Andover — Diane L. “Bubbie” (Bean) Sandberg, 70, died on Saturday, September 28, 2013, surrounded by her loving family. She was the wife of the late Chester Sandberg.

She is survived by her loving daughter and son-in-law, Colleen and Steven Colby; her cherished grandchildren, Moorea, Noah, Chloe, and Sophie Colby, all of Andover; and her childhood friends, with whom she maintained lifelong friendships.
