Sandra “Sandy” Ferullo, age 77, of Bluffton, SC and formerly of New Canaan, CT, died Tuesday, January 7, 2020 after a long and courageous battle with Parkinson’s.
Mrs. Ferullo was born in Stamford, CT on December 6, 1942 to the late John and Helen Heinlein. Sandy was a graduate of the J.M. Wright Technical School. After raising her four beautiful daughters, she and her sister operated a home healthcare business which provided nurses and home health aides throughout Fairfield County, CT. She later worked as an administrator in home healthcare, retiring after many years of service. She and her husband, Vinnie moved to Bluffton in 2003 and were parishioners of St. Gregory the Great Catholic Church. She was a loving mother who was a kind and caring person and always wanted to make everyone happy. Outside of work, Sandy loved spending time with her grandchildren, holiday gatherings, Saturday yard sale, and playing cards with friends and families.
