Sandie Allred Woodard, born to the late John and Mary Allred on April 19, 1944, in Richmond, Virginia. And peacefully passed away on July 14, 2023, in Chesapeake, Virginia while surrounded by her family. With a life filled with love, kindness, and dedication to others, Sandie touched the hearts of all who knew her.

Throughout her blessed years, Sandie exuded a selfless and compassionate nature that she wholeheartedly shared with everyone she encountered. Her career as a phlebotomist and her fulfilling role as a homemaker and mother allowed her to constantly exhibit her nurturing spirit.

Always placing others above her own needs, Sandie embodied the true essence of selflessness and served as an unwavering pillar of support for those around her. She had a heart overflowing with love and found joy in brightening the lives of others. Running the roads with her friends to check on the sick and elderly demonstrated her commitment to making the world a better place, one act of kindness at a time.

Sandie’s life was enriched by her beloved husband, Barry Alden Woodard, who has journeyed ahead. Together, they built a foundation of love, strength, and unwavering devotion. Their love story exemplified the meaning of true partnership and left an indelible mark on both their lives.

Left to cherish her memory are her loving sons, James M. Woodard and wife Laurie, and Kevin A. Woodard. Sandie’s legacy of love extends through her six grandchildren, her five great-grandchildren, and countless extended family members and friends. Her impact on their lives will forever be cherished and remembered.

Amidst the ache of this loss, let us find solace in the memories we shared with Sandie. May her inspirational life serve as a beacon of light and remind us of the importance of putting others first, embracing selflessness, and cherishing every moment we have with our loved ones.

As we bid farewell to this remarkable woman, may we carry her spirit of compassion and service forward, honoring her memory through acts of love and kindness. In doing so, we keep Sandie’s beautiful legacy alive in our hearts forever.

Rest peacefully, dear Sandie, and know that your love and kindness will continue to inspire us all.
A Celebration of Sandie’s Life will take place at Bethany Free Will Baptist Church on Tuesday, July 18 at 11:00am.

So sorry to read of Sandy’s passing. I was thinking about her just the other day. She was an inspirational force at the DePaul laboratory and Hospital. Her kindness will be missed by all who knew her.
RIP Sandy.

I’m going to miss seeing you on Sundays at church and your text messages at just the right moment. You’re home now, with Jesus and Barry, and will never be separated.
