OBITUARY

GUENTHER, SANDRA ELLIS, born 10 December 1934 in Danbury, CT, passed away in Golden, CO, 31 December 2001, after a long illness. She was a daughter of the late John Franklin ELLIS and Lou Gertrude HANSON.

She completed her degree in Spanish at Middlebury College and did graduate work at the Universidad de Guadalajara, Mexico. She held a US Eastern Amateur Teaching rating in skiing. She enjoyed playing the piano, and was on the board of the Jefferson Symphony Orchestra for several years.

She trained dogs and showed in obedience and conformation classes in New England and the Denver area. She also taught at Red Rocks Community College and Genealogy at Senior Citizen Rec.Centres.

A poet and author, Sandra wrote several volumes of family history, and visited Prince Edward Island for her research. She was particularly pleased with the party held by Mrs.Scales in her home and the courtesy shown by Mrs.Moyse. She considered their assistance in her research invaluable.

Sandra was accepted as a member of the United Empire Loyalists of Canada and was a charter member of the Descendants of Quakers, on the basis of her documentation of her family ancestry.

Sandra leaves to mourn a daughter, Karina Guenther-DeCounter (Doug) and a son, Christopher J., his wife Terri and their sons, Dylan and Logan Guenther, all of Colorado; sister Lucinda Johnson, her husband Randy and their two daughters, Pati Klein and Elizabeth Anderson.
