SANDER -- Howard Sander passed away quietly on Thursday, August 5, 2010. Howard was born in Duluth Minnesota on April 30, 1922. At an early age working in his father's bicycle-lock-and-key shop, Howard developed a talent and passion for understanding how things worked and for fixing things that didn't. Soon after the end of WWII, having served as a Chief Electronics' Mate in the Navy, Howard made what he later called "his best find ever" when he met Florence Harris on a very lucky blind date. Florence and Howard were married while Howard was attending college at the University of Wyoming. After receiving his Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, Howard joined Sandia National Labs in Albuquerque where he worked for 32 years before retirement and was remembered not only for his many technical achievements, but for his clever sense of humor and his ability to help others enjoy themselves. Whether it was a Sandia Lab's group holiday party planned by Howard or a costume party with singing around the player piano at his home, he loved to see others having fun. Hard-working, always cheerful and warm of heart Howard lived a life that was devoted to his family and friends. Howard is survived by Florence, his loving and devoted wife of 60 years; by his loving children, Cindy and Craig; daughter-in-law Cara; son-in-law Andy; and by his grandchildren Carly and Mason. The memory of his generous, warm presence lives on and comforts those who miss him. Graveside service will be held on Sunday, August 8, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. at Congregation Albert Cemetery, Fairview Memorial Gardens, 700 Yale Blvd. SE. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the hospice center at Presbyterian: http://phs.org/PHS/Foundation/Donate/Cornerstone_Donation/index.htm.

SIVAGE -- Nancy Sharon Sivage, age 61 of Albuqeurque ("Nanny" or "Nanny Girl" as she was referred to by her close friends and family) passed away August 4, 2010. Nancy was born February 16, 1949 in Morton Texas. She was raised in Portales, New Mexico until her adult years when she moved to Duncan, Oklahoma. She spent the last few years of her life in Albuquerque under the care of her family and in residence at Brookdale Place. Nancy was a special needs child who loved life - and loved her family even more. We pause to remember the joy she brought to everyone who knew her. We will always be blessed by her unconditional love and our lives are so much richer for the opportunity to be a part of her life. Nancy loved many activities. She was very accomplished as a special needs child having won several medals in the Special Olympics. But she really just enjoyed participating in various activities with her family and friends. Nancy loved to bowl, dance, work on crossword puzzles, play the organ and to go to the movies. She could watch the same movie over and over with the same enjoyment the last time she watched it as the first time - John Wayne and Elvis Presley were her two favorite entertainers. While Nancy was young she was boy crazy and jumped at any chance to meet a new boy or to dance with him. Nancy is survived by her brothers, David and wife Ella Sivage, Richard and wife Pam Sivage and Wayne Sivage. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews. We will miss her greatly. She was preceded in death by her loving father and mother, Herbert and Viola Sivage. We can now rejoice in knowing that she is reunited with them today. Funeral services and burial will be held in Duncan, Oklahoma, where she will be reunited with her mother. Family will receive friends from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. Friday at Daniels Family Funeral Service, Wyoming Chapel. The Sivage family wishes to express our special thanks and gratitude to the wonderful staff at Brookdale Place. Thanks for the love and support you provided Nanny and her family. Those who wish to express condolences may do so at: www.danielsfuneral.com Nancy's care has been entrusted to: Daniels Family Funeral Services 7601 Wyoming Blvd, NE Albuquerque, NM 87109 (505) 821-0010
