Sandra Elizabeth Matthews

1948 - 2012

Sandra, along with husband Ken, established Matthews Auto Salvage (then called Matthews Motors) in 1973, when they bought a barren plot of land in Gaerwen, Anglesey which had planning permission for a bungalow and garage.

They quickly established a good reputation in the motor trade and soon built up one of the largest Car Breakers yards in North Wales.

They retired in April 2011, handing the business to eldest son Lee, and Grandson Siôn.

Only weeks after retirement Sandra was diagnosed with Cancer and fought the illness for 18 months, passing away in November 2012, just days before what would have been her 64th birthday.

She was an inspiration to so many, and will be deeply missed.

Rest in Peace.
