On Friday, October 20, 2023, at the age of 82, Sandra A. Hales peacefully departed from this world in the comfort of her North Ridgeville home. Her journey concluded with grace as she succumbed to complications from cancer. She was born July 3, 1941 in Oakdale California. A cherished resident of North Ridgeville since childhood, she was a graduate of North Ridgeville High School and she attended Baldwin-Wallace University in Berea for two years. Sandra made an incredible mark on the community. For many years, she dedicated herself to the special education department at North Ridgeville Middle School, leaving a lasting impact on the lives of countless students. Additionally, Sandy shared the joy of working alongside her husband Jim, at the family business, Hales Florist in North Ridgeville. She was an active member for many years of North Eaton Christian Church. Sandra’s green thumb was well-known, and her passion for gardening manifested in the beauty that surrounded her home. A true nature enthusiast, she found solace and joy in the outdoors. Above all else, Sandra loved her family and spending time with each and every one of them. Her favorite times were holidays when she was able to gather with her loved ones. She reveled in the warmth of her close-knit family. Sandy also enjoyed traveling, especially to the Caribbean and Amish Country. Sandra Hales is survived by her devoted husband of 60 years, Jim, and they leave behind a legacy of love and commitment. She is also survived by her children, Greg, Dean and Julie; her grandchildren, Trevor, Kellie, Kaley, Daphnie, Heath, Zack, Molly, Brittany, Jane, and Logan; and her great-granddaughter, Josie. She was preceded in death by her parents, Joe and Nora Cole, and her brother, Gary Cole. The family will receive friends on Tuesday October 24, 2023 from 2:30-4:30 and 6:30-9:00pm at the Liston Funeral Home, 36403 Center Ridge Road (at Stoney Ridge Rd.), North Ridgeville.
