Obituary for Sandra Bencher

Sandra “Sandie” J. Bencher of Lagrangeville, NY passed away on Sunday, December 13, 2020. She was born on March 7, 1947 to Charles and Mary Pyers in Poughkeepsie, NY. Sandie was the friendly face in the crowd. She loved to start a conversation with the person standing next to her. By the time she would reach the check out at any store, she would know all about them, their family and the pets they adore. One of her favorite things to do was to travel around with her Aunt Margaret and find quaint little towns and more importantly find the perfect restaurant. They could always be heard giggling from across the room. Sandie cherished family and was always the person that brought everyone together. She was a wonderful wife, sister, mother, aunt, niece, cousin and most importantly grandmother. She was a generous and caring person to everyone in her life and was loved dearly. She will be greatly missed.
She is survived by her husband, Dennis Bencher; daughter, Stacey Viano and husband, John Viano, Jr.; son, Eric Csizmar and wife, Michaella Csizmar; grandchildren, Nicholas, Seren, Alexander, Braeden and Chase. Stepchildren, John Bencher and wife Stephanie Reich; Christopher Bencher and wife Betty Tang; Keith Bencher and wife Danielle Merida; step grandchildren, Everest, Leo, Sidney and Julia. Brother, Edward Pyers and sister in law Donna Pyers; nephew, Wayne Pyers; Aunt, Margaret Bielski and cousin, Darryl Bielski. Also, her beloved dogs, Winnie, Tigger and Pooh. In addition to her parents, Sandra was predeceased by her sister Barbara Ann Pyers.
