Sandra “Bare” Stover Barefield went to be with her Lord Jesus Christ Thursday, August 13, 2020, at Spectrum Hospital Lakeland after a brief illness with her loving family by her side. She was born July 16, 1943, in St. Joseph, Michigan, to K. V. and Marjorie (Casler) Stover.

Sandy graduated from Berrien Springs High School in 1961 and Western Michigan University. She taught Computers at Coloma High School and Berrien Springs High School., retiring in 2006. Her students did not forget her with many keeping in touch with her through the years.

Sandy was an avid tennis player. She enjoyed working in her yard, helping her sister farm, talking with Jayne on the phone, and going out to dinner with Lori and Sonya. She also enjoyed spending winters in her condo in Bonita Springs, Florida. She had a wide range of long-time friends.

A life-long member of the Arden United Methodist Church, she actively served her church in many ways, including being the financial secretary.

My deepest sympathy goes out to the family and close friends of Sandy. I am a Physical Therapist who met Sandy many years ago. She was one of the kindest, most enjoyable motivated individuals I have ever met. She took the time to keep in touch throughout the years. Vi am so sad to hear of her passing. My life was enriched by Sandy.

I was so shocked to read about losing Sandy. She was the kindest, funniest, greatest person I knew. Reading this makes me cry. I worked with her at BSPS and attended many computer classes at SWM and LMC throughout our school years teaching. The world lost a wonderful and kind, super funny person. She will be forever missed. I am so very sorry. Breaks my heart. Rest in Peace dear lady
