Her hope was fulfilled on May 31, 2009, when she helped to welcome Davis Olivia Mapes into the world. By her friends and co-workers, Sandy will be most remembered for her amazing ability to make and maintain a friendship. While everyone she met was a friend in her eyes, she had a very close knit circle in Albuquerque that she cared for dearly. Her family will remember her for her incredible generosity and willingness to give everything she had for them. She will be sorely missed. Sandy is survived by her husband Jim; daughters, Andra and Kim; sons, Wesley and Spencer; son-in-law, Douglas and his daughter Layne; and her granddaughter, Davis Olivia.
