Sandra Jean (Britton) Blair

Nov 20, 1946 - Jun 1, 2014

In the early morning hours of June 1, 2014, Sandy passed in her home in Stagecoach, NV while being held by her three children. This ended her very brief entanglement with cancer. She was 67 years of age. Sandra Britton was born in Oklahoma City on Nov 20, 1946 as the first born to Norma Jean and Jesse Joe Britton. Sandy grew up in a military family which resulted in many hometowns in her youth. She landed in Lompoc, CA in her teens and settled and raised a family there for the next several decades. She worked for ITT Business Services for over 30 years. She retired in 2006 and pursued her dream of a little ranch complete with horses, chickens, goats, geese, dogs and cats. She moved to the wild and desolate beauty of the Nevada desert where she called Stagecoach, NV her home for the rest of her days. Sandy held a profound and devoted Christian faith. She was a kind and exceptionally selfless person who always found herself sharing her generous, caring nature. Sandy was an adventurer with a wild imagination. She was bold and intrepid, riding her horses on long solo rides into the desert as well as riding with the local Pony Express reenactment and the High Desert Horseman’s club. Sandy is survived by her three children, Beaux, Joanna and Matthew, her daughter-in-law, Ilsa, her grandchildren, Jesse-Joe, Tristin, Ziggi, and Daisy Grace. She leaves behind her three brothers, Barry, Dallas, and Anthony, and her little sister, Linda. A memorial service will be held at Calvary Baptist Church, 4 Flowery Ave, Dayton, NV, at 1pm on Sat, Jun 28, 2014. Flowers and condolences can be sent to the church before Jun 28, or to 8355 Tahoe Ave, Silver Springs, NV after Jun 28. Sandy’s gravesite can be found in Dayton cemetery, Dayton, NV
