Sandra was born in Ogdensburg, NY on January 12, 1952.  She attended St. Mary’s Academy until 1969 and graduated from Ogdensburg Free Academy in 1970.  She married Bob Halpin on April 28, 1973 at St. Mary’s Cathedral.  During her working years she worked for the Ogdensburg City School District, Claxton Hepburn Medical Center, The Solid Waste Disposal Authority, and retired after 21 years of working for the Department of Social Services.


Sandra was always on the go her whole life and was devoted to her husband, kids, and grandkids.  She never missed a function that any of her grandkids were involved in.  Her favorite times were spent just being with her children and grandchildren.  She enjoyed catching up with old friends on Facebook.  She had a super personality, was loved by many, and found joy in just talking with others.
