Date of Death: January 09, 2023
Sandra Lee Trend was born on August 31, 1946, and passed away at home on January 9, 2023, after a long illness. Sandi was the daughter of Betty Lou (Dye) Ford and her stepfather Rodney Monroe Ford. They had an adventurous life and lived in different states. Colorado was Sandi's favorite location. She loved the mountains and especially loved Clear Creek Canyon. Sandi was a wonderful story-teller and enjoyed sharing her stories with everyone. She loved animals and often talked with fondness about her time riding horses as a teenager with the Westernaires in Colorado. Left to honor her memory are her daughter, Shawnet Lynn Diehl, of Holtwood, Pennsylvania, and her son, David Andrew Bell, of Glendale, Arizona, and her grandchildren Sheridan Claire Bell, Brendan Miles Bell, Garren Ray Diehl and Sirr Lee Diehl. Sandi will be missed by colleagues and friends around the world. She had worked tirelessly for years as an advocate to warn people about the dangers of the biotech industry. Her legacy will live on with the Biotech Awareness website and the many connections she forged around the world. Sandi will be missed and remembered. May she rest in peace.
In accordance with Sandi's wishes, she will be cremated, and her ashes will be spread in one of her favorite places.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Sandi's favorite organization -- the Westernaires in Golden, Colorado, at https://www.westernaires.org/.
RIP Sandi. You will be missed by many. Your endless research and work you did for exposing the bad in the biotech industry has helped many.
You will be missed by many world wide.
I miss you Sandi. I am waiting for my phone to ring so I can hear another one of your fun stories, and we need to catch up on what’s happening with our TV shows. It was always great to reminisce with you about the wonderful times we had when each of us lived in Colorado. It was amazing that both of us spent time riding horses in the foothills and how we both loved Clear Creek Canyon. I will always remember the fun we had sharing stories and how your mom would join in our phone calls. She sure loved those treats I sent, and it was fun to hear about the two of you hiding your favorite treats from each other. I smile every time I think of her calling me by the nickname she gave me. Forever your friend, “Chocolate Cheryl” (the nickname from your mom, Betty)
You will be so missed and to talk to about your amazing life.
Your love of horses and the amazing stories you had to tell about them.
Sincerely appreciate all your passion for helping so many people. You definitely were a beautiful soul to many.
Sending you Love and Hugs to Heaven and know you are at peace.
We Love you!! ❤️
Rest in Peace, dearest Sandi. You will be missed by many activists friends for your support and many hours worked toward injured workers rights and for exposing the truth about the harms from a biotech industry that not only harmed your son, but also many others. You are a light to the world…which still shines on. Peace, Sister.
