Sandra K. Wojnar

d. February 23, 2021

Sandra K. Wojnar, of Oreland, passed away February 23, 2021 at Artman Lutheran Home in Ambler. For weeks, trying to recover from Covid-19, Sandra had been asking “to go home” and had her wish fulfilled when she passed peacefully with her daughter holding her hand. Joyfully now in heaven, reunited with her son Noel, oldest grandson Colin and so many loved ones that preceded her in death. Sandra was born of William and Veronica Gerber on June 26, 1944. She is survived by her little sister, Debra Callaghan, her daughter, Melissa Doliner and grandson, William. Sandy, as she was known, worked 40 years caring for others. She began her career as a Registered Nurse in the Emergency Department and the Intensive Care Unit helping to care for her patients while enjoying the fast paced environment. Seeking more family friendly hours, she began working with geriatric residents at Hagedorn Psychiatric Hospital then moved to administration, eventually retiring when she (finally & excitedly) turned 62. In her retirement she loved collecting art work that made her happy, playing slot machines with eternal optimism, traveling with her family, and most of all, being near the sea. Sandy was a really good mom, often reinforcing how important love, strength, humor, caring, compassion and surprises are. Once seeing a sign for a free pony, she pulled the car over and in less than 10 minutes had adopted a new family pet. Sandy was a hard person to get to know, often preferring to be an introvert. Once you got her talking, she could chat your ear off, even more so after having a Long Island Ice Tea. Her life was hard but she never let it harden her. She had many losses but she never lost her love of life. She had many reason to be unhappy but she always chose a smile over tears. For 76 years Sandy walked her path in life, learning along the way that love truly is what is most important. She will be sorely missed. In remembrance of Sandy, donations may be made to The MIP Foundation (PO Box 325, Oreland, Pa), a non profit helping teens in their battle against cancer, started in honor of her oldest grandson, Colin.
