Sandra Faye Heath


Orland - On October 22, 2018, Sandra Heath, age 73, passed away peacefully after a long illness, surrounded by her loving family. For those who knew her, she will be remembered for her generosity and her deep love and commitment to her family. In 1962, at the age of 17, she married her high school sweetheart, and together they raised three children, one of whom would remain with them for 53 years. Her commitment to the needs of her very special daughter, Sissy, was her priority in life and she gave selflessly to ensure her well-being.Family was the most important part of her life, and she was truly a force to be reckoned with when it came to them. The oldest of 10, she spent much of her life assisting in the raising of her siblings, while continuing the care of her own children. Her life came full circle when she was blessed with her granddaughter, Emily, and basked in the glory of her love.
Her presence on this earth will be deeply missed, but Heaven has surely gained one of the best. We know she was greeted by all of her loved ones who passed before her, but especially her beautiful Sissy, who surely giggled endlessly when they finally met again.
Sandy is survived by her dear husband and soulmate, Sheldon Heath, her children, Sheldon Heath, Jr., Shelly and Robert Reilly, her stepson Sheldon Cunningham and Aimee Cunningham and her devoted granddaughter, Emily Reilly.
At the request of family, donations can be made to Creative Options, 711 Main Street, Bangor, Maine 04401, c/of Lynn Augustine. An additional request of the family is that for any friend, family member, or stranger reading this to please take time out of your life to visit a loved one. You never know how much your time means to another.
There will be no formal service. Cremation arrangements are by Mitchell-Tweedie Funeral Home, Bucksport, Maine.
