Sandra Lee Daly Burton
Our loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend left us to be with her Heavenly Father on June 4, 2022.
Sandy was born to Seibert Willis (Zeke) and Nadine Gower Daly on June 11th, 1943 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Sandy’s first few years were spent in Bountiful, Utah with her Father, Mother and her beloved brother Michael. Early in life the family moved to Elko, Nevada where she grew up and had many adventures. She loved riding the ranch on her horses, Dynamite was one of her most cherished. She had many loved ones, family and friends that gave her so many wonderful memories. She graduated high school in Elko and moved to Salt Lake City to attend Steven Henager College. It was during this time she met her husband Bruce. After their first date, she told her friend that he was the one that she was going
to marry. They married on August 7th, 1965 in Elko, and were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. They were married for 57 years.
Sandy and Bruce settled in Cottonwood Heights, Utah. Where she raised her children to love, laugh, and work hard. She always put hard work and heart into every job that she did, ranging from cleaning homes and working at Bella Vista Elementary while her children were young, then later working with her husband in their business. She spent 11 years working at Ballard Medical before she retired.
Sandy loved to read, and was an avid Harry Potter fan. She also enjoyed cross stitching and loved to make quilts and blankets for loved ones. Many friends and family have quilts she made, and felt the love she put into them. She liked to spend time listening to music, watching her movies and shows while drinking a cold Tab. She loved animals and spoiled our family pets. She enjoyed family trips to Southern Utah, meeting up with family members that she treasured and loved beyond measure.
She welcomed many into her home for visits and chats, enjoyed and loved her neighbors and felt like a bonus mom to many of her children’s friends. Being a Grandma and Nana brought her so much joy. She loved to spend time with her grandkids, and was very proud of each of them.
Mom always rooted for the underdog, stood up for the little guy, and had a sense of humor that carried us all through. We will miss her everyday.
She is survived by her husband, her children Eric (Jaimie), Amy (Jason) and Susan. Grandchildren Cassidy, Brandon, Justin, Emma, Shelby and Jacob.
Preceded in death by her parents, her brother Michael, her sons Steven and Brent.

So sorry to hear about Sandy’s passing. She suffered for many years and is finally free to run, jump, and do so many other things that she has not been able to do for a long time. I pray that the family will feel the encircling arms of the Savior’s love at this time of your loss. We have been friends and neighbors for close to 50 years.
Chuck and Nancy Rose
You have my condolences for your loss.
