Dorothy “Sandy” Withers of Los Altos Hills passed away on October 20, surrounded by her entire family. It was a loving end to a life truly well lived — full of love, laughter, grace, elegance, silliness, nicknames, fun, See’s Candy, and most importantly, friends. She fought against cancer for six years, touching us all anew with how gracious, positive, courageous, and loving she was until the very end. Her favorite phrase was “Until further notice, keep celebrating.” She exemplified that sentiment every day of her life. Her final months were spent in in her favorite places with her favorite people: Kauai with her beloved husband; Squam Lake with extended family; Maine, Virginia and North Carolina with old friends; parties with her dear friends; La Jolla with her immediate family; and various amusement parks, playgrounds, arcades, and candy stores with her grandchildren who would follow their Mimo anywhere.
