Sandy was born April 29, 1952 in West Allis, WI to Orville & Lucille (Morser) Washinsby. She was born and raised in Wisconsin and moved to Sauk Rapids in 1987. Sandy married Terry Duffy on Nov. 23, 1990 in Sauk Rapids and was the CFO of Duffy Engineering. She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church. Sandy was a woman of selflessness, class and a strong faith in the Lord. She loved to shop, traveling to see her grandchildren, gardening, and her daily indulgence of chocolate chip cookies and diet pepsi. Her generosity to others was unmatched as she was always there to help, never saying no to anyone in need. Sandy fought her disease with grace and dignity, and did more after her diagnosis than most people do in a lifetime.

Survivors include her husband, Terry of Monticello; children, Chad (Brandy) Elliott of Carrollton, VA, Ryan (Erin) Elliott of St. Anthony Village, Matthew (Cea) Elliott of Lake Stevens, WA, Jaime Huinker (Sean Stockinger) of St. Cloud, Megan Duffy Sananikone (Phosy) of Bloomington, and Mike (Karinda) Duffy of Hanover; brothers, Jeff Washinsby of Racine, WI, Jim Washinsby of Milwaukee, WI, and Dave Washinsby of Milwaukee, WI; and grandchildren, Andrew, Eli, Jackson, Anabel, Isabella, Madison, Hope, Carter, Logan, Ben, Claire, Gray and Lane. Sandy was preceded in death by her parents; and granddaughter, Kendall.
