Obituary of Sandra Goralnik

Sandra Joan Goralnik (née Reingold) born on October 14, 1927, predeceased by her beloved husband Barry (d. 2001), hip, glamorous daughter Julie (d. 2008), brilliant son Gary (d. 2020), and extraordinary daughter-in-law Cynthia (d. 2015); survived by her magnetic sister Brenda Mason and adoring grandchildren Nathan, Sara, and Harry Goralnik, who called her "Nana." An impeccable host and generous to a fault, Sandy was like family to a wide social circle who knew her kindness and irresistible charm. Sandy's long life radiated energy and joy shared with her friends and grandchildren. Her rockstar smile and delicious laugh were a treat to those who loved her; Sandy was unfailingly elegant and as charitable as she was frugal. A graveside service will be held at Congregation Emanuel Cemetery on Thursday, September 3rd, at 12:00 p.m. MDT and will be viewable on Feldman Mortuary's YouTube Channel
