Sandy lived the early part of her life in Stratford, Connecticut, but with her marriage to Bernie in 1962 moved to her residence in Laurel Beach in Milford, where she lived for 62 years.  Sandy lived her life with a great love and dedication to her family, love of her friends and community, and a devotion to God and the Catholic faith.

Sandy is survived by her beloved husband Bernie and their two sons Christopher Bruder of Charleston, South Carolina and Michael Bruder (Leslie) of Columbus, Georgia, and her loving sister Carolyn Hull.  Sandy leaves a cherished legacy of her four grandchildren: David, Chase, Matthew and Mackenzie.
