Obituary: Sande Strong

DELRAY BEACH — On July 2, Delray Beach lost a legend.
10745963481?profile=RESIZE_180x180Sande Strong, owner of Sande’s Restaurant — “where the locals go” — always had a smile, a kind word and a quick wit for those who came to Sande’s for a meal. She was 79.
Jim and Sande worked side by side every day of their 53 years of marriage. She will forever be his “Lulabell.” They made an amazing life for themselves and their children.
The community benefited greatly from their generosity over the years with donations of money, meals and time with the Elks Club, Mark Garretson memorial fishing tournaments and many other organizations.
Sande’s greatest legacy was her children. Their independence, strength and zest for life made her proud every day.
Sande is survived by her soulmate and best friend, James Strong; her sons, Geoff and Kevin; her two daughters, Kim and Shayne; seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Lorne and Sons Funeral Home, 745 NE Sixth Ave., Delray Beach was in charge of services early in July.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made to the Alzheimer’s Association.
