Sandy Doty (1941-2010)

We are very saddened to report that we have lost a longtime, hardworking and devoted Republican activist, Sandy Doty.

Please pray for Sandy’s husband, Quetzal, her family and friends.

We will miss you Sandy.

    She was a legend.

  2. Jeff Weninger says

    Very sad, Sandy worked as hard or harder than anyone I have known in the Republican Party.

  3. This is just an absolute shock. She’s going to be missed by many people for a very long time. All my best to Quetzal.

  4. Tricia Groe says

    She was a great example to us all and will be sorely missed!

  5. This is a huge lost to Arizona – she was an amazing lady with a huge heart….I will never forgot the memories we created in the 05/06 election at the Party. You will be missed…….

  6. Totally shocking news! Just saw her at the last Tea Party at the Capitol. Sandy was an AMAZING woman! I am glad to have known her. What a huge loss for Arizona, and the Republican Party. She will be greatly missed. Prayers go out to her husband.

  7. She was one of the stalwarts of Arizona conservatives, a great help to the Maricopa County Republican Party, someone who got along with everyone. We will deeply miss her.

  8. Debbie Lesko says

    This is absolutely shocking and devastating. I will truly miss Sandy. What a fantastic lady and friend.

  9. Tom Dodson says

    I am heartbroken. GOP events will never be the same without one of our Champions of liberty in attendance. We must carry on her legacy with vigor.

  10. Mel Stradling says

    I was taken by surprise at the news of Sandy Doty passing away. My prayers go out to her family, espcially Lauren Hill.

  11. Sincere condolences to her family…

  12. I was lucky enough to know Sandy Doty. What an absolutely incredible and loving person. Thank you for all of your hard work with the Minutemen Sandy, you are truly inspiring. May the Lord bless you in heaven as he has on earth.

    Marine1 clear.

  13. Gerald Williams says

    The news of Sandy Doty’s death is indeed very sad. Many of us had wished her a happy birthday only a few weeks ago. She will be missed.

  14. Always stalwart & always a friend!

    Let us pray for her soul and family!

  15. I just saw her this past Saturday volunteering on my behalf in Ahwatukee. I am stunned. We will hold her and her family in our prayers. We are thinking of you Q.

  16. One of my favorite parts of going to the EGC each month was to see Sandy; she always gave me a big hug. We didn’t always agree on issues or candidates, but we got a long very, very well. That’s one reason Sandy was so wonderful; she was so easy to like.

    Nobody worked harder for the cause of the party than Sandy. She registered more GOP voters and organized our presence at more events than anyone else– anyone! And she did this all in many cases without help from a lot of people– and she never complained.

    Sandy and I would email each other fairly regularly, and she would keep me updated about her son, who I kept in my prayers as he battled his illnesses. My thoughts and prayers are with Sandy’s entire family at this sad, sad time. She was a great lady, and she’ll be terribly missed.

    But I know this: I’ll be thinking of her as the elections results pour in this November, and when the GOP takes back the Congress, it will be because of people like Sandy Doty who believed in a cause and worked hard for it. She’s gone on to be a bigger servant in a much more important place. And she’ll be missed.

  17. Jan Syverson says

    Sandy, I admired you from afar and looked up to you as a mentor. What a great leader you were and inspiration to not only me but to all of Arizona. I am heartbroken. Just heartbroken. Quetzal, we all have our arms around you now. God hears your tears, and ours.

  18. Laura Knaperek says

    I have known Sandy for many years and have always admired her dedication to conservative principles and her hard work to make them possible. God’s blessings to the family. She will be missed.

  19. Dan Nichols says

    As so many have voiced before me, Sandy was a tireless, giving, loyal and positive friend and colleague over many years. Her absence already leaves a big hole in my heart. May God enjoy her as much as we have. Fly home with the knowledge that we will be strengthened by the fond memory of you on our shoulders as we continue your mission!

  20. Steve Yarbrough says

    Sandy was an amazing person. She was a godsend in so many ways. A dear friend. A lover of our Constitution. A true American patriot. I will miss her so much. Quetzal, I pray God’s peace and comfort for you and your family.

  21. Sandy was standing on the sidewalk last week collecting signatures and talking about the Constitution.

    an amazing woman

  22. Sandy helped keep liberty alive. A sweet, tough, kind lady; she will be missed.

  23. Oberserve says

    Sandy, we will miss you.

  24. Few people leave a legacy like Sandy’s. There will be a hole in the GOP effort where her tireless efforts and great attitude used to flourish. Rest in peace. You will be missed.

  25. Elizabeth J. Rohn-Nelson says

    Sandy was everyone’s favorite – a solid, hard working Republican and always a LADY!
    My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

  26. Al Leibowitz says

    I was shocked at the news. Sandy will be missed. She was a wonderful person and a dedicated Conservative Republican. My prayers to her family.

  27. Jay Tibshraeny says

    Sandy was a tireless worker and advocate in District 21 and I enjoyed working with her over these past eight years. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.

  28. Marsha Atkin says

    Sandy was my hero. She was the Secretary for LD 21 before me and like Thomas Jefferson said when he took over a position that Ben Franklin had occupied…. “I’m not his replacement, I’m just his successor”. Nobody can replace her. Her enthusiasm and hard work will be greatly missed. Our prayers go out to Quet and family.

  29. What a kind wonderful soul. I met Sandy at the Crossroads of the West Gun show, she came to the first AZ Second Amendment Sister shoots, just to support us. She was everywhere, fighting the good fight.
