Kathleen Sandigo lost an 18 month battle with cancer on October 21, 2012 one day before her 67th birthday. Kathy was a devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. Preceded in death by her parents Stephen J. and Ann Vlahovich, and her sister Carol Martinez. Beloved wife of Alex Sandigo, loving mother of Steve and Todd, and cherished grandmother of Lea and Rowan. Also survived by her uncle Bud Ravizza, her nieces, daughter-in-law Lisa, numerous friends and family.

Kathy was a lifetime Sunnyvale resident, who attended Sunnyvale High School class of 1963. She spent much of her career with non-profit PACE in Sunnyvale and had a caring heart for autistic students served by the programs, paying special attention to events in their lives. She was supportive of her two sons, a patient and loving grandmother who not only spoiled but nurtured and guided. She was the center of our big extended family habitually keeping everyone together. Always willing to listen, help and be there when you needed her most. Incredibly strong she helped her sister through years of cancer before suffering through it herself.

She loved to travel and spend time with her loving husband at their cabin in the mountains. She was very grateful for her friends in the ‘breakfast club' who offered much needed support and laughter throughout the tough times. She possessed many distinctive qualities of kindness, dedication, sense of humor, selflessness and had the biggest heart. She took solace in her last days being around her family, many friends, trips to the casinos and her special relationship with her granddaughter Lea. Kathy will be deeply missed and loved forever by all of us. The family would like to thank Dr. Tai for all his hard work with the family over the years.
