Sandra Katherine (Wadlin) Upham
1937 - 2018

WINSLOW - Sandra, beloved granddaughter of Katherine Marriner Wade of the Belfast area, passed on June 8, 2018. Sandra was born on Sept. 2, 1937, to Richard L. Wadlin and Doris Roberts. She spent her early years in the care of her grandmother, moving to Waterville her sophomore year of high school, and graduating in 1955.

She married Richard D. Upham on Jan. 11, 1958, and they immediately started their family. They left the great state of Maine for a few years to live in Indiana and Maryland, moving back "home" in 1972 to open Flavorland Dairy Bar, and later Medical Supplies Inc., in Waterville.

Sandy and Dick have three wonderful daughters: Brenda and Gary Zemrak, Kathi and Kevin Michaud, and Missy Gurski and Shane Wade.

Being a grandmother was one of the greatest joys in her life. She is dearly loved by Wes and Moe, Jenna, Mike and Danielle Zemrak, Mackenzie and Kamryn Michaud, and Trevor and Dawsen Gurski. Little did she know that the smiles of her four great-grandchildren, Alina, Grady, Mara, and Isla Zemrak, would bring such happiness, helping her through the roughest of times.
She is also survived by seven sisters: Lyn, Jeanne, Janice, Marjorie, Mary, Maureen, Debbie; and one brother, Alfred, and their families, and many special cousins.

Visiting hours will be Sunday June 17 from 6-8 p.m., at Gallant Funeral Home, 10 Elm St., Waterville. A celebration of her life will be held at 11 a.m., on Monday, June 18, at Moody Memorial Chapel, Route 201, Hinckley. A luncheon will follow at Waterville Country Club, 39 Country Club Road, Oakland.
