Sandy Cox 12/18/1946 - 2/2/2023 Embudo Station Sandy was born in Wichita Falls, Texas to Joe and Sue Hersey. She graduated with high school honors and attended Colorado University. In 1969, she married Preston Cox. In 1970, the mystique and beauty of Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico moved them. While living in Santa Fe, Sandy worked with Preston in the accounting and tax business. In 1983, the couple bought Embudo Station, the last unrestored narrow-gauge railroad station in the Southern Rockies. With love, perseverance and the help of many friends, they built the renowned Embudo Station restaurant and New Mexico's 1st brewpub. A true Texas beauty, Sandy became the restaurant's gracious symbol and hostess, entertaining thousands of guests over the years. She fondly recalled seeing patrons and locals again. "I remember you. You worked at the Station. How many children do you have now?" Recently, she took great pride in her lifelong stewardship and the custodial love she had given Embudo Station.
She is survived her sister and brother-in-law Ann and Raymond Wood, and her sister-in-law Betty Hersey. Her nieces and a nephew include the families of Wendy Wood Hempen and husband Rob, Stacy Wood Hempen and husband Todd, Alison Hersey, Jenny Hersey and Chris and Susan Hersey. Cousins include Charlie Hersey and Robin West of Embudo, and Bill and Steve Hersey. There are 4 grand nephews. Though we miss you, Sandy, and mourn with the heaviest of hearts, we delight to watch your soul soar free. We will see you in the next chapter. A memorial service will be held at Embudo Station at a later date. Thank you, friends, for your kindness and beautiful thoughts now and over the years. The family of Sandy Cox has entrusted the care of their loved one to DeVargas Funeral Home of Taos. www.devargastaos.com 1-866-657-4019
