Sandra Louise ‘Sandy’ (Chase) Pilares

SHARON — Sandra Louise “Sandy” (Chase) Pilares, 59, of Canton, Conn., passed away peacefully on Oct. 9, 2018, surrounded by her family and friends.  

She was a wonderful and caring mother, daughter, sister, and friend.

She loved spending time in northern California with friends and attending Bob Seger concerts all across the country. Her heart was full of love for her church community, and pride in her family’s history.

She is survived by her three sons, Kyle Christopher of Cambridge, Mass., Jason Thomas of Avon, Conn., and Shawn Michael and his wife, Bethany, of Greenwich, Conn.; her two brothers and their partners, David Chase Jr. and Colleen Hurst and Wallace and Sheila Chase, all of Sharon; and her former husband, Romulo Pilares of Canton. 

She was predeceased by her father, David Rodney Chase  Sr.; and her mother, Alice Marion Chase.
