1961 Sandra Patel R.I.P.
Sandra Eiffert (nee Patel) (1943-2008) – I first met Sandra when she lived next door to my classmate, Arlyne Meyers, in Green Lane in 1960. Many years later I was in Ilford Maternity Hospital having my second daughter and Sandra was in the next bed to me with her daughter, Ayesha. Forward 5 years and I took my youngest daughter Sarah for her first day of school to Christchurch School in Ilford and there, starting in the same class, was Ayesha. I kept in touch with Sandra until the girls left school, but when I tried to find her in 2009 I was told that Sandra had died the year before. Moral of this story – don’t put off looking for someone, in case you are too late.

I remember Sandra from school too, she was in the same year as me. She was a really nice girl, so sad to hear she has passed on.
I remember Sandra because I was in the same year as her younger sister, Shelby. She seemed really nice, so sad to hear she’s gone.
Sandra Eifert nee Patel was my sister in law. She was born in 1947 and passed away 2007. She was a lovely lady and greatly missed by all her family.
Thank you for leaving such lovely comments of my sister Sandra.
Regards Tara – her sister.
