The new about Sandy has devastated me. We were in touch as recently as September. Sandy was one of my bosses when I started in the Clinical Research Department at Merck Pharmaceuticals around 2011. She was an amazing woman and we connected immediately with our sense of humor and strong work ethic. When she left our company, my heart was so sad and I cried realizing she was moving on. You are all grieving now and I hope the day comes when you will be smiling as you reminisce about the amazing person she was and will always be in your hearts. Joanne
Condolences to the family of this highly intelligent and service-oriented woman.
Sandra Storm Vose
Sandra Storm Vose, 76, of Fernandina Beach, FL, passed away on Monday, December 12, 2022, at Community Hospice in Fernandina Beach.
Born on June 5th, 1946, in Dobbs Ferry, NY, to the late Edith Frischmann and Paul Storm, Sandy grew up in Huntington Station, Amagansett, and East Hampton, NY, and graduated from East Hampton High School in 1964. After graduation, she went on to attend Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, PA, graduating with a degree in Biology in 1968. While at Gettysburg she met her future spouse, Charles Richards Vose, III. They were married in 1969, had one daughter Samantha, and spent 53 wonderful years together.
After graduation, Sandy went on to have a very successful career in the pharmaceutical industry, holding several leadership positions, finally retiring from Celgene in 2012. Sandy and Charlie lived in a number of places over the course of their marriage including Barrington, RI; Lower Gwynedd, PA; and most recently settling in Fernandina Beach. Sandy was active in the St. Peter’s Church community, volunteering on the Board of the Charitable Foundation of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church and in the parish office. She also loved to cook and travel, especially enjoying visiting and traveling with her grandsons as much as possible. She also loved to watch sports and cheer on her favorite teams and athletes. Whether it be the U.S. Open tennis matches, Milwaukee Bucks basketball games, her grandsons’ soccer and basketball games, or the lacrosse team her daughter coached, Sandy was always passionately cheering the teams on. But her greatest love was spending as much time as possible with her grandsons, often at a beach. She loved swimming in the ocean with them, teaching them how to ride waves, and walking the shoreline collecting shells with them.
Sandy leaves behind her husband, Charlie of Fernandina Beach; a daughter, Samantha S. Adey, and husband, Matthew J. Adey, and three grandsons, Ryan R. Adey, William G. Adey, and Jack S. Adey, all of Plymouth, MN; a sister, Diane M. Storm of New York, NY; a niece, Christina S. Butler of Morristown, NJ; and a nephew, Paul C. Butler of Hoboken, NJ; and many dear friends whom she considered family. Sandy was known to all as an intelligent, driven, compassionate, funny woman who cared deeply about those around her.
Funeral Services will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, January 14th, 2023, at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Fernandina Beach, FL.
Donations may be made in Sandy’s memory to the Charitable Foundation of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church.
