    Niagara mourns loss of leading citizen Sandie Bellows

    Local

    On Sunday, Oct. 10, Niagara lost one of its leading citizens in Sandie Bellows.

    Bellows, who at the time of her passing was chair of the Niagara Parks Commission (NPC) and regional councillor for St. Catharines, had quietly and courageously battled cancer for the last few years, all while continuing to serve the public. 

    “Niagara has suffered a great loss with Sandie’s passing,” said NPC vice-chair and friend April Jeffs. “She was a true leader and her hard work and dedication in achieving significant goals throughout her career such as the new power station and her work with the Canada Summer Games will be her legacy. She was a wonderful mentor and friend and will be missed by so many.”
