In Loving Memory
SANDRA L. DAY
NOVEMBER 10, 1937 – FEBRUARY 2, 2009
Sandra L. (Davison) Day of Grand Junction, Colorado, the best spouse and mother either side of the Rockies passed away peacefully on a crisp western slope morning.
Sandra was born in St. Joseph, Missouri, and moved with her family to Liberal, Kansas, in 1951. In the early days, Sandra was known as Sandra Davison, later Sandra Grant. Sandra remained in Liberal until 1977 when she moved to Denver, Colorado, where she married Gerald R. Day. Sandra had been residing in Grand Junction, Colorado, since 1990. Sandra lived a quiet retirement the past several years after a life devoted to assisting others in the social services field. Sandra lived and enjoyed life to its fullest and traveled extensively. Sandra was a top notch bowler and made the decision to be a loving wife and mother instead of taking her talent on tour. Sandra shared her love and joy for life with all she taouched and is, and will be missed. Thanks to her years of guidance, Sandra left a legacy that will be carried on for generations to come.
Sandra is survived by her husband of 30 years, Gerald R. Day, who has shared the past 30 enjoyable years in loving matrimony, and, after a career in the transportation industry, has enjoyed a peaceful retirement with her.
Sandra is also surved by a stepdaughter, two sons and a “Sassy Pup.”
Anita Mac Kusick, who has spent a sensational lifetime in social services and marketing, resides with her three children, Angela, Jacob & Kaitlyn, in the California Bay ara.
Wesley Grant, her oldest son, is enjoying a successful life living in Houston, Texas, area working in the oil industry and his three sons, Robert, Adam and Jacob.
Chris Grant, her youngest son, has found success in the field of finance and resides in the Kansas City area.
Sassy Dog assisted Sandra in sharing love as well as many leaps for joy in this cycle of life.
In addition, Sandra is survived by 6 great grandchildren, 3 sisters, Sharon Rogers, Joyce Ross and Patsy Kost, 3 brothers, Willis (Bud) James and Eric Davison and too many nieces and nephews to attempt a count.
The family is having a private ceremony, but appreciates all that have and will contact them in this time of transition.
“MOM, WE LOVE YOU AND ALWAYS WILL!”
