Sandra S. (Shaghalian) Gould

June 8, 2018

Sandra S. Gould – (nee Shaghalian) beloved wife of the late John;  loving mother of Philip (Barbara), David (Laura) and Christine (Patrick) McDonough;  proud and cherished grandmother of Lauren, Austin, Stephen, Beatrice and Thomas John “TJ” Gould and Timothy and Patrick McDonough;  dear sister of the late Martha Baldini and the late Donald (Johanna) Shaghalian;  fond aunt of Giovanni “Pucci,” Leonetta, Susan, Elilzabeth “Mickey” and Rebecca.  A Rhode Island native and a second  generation Armenian immigrant, Sandra was proud of her Armenian heritage. The only thing she loved more than a Rhode Island beach was her family. Fiercely loyal and generous, she fostered friendships that lasted a lifetime. She settled in Woodstock, IL in 1977 where she raised her family. She was a longtime employee of Woodstock Memorial Hospital where she served the community for 30+ years.  Our hearts are heavy yet comforted knowing that her loving spirit will live on in each of us.
