VIENNA, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Sandra C. Bertok of Vienna passed away on Sunday, February 19, 2023, at the age of 80, surrounded by her loving family at Hospice of the Valley Hospice House in Poland.

In addition to being a wonderful wife and mother, Sandy was the financial manager of three family businesses over the decades, including Wagon Trail Animal Park. Working tirelessly behind the scenes, she kept the park running smoothly for over 20 years.
Alex and Sandy enjoyed drives in the country, going for an ice cream cone, reading the newspaper at the kitchen table and sitting on their back porch in the summer.
Sandy devoted her life to her family. Nothing made her happier then cooking big family dinners every Sunday and huge holiday meals. Her children have fond memories of Mom taking them to Farmer Jim’s to swim and Conneaut Lake Park. Her grandchildren had countless sleepovers at “Maunie’s” and Papa’s house.
