BELLVILLE -- Sandra Kay “Sandy” Barnard passed away November 13, 2023.

There is nothing Sandy loved more than her family and friends. Her kids and grandkids were her whole world.

She enjoyed the beach and treasured fishing with her family.

Sandy lit up every room she walked in. Her sense of humor remains unmatched and her laugh was undeniably contagious.

To know her, was to love her.

She was preceded in death by her father, Dan Moody; and her grandparents.
