Sandra Deryl Horley

It is with love and sadness that the family of Sandra Deryl (Faulkner) Horley announce her passing on September 13, 2023 in the Valley Regional Hospital, Kentville.

Sandra was born and raised in Forest Home, Kings County. She moved to Halifax to work as a stenographer in the 60s and that is where she met her first husband, Charlie. Following his death, she and Gwyn lived in Halifax for a few years before returning to Forest Home to care for Sandra’s mother, Doris (Turner). They enjoyed skating, attending musical shows and were very active in the church. Following Gwyn’s death, she continued to be active in the ACW and prepared the Sunday coffee.

She was predeceased by her parents, James and Doris (Turner) Faulkner; her first husband, Charlie Horley; her companion of 25 years, Gwyn Phillips, many aunts and cousins; as well as her dear dog, Dixie.
