Sandra Kirchman Obituary

Sandra (Alex/Raya) Hamilton-Bell-Kirchman passed away peacefully on the morning of Monday, December 4, 2023, surrounded by love, song and humour. Sandra is survived by her loving husband, children, and furbabies: Maggie and Moose. She described herself as: An award-winning writer-with info, writing tips, inspiration & a few laughs-for fantasy-fiction writers/readers-& folks convinced they came from another planet.

Sandra was a vivacious and loving person that found joy in almost all circumstances.  A unique character, her youthful spirit and knowledge of the world reflected her pursuits in life, from chemical technician, to disc jockey at CHQR, to Tarot Card reader, to writer, to publisher, to Guild leader. Always wanting to learn more, Sandra pursued a number of pathways searching for the meaning of life, and in many ways found many definitions of it.

Sandra’s rich inner life came to life in many ways, from her short stories, novels, game-playing, and conversations with her dogs, as well as her ability to take a simple story and make it a literary work of art. Her energy was infectious and before passing, Sandra continued to spread joy by singing holiday carols with nursing staff, and laughing and joking with her husband. Everyone that met her remembered her. Sandra will continue to be remembered fondly, and her energy and optimism live on in her family.
