Tribute & Message From The Family


Sandy Dennison, a long-time resident of Foster City passed away at Mills Peninsula Hospital on April 6, 2020 at the age of 81, after battling an aggressive form of cancer. Born in Long Beach, she was a graduate of Palo Alto High School and San Jose State University. Lived in San Diego and settled in Foster City for the past 48 years. Sandy's passion was to play and teach bridge. She was a member to many organizations and contributed her time to League of Wives POW/MIA, Mission Hospice, and Starlighters' ballroom dance club. She enjoyed spending many summers entertaining on her boat at the Foster City lagoon. Sandy was a constant fixture at every baseball, soccer and softball game for her children and grandchildren as they were growing up. She had strong opinions during those games and wasn't bashful about sharing them. She was fiercely loyal to her family, friends and Miss Kitty and will be missed by everyone who knew her.

Sandy was the beloved wife of the late Lt. Commander Terry Dennison; loving mother of Tracey (Joe) Wischer and Greg (Nancy) Dennison; devoted grandmother of Cassie Dennison, Matthew Wischer, Shannon Wischer and Katie Wischer. She was predeceased by her loving parents, Betty and Donald Brooks; dear brother Doug Brooks and her companion of many years Donald Romey.

She will be laid to rest next to her husband Lt. Commander Terry Dennison at the National Cemetery in San Bruno at a private funeral service for family due to the recent circumstances.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Sandy Dennison to Mission Hospice, 1670 South Amphlett Blvd, Suite 300, San Mateo 94402


Condolence & Memory Journal

We remember Sandy for the good times we shared with Tracey, Greg and all our kids and families together. She was one classy lady and always up for a good margarita. We had some good times with her and Don on annual 4th of July parties and dinners on her Foster City deck. Sandy, You are always in our hearts

I remember many years of bridge nights with Sandy. She was always talking about her grandchildren and loving their sports and school activities. She was so proud of them. She lost the love of her life very early and dearly missed him. United now...rest in peace.

Sandy was a wonderful bridge player. We enjoyed playing bridge with her for many years in our Foster City Newcomers Saturday night monthly game. Rochelle and Al Blair

I have so many wonderful memories of times spent with Sandy and her children while they lived near us in University City, San Diego. Friday nights with all of us having Mexican food in La Jolla and giving speeches with her to inform the public of the plight of the POW's & MIA's. She was fearless and always had a great sense of humor. I will miss her very much!
