Welcome to the memorial page for

Sandra Louise Tate

June 30, 1955 ~ March 26, 2017 (age 61)

Sandy Tate passed away Sunday (March 26, 2017) at the age of 61 after a courageous battle with cancer. Sandy will lovingly be remembered by her husband of 45 years, Roger Tate as well as her son, Roger Tate, Jr., of Mound, Minnesota, daughter, Michelle Wisegarver (Ben) of Mound, Minnesota. She is also survived by her sister, Debi Greene and Brothers Jerry Stanley (Penny) and Bobby Stanley (Beverly) of Lake City as well as 7 grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews and father, Bob Stanley of Lake City. Sandy was preceded in death by her mother, Marjorie Stanley.

 

Sandy was born in Charleston, SC on June 30, 1955. As the daughter of Marjorie and Bob Stanley she grew up as a military brat and travelled across the country. In 1994 she and Roger moved to Lakeland. Sandy worked at Florida Southern College for 19 years, where she made lifelong friends that loved her like family. Sandy was a member of Church at the Mall in Lakeland.

 

Sandy and her loving husband were very active throughout their entire marriage. From horseback riding to jet skiing, and gardening to remodeling, there was always something new for them to experience together. Sandy enjoyed spin classes, cooking and traveling. She knew how to illuminate a room with her laughter, grace and elegance. Sandy never met a stranger and her larger than life love and personality will surely be missed by all that had the privilege to know her.
