Visitation with family and friends

May 11, 2022 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Sandra “Sandy” Jean Slaymaker passed away surrounded by family on the evening of May 4th, 2022. Born the 23rd of August 1949 to Calvin Albiston Nelson and Shirley Jean Jarrod. She grew up with four sisters in Sandy Utah. She attended Jordan High School, and in her younger days, she had an early interest in mechanics. She enjoyed working on vehicles with her father and her husband Lester who just passed two years ago.

Sandy had a very active social life and enjoyed hanging out with her friends and attending street dances. She loved driving her 1972 Ford Highboy “Ole Blue” anywhere she could. Restoring Ole Blue has always been a big passion of hers. She was always smiling and easy to talk to. She was a mother to anyone who needed her. Sandy was the type of person that would give you the rest of her drink if you were thirsty.

She was a single parent for most of her 6 children’s lives but fought hard to raise them to become good people. She did a damn good job of taking care of her kids with what little she had. Not only her kids but she made sure to take care of all her grandchildren and great-grandchildren as well. She was a great caretaker and took care of her ailing father for the last ten years of his life.

Preceded in death by both her parents, Calvin and Shirley, and her daughter, Kimberly Haddow, who passed away early in her life.

She is survived by her five children: Deena Cook (spouse Doug Cook), Michelle Haddow, Travis Haddow (spouse Melynda Haddow), Loren Slaymaker, Ryan Slaymaker (spouse Amber Slaymaker). Twenty-Seven Grandchildren and Eighteen Great-Grandchildren.

A viewing will be held Wednesday, May 11, 2022, from 5:00-7:00 P.M. at the Larkin Sunset Gardens, located at 1950 East 10600 South, in Sandy Utah. A celebration of life will take place later this year.

Sandy was such a fun loving person to be around. She sure did always make you feel welcome. If you needed someone to talk to she was always there. She treated me like I was one of her children.
Forever in our hearts, she will be greatly missed.
My condolences goes to all of the family.
