Sandra A. Magazino, age 72, of Wilmington passed away peacefully on Saturday, February 11, 2017 with her loving family by her side. Born in New Orleans, LA, she was the daughter of the late Sidney Bernard and Virginia Bernard DiNicola.

Throughout her life, Sandy was a homemaker and amazing cook, whose specialty was Creole food. She was creatively talented, which she showcased with her beautiful needlework. Sandy was also a talented painter and enjoyed going to the Wine and Painting Nights held at the Senior Center. Sandy was always very active, especially dancing, swimming and doing water aerobics. She loved to go on cruises, where she could be found snorkeling and swimming with the dolphins.
