Sandra Bagwell Stewart,72, of Laurel Hill passed away Thursday, May 19, 2022 at her home. She was born November 3, 1949 in Richmond County, a daughter of the late Benjamin P. and Joyce Winkler Bagwell.
Mrs. Stewart graduated from Rohanen High School in 1968 where she played basketball. She was voted Most Athletic and after high school she played in woman’s softball league. She loved gospel music and sung with Renewed Hearts for several years. She loved animals and especially dogs.
It is difficult to convey what type of person Sandy was in a few sentences. But those that knew her, loved her dearly. She was a wife, mother, Nana, mother in law, sister in law, aunt, friend and basically was to many people, whatever they needed her to be. We will miss her greatly. But have an assurance that she is with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Though our hearts are broken, we can still rejoice in knowing we will see her again. And we will once again hear that amazing, powerful, God given voice, singing praises to God.
