Mandy Irene Beach, 54, of Marlborough, passed away peacefully at Hartford hospital on Monday Sept. 2, 2019, surrounded by her family. She was born Nov. 2, 1965 in Chelmsford, Essex England, to Wayne and Heather (Longmuir) Beach. By the age of 6 she found a stray cat, which she secretly cared for in the woods. As a teenager she worked and cared for horses at a local farm. She used to say, “All animals if treated well, will never betray you.” Thus her devotion to animals became a mainstay of her life. After high school she attended Manchester Community College where she earned a degree in bookkeeping and accounting that landed her numerous jobs, finally working for Restaurant Equipment Paradise. Mandy was blessed with an uncanny ability to reach people in a deep and resounding way. She was predeceased by her mother Heather, and survived by her son Shawn (Brandi Cyr), grandson Bexley, her father Wayne, step mother Ann (Chapman), brother Paul, sister Natalie (Jay Fazzino) brother Carlton (Meegan Bowne), two step sisters Julie and Janette Chapman plus nieces, nephews and of course her dog Rocky. She always maintained that she was born 100 years to late and should have been brought up on a farm. Even so she surrounded herself with those she loved providing care and comfort through all phases of their lives. “The ties of love not even death can sever- sorrow will pass but love abides forever.” Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as ALS, is a debilitating neuromuscular disease. CT has an ALS association which donations may be made to in memory of Mandy at ALS Association CT 4 Oxford Rd. Milford, CT 06460. Burial will be private at the convenience of the family.
