December 2, 1945 ~ June 18, 2018
Sandra Assad "Sandie" born in Quincy Massachusetts in 1945, passed away surrounded by her loved ones at the age of 72 on Monday, June 18, 2018. Sandie, daughter to Raphael and Antoinette Cano was known for her strength, intellect and sense of style. She was married to her best friend and high school sweetheart Art for 51 years where they shared an enduring and unconditional love for each other. Art worshipped the ground Sandie walked on and she never shied away from telling others how lucky she was for having him. Their marriage was one straight from a story book. In the years since they married, they traveled the world together and shared many amazing adventures, including her deep love for Paris. In addition to being a loving wife, Sandie was also a proud mother of her two sons and three grandchildren. Over the years, Sandie spent many hours watching and cheering for her children and grandchildren as they excelled in the activities they loved. Sandie also built a name and established herself as one of Atlanta’s top real estate agents. Prior to that, she enjoyed her years as an elementary school teacher in Northern California. In recent years, Sandie and Art built their dream home in the River Club in Suwanee, Georgia, where they were fortunate to establish numerous friendships for which they were both grateful. Their circle of friends in the neighborhood will forever be one of their greatest combined accomplishments. Sandie adored her group of girl friends. Because of these close knit friends, she lived more in recent years than she ever had and was truly happy. Survivors include her husband Art Assad, sisters Nancy Thomas (husband Danny) and Patricia Cano, sons Jason Assad (wife Stacie) and Ryan Assad (wife Deanna), three grandchildren, Chad Assad, Alexandra Assad and Madison Assad. A memorial service is scheduled at Wages & Sons Gwinnett Chapel for Friday, June 22, 2018 at 11:00 am. The family will receive friends at a visitation from 10:00 am to 11:00 am. In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution in the name of Sandra Assad to the American Cancer Society – Pink Ribbon Classic, 250 Williams Street, Atlanta, GA 30303, www.pinkribbonclassic.org.
