Sandra (Sandi) Callahan (nee Schilke)

August 17, 1961, To June 18, 2021


It is with profound sadness that the family announces the passing of Sandi Callahan on June 18, 2021, in Winnipeg, MB.  Sandi leaves a legacy of almost 60 years of love, joy, and compassion.

Sandi leaves behind her loving husband of 28 years, John Callahan.  Sandi also leaves to mourn her stepchildren Kaitlyn and Jacklyn, and her grandchildren Brad and Fiona.  She will be lovingly remembered by her parents Francis and Alfred Schilke and her brothers Glenn, sister-in-law Helen, Brother Steve, fiancee Dar and nephews Zach and Michael.  Sandi had a special place in the hearts and minds of her mother-in-law and father-in-law, John, and Rowena Callahan.  Sandi will be fondly remembered by all her friends and family and those who were fortunate enough to touch her life. 

Sandi spent over 30 wonderful years working for Palliser/DeFehr Furniture in Winnipeg.  She received many commendations and awards including The Customer Care Excellence Award.  Sandi was a consummate professional and gave 100% of herself to whatever she endeavoured whether personal or professional.  Her love for life and animals was evident in all that she did, whether rescuing a baby squirrel, taking in a stray dog, travelling through the mountains, fishing, and canoeing. Sandi also adopted a Gorilla through the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund and was an advocate and supporter of many causes that she believed passionately in. when she was able Sandi was always at John’s side, whether working in the shop, home projects, marching in the Labour Day parade, picket line or rallies in both Canada and the U S. Sandi’s presence and impact on all the lives she enriched will be sadly missed and will live on in our collective memories.

In keeping with Sandi’s love of animals, in lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the City of Winnipeg Animal Services Agency in Sandi’s memory

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, June 25, 2022, from 11am - 1pm at Eternal Grace Funerals.


“What we have once enjoyed deeply we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us” Rest peacefully dear Sandi.
