Sandra O. (Foote) Guyette, 75, died peacefully on December 21, 2018, at Helen Porter Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center in Middlebury, surrounded by her family.

After raising their children, Sandra worked outside the home as a preschool assistant for many years. She loved every minute spent with her family.
