In memory: Sandy Brug

Sandy Brug, 67, of Windsor, passed away Feb. 23. Sandra Joyce Brug was born in Windsor on June 22, 1951, to Phillip Brug and Lydia (Weinmeister) Brug. She attended Windsor schools and Colorado State University, where she graduated with honors with a B.A. in social sciences.

Sandy worked at Morgan Library at Colorado State University for 36 years. In 1997, she suffered an unusual medical event that left her using a wheelchair. This didn’t stop Sandy. She continued working at the CSU library until her retirement in 2011.

After retirement, Sandy spent countless hours volunteering with the Windsor-Severance Historical Society, the Town of Windsor Museum and Windsor-Severance Fire Museum. She played a significant role in the Historical Society’s recent commission of a bronze statue to be placed in Boardwalk Park honoring the pioneers of Windsor. She also served on the Town of Windsor Parks, Recreation and Cultural Advisory Board.

Sandy is survived by her sister, Kathy Moore; nieces and nephews, Craig Moore, Cheryl Stimson, Ron (Kim) Derr, Steve (Joan) Derr, Alan Derr, Dean (Jill) Derr, and Carrie (David) Synder; numerous great-nieces and nephews; “The Cousins,” Ruth, Roger and Judy Firestien; and her beloved dogs Toby, Gibbs and Abby.
