Sandra Jean (Meunier) Sebring, 50, of Acacia Road, Bristol R.I., passed away on March 27th surrounded by her loved ones following a brief illness and a valiant life-long battle with polycystic kidney disease.

Sandra had the life-long support of her loving aunts and uncles and 18 cousins. She also leaves many, many loving friends including those in her worldwide Facebook community, who inspired her and provided her with much love and support.
Sandra and her family are forever indebted to her cousin Brian Tighe and sister Ann McLean for their generosity as kidney donors, which afforded Sandy many more quality and productive years of life
