Saundra 'Sandy' Lee Esquibel, 71, born May 25, 1947, in Boise, Idaho, passed away March 15, 2019, in Pueblo, Colo. Preceded in death by her parents, Robert H and Genevieve 'Ann' (Teter) Myers; brother, Gary D Myers and loving husband, Tiodoro Esquibel. Survived by daughter, Christy Belore and her sons, Austin and Hunter of Pueblo West, Colo; son, Ted R Esquibel of Pueblo, Colo. and pup children, Lily & Sara. Sandy owned and operated Ted's Tire Service alongside her husband of nearly 50 years, Ted. While this was a business she helped build her real passion was art; she was a talented and successful watercolor artist and jewelry maker. Her love of animals, horses in particular, was nearly as big as her gift of gab. Sandy never met a stranger and always loved sharing a good joke! Her best friend, Karin, described her best as generous, kind, thoughtful, compassionate, non-judgmental, a trusted friend, cowgirl and pioneer. Throughout her life Sandy was involved in many organizations from the Rape Crisis Center, to Alpha Mu Delta sorority, the Sangre de Cristo Art Society, YWCA board member, the Watercolor Society, a member of her high school reunion planning committee, and even recently becoming President of her HOA. She was our mother and Mimi always...there are no words to describe all she meant to us. Cremation, Montgomery & Steward Crematorium. Memorial Service, 10 a.m. Saturday, March 30, 2019, in the Montgomery & Steward Chapel. Online condolences,

  1. It is so sad to hear about Sandy passing. She was such a fun person .
    And those beautiful blue eyes what a gal, will remember her always.
    We lived 2 doors down from the Myers on Constitution can still see her riding
    “Paint” he bucked everyone else off but not Sandy.

  2. We are so sorry to hear about Sandy. We will always hold her in our hearts!

  3. Our thoughts and prayers to Sandy’s entire family. We knew her for a short time but she made an unforgettable impression on our lives. Teddy, know that we share in your sorrow at this most difficult time. God Bless

  4. Sandy and I grew up within a few blocks from one another. Her home was the one with horse stables…oh how she loved horses! She was proud to be a member of the East High Class of 1965 and we appreciate her involvement in planning our reunions. I lived away for several years; when we moved to Colorado Springs, Sandy welcomed me with her beaming smile and open arms. She invited me to attend the Lady Eagles of ’65 luncheons. There I have been able to rekindle former friendships…thank you Sandy for being so thoughtful. I already miss your FaceBook posts and I must admit that you made me blush from time to time. I enjoyed your love of art and that of your grandchildren. You were a lovely person and I hope to meet up with you in heaven some day. Siempre con amor y respeto, Beverly Montoya Esquibel.

  5. Sandy will be missed. Enjoyed our working relationship as well as talking about our once family relationship. Rest in Peace lady!!!!

  6. How often does one share 45+ years with a friend and not have a single cross word. That’s the rare kind of friendship I had with Sandy. I have no doubt that she continues her journey, galloping through the heavens with grace and resounding “Yee-haw!” She was always a cowgirl at heart. I cherish the time I had with Sandy. She was special to us all in so many ways and is deeply missed.
    Sending blessings and comfort to Christy, Teddy, Austin and Hunter

  7. Dennis & I send our deepest condolences. Sandy was a special lady, she was always so friendly & loved talking about her love of art. We are very saddened of her sudden passing. God Bless You Sandy, the skies will be even more colorful with your art in heaven. Thank you for your friendship. God Bless your family.

  8. Sandy was a longtime friend and will be missed greatly. We butted heads a few times (we could both be a little stubborn LOL) but always seemed to manage to get things resolved. She worked diligently on the East High reunion committee, always striving to make the reunions fun for everyone. Sandy had a good heart and her love for art and animals knew no bounds. As she would almost always close our conversations – ‘Later Gator’. Rest in Peace Sandy.

  9. I will never forget Sandy. She was such a caring person who always had time for you. All the long talks on the phone and the lunch dates were special.I will love her always

  10. A loyal & fun friend since Jr; High. A listening ear, a caring heart, a helping hand, a healing hug, a cheering smile. I will always be grateful for her friendship.

  11. We are both very sorry for your loss. What a wonderful person Sandy was.
    Your family is in our thoughts.
    Pam and Dennis Markway
