Sandra Lane Obituary

It is with deepest regret that the Family of Sandra “Sandy” Marie (Temple), Bernier, Lane, Deprisco, age 82, passed on March 25, 2024, after a brief period of failing health. 

She was the Wife of the late Victor Bernier and the late John Lane.  Sandra was also the Wife of Dion Deprisco of Hudson.  Sandra was born in Marlboro, the daughter of the late Leslie R. Temple and the late Marion E. (Perry) Temple. She attended the Marlboro School System. Sandra lived in multiple addresses throughout her life and was welcomed by all.

Sandy worked mostly as a waitress/hostess at multiple restaurants including Leone's of Sudbury, The American Legion of Sudbury, Nick's Diner of Hudson where she worked alongside her mother Marion, Jakes Restaurant of Marlboro, and the former Bronx Lounge of Marlboro.  She also worked as a realtor out of Hudson. 

Sandra was the loving Mother of 3 daughters Suzette (Bernier) Horan and her husband Michael, Deidre Bernier and her Wife Cathie Gebo, Darline Bernier and her friend Jamie Horan, her son Dale Lane and his partner Kris Joyce.

Sandy is survived by and solely missed by her sister Marilyn (Temple) Mahoney of Marlboro,2 brothers, Alfred “Al” Temple and wife Fran of Hudson, Barton Temple and his Wife Cecilia of West Springfield. She is also survived and loved by many Nieces and Nephews who either called Her Aunt Nani or Aunt Sandra. Sandra's best friend and constant companion at Nick's Restaurant and her Sister-in-Law Cathy (Temple) Mitchell.

She was predeceased by her sisters, Joyce E. (Temple) Flint and brother-in-law Harold, Roberta Balser, Lorelei Temple, and her brother Lester (Randy) Temple.


Sandy was always the Bell of the Ball. Loving to dance, even dancing alongside a float in the Marlboro Labor Day Parade while it was traveling down Main Street, going with her sister Marilyn to see different bands in many Towns. She had a favorite Hairdresser of 30 years, Karen of Hair Haven of Westboro.    Sandy loved to sit with Family and friends at special gatherings, taking pictures, laughing, being loud, and just being her wonderful self.  Brother Al says she made the best French Fries when he was young.
