Sandra (Sandy) Rogers Stott
November 2, 1939 ~ January 5, 2022
Sandra Rogers Stott, our beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, wife, and friend entered Heavenly Fathers arms on Wednesday, January 5, 2022, at the age of 82 after a brief illness.
Born in Moab, Utah, on November 2, 1939, Sandra was the middle-child of 9 children born to Clarence Mace Rogers and Reva Marinda Washburn Rogers of Blanding, Utah. Raised in the beautiful red rocks of San Juan County, much of Sandra’s early life was spent on horseback or working the family’s livestock and ranch. She never lost her love for horses and always had them throughout the years. She adored watching and feeding them snacks but her early years of ranching with her “Daddy” made her (in humor) say she “never wants to get on the back of one of those damn things again!” Her youth also consisted of honor-roll academia (she was smart as a whip) and even a stint as a stock car racer! She may have been known to do a burn-out or two with us kids in the car.
Sandy was a faithful and active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where she loved to serve. She served as the organist for many years and was a talented pianist who gave lessons to the local youth. She was employed for decades by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in The Church Office Building of which she retired. Growing up, the house was often filled with the amazing aroma of home-baked bread and cinnamon rolls in addition to her famous chili-beans and clam chowder; Navajo tacos were a special treat shared at family get-togethers. One of her favorite things to do was to drive around on a Sunday afternoon to share these delicious treats with friends and ward-members.
Sandy was first married in the 60’s to Glenn Trueblood. She absolutely adored children and was lucky enough to adopt two baby boys at this time- Matt and Todd. A separation and Glenn’s passing led to Sandy being a single mother of two boys which was no small task, but Mom’s strength was unwavering, and she pressed on. It was at this time that Sandy met the love of her life, Shan Stott. Her marriage to Shan led to him, adopting Matt and Todd, and a subsequent move to Layton, Utah which brought her family of two, to a blended family of 7! Together, they added two more babies (Christal and Mitchell) for a total of 9! Much like her mama, Sandy “loved her babies” and her babies are what she lived for. In Layton, Sandy made many endearing friendships; her friends will certainly miss the many nights of playing cards, dominoes, and pinochle!
Sandy is survived by her loving children- Matt (Lisa), Todd (Darcee), Christal Smith (Paul), Mitch (Jessica), as well as - Shan “Eddy,” Larry, Jerry (Angenette), Donald (Leonie); multiple grandchildren and great-grandchildren whom she loved and cherished.
Sandy was preceded in death by her loving husband, Shan Stott, parents, (“Daddy”) Clarence and (“Mama”) Reva Rogers, her brothers and older sister.
Watch over your babies from heaven, Mom; we will miss you dearly!
