Sandra Lee Waldrip (Hayes), age 80, passed away Nov 11, 2020 at Thunderbird Hospice
with family by her side. Sandy was born in Kansas and moved to Phoenix in the early
1950s. Sandy attended Phoenix Union High School and maintained close friendships with
several of her classmates. Sandy was adored by her husband, Mel Waldrip, children,
grandchildren and great grandchildren. All of whom admired her strength, kindness and love
for her family. Sandy was part of the early generation of working moms at a time with no
after school programs, cell phones or car pools and yet retired from Motorola where she
never missed an unplanned day of work. Sandy raised and provided for her family with
unflappable determination and grace. She was in a league of her own. The family will miss
her every day and will continue to live life inspired by her memory.
