Qualls Sandra (Sandy) Jean (nee Krall)
It is with profound sorrow that we announce the passing of a beloved mother and sister/sister-in-law, and aunt, Sandra (Sandy) Jean Qualls (nee Krall) on April 27, 2015. Sandy passed away peacefully in Dufferin Place in Nanaimo. She had a number of illnesses over the last 10 years but fought them valiantly. Sandra was born September 04, 1941 in Nanaimo B.C.
Sandy was recently predeceased by her older brother Jim Krall in December and leaves behind her loving son Stephen (Steve) and partner Holly in Surrey, B.C., her younger brother Randall (Randy) Krall and caring sister-in-law Janaya and two nieces, Diana Krall, and Michelle Wigmore.
Sandy started working at B.C. Telephone Co. at the age of 16 and also worked for Bell Telephone in Bremerton Washington when married to Donald Qualls. Sandy and Don eventually moved to Victoria for a small period where they worked for B.C. Tel.
They eventually transferred back to Nanaimo where Sandy remained and worked for Telus for a short period of time. Sandy retired to Protection Island and took part in many crib tournaments held by her relatives on the “North End” of the island. Fifteen years ago Sandy moved back to town and settled in a condominium in South Nanaimo. There she would sit out on her deck every day looking out over “The Gap” between Protection Island and Newcastle Island. Sandy was also a great dart player winning many awards. Sandy was extremely fond of dogs, in particular “Desi”. She was very sociable, liked by everybody and had a great sense of humour.
Donations can be made in Sandy’s memory to the Nanaimo SPCA or Canadian Cancer Society.
