30 p.m., Friday, March 6, 2020 at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel.
Her family requests that all memorials in Sandy’s name be made to Hospice Savannah, or your area Hospice.
We would like to thank Candler Hospital and Hospice Savannah for their tender, loving care of our sweet Sandy, Mom, Mamau during her illness. The love and concern shown to her was both professional and personally incredible and we are forever grateful.
