Sandra Bellisle Obituary

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our dear sister, Sandra Eileen Bellisle, of Neepawa, MB, on January 1, 2024.  She was 62 years of age. 

Sandra was born at Shoal Lake, Manitoba on August 12, 1961.  She was the eldest child of Audrey and Harry Vryenhoek.  She grew up on the family farm in the Birtle Municipality and enjoyed helping with the farm chores and especially milking the cows.  She had a great fondness for the milk cows and liked everything “cows” her entire life. 

After graduating high school, Sandra held many different jobs, all being in the food service industry.  Sandra moved to Neepawa in the mid 90’s and began working at Springhill Hog Plant, which later became HyLife.  While working there, she met her future husband, Don Bellisle.

Sandra and Don were married for 17 years, and during that time enjoyed travelling, taking many trips to eastern and western Canada together.  They also enjoyed spending time visiting with family and friends. Sandra was always up for a road trip with family members.

Sandra loved the outdoors, doing yard work, gardening, and using her Kubota utility tractor. She also enjoyed cooking, baking, crafting and preserving her garden produce. Another favorite pastime was browsing the thrift stores looking for a bargain.

Sandra was in the process of retiring and looking forward to being home, completing her house renovations and working on her many projects.  At Christmastime she told everyone that next year we would all be receiving a homemade gift, be it woodworking or sewing. 

Sandra was predeceased by her husband Don, parents Harry and Audrey Vryenhoek, and mother-in-law Ida Bellisle.

She leaves to mourn, her sister, Sally (Brad) Williams, her niece Tiffany (Cole) Redpath, great nephew and niece Camden and Charlotte Redpath, her nephew Jim Williams, her brother, Abraham Vryenhoek, her sister, Sharon Vryenhoek, as well as many cousins. Also mourning her passing are her step-children Donnie Bellisle, April Millan, Christopher Bellisle, Desirae Bellisle and their families and her good friend Christine Bellisle. 

In honour of Sandra’s wishes, a private family graveside service will be held at a later date. 

If friends so desire, donations can be made to The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba.

White’s Funeral Home, Neepawa, in care of arrangements.
