Willsboro teacher estate gives to Shriners

— Thanks to the estate of Noble Roy and Marge Sandberg, Oriental Shriners Hospital Transportation Fund was able to make $125,000 donations to hospitals in Springfield, Boston and Montreal.

Roy was a teacher at Willsboro Central School.

According to a Shriner’s release, “Roy was a dedicated Shriner and a very active Shrine clown. You could always find Roy at the airport because there would be a group of children and Roy in the center blowing balloons and making animals for the kids. He always competed in the Imperial Clown competition, winning many times, and then would be in the parade on roller skates. Marge would always be along trying to remind him bf all the paraphernalia he needed or left behind. There is a spot in heaven for the both of them.”

They added, “Roy wanted our Transportation Fund to be strong so we could continue in the future transporting children and their families to our hospitals and that he has done. There will be a room at the new Montreal Hospital dedicated to Roy and Marge Sandberg acknowledging their contribution to the Shriners Hospitals for Children.”
