SPRINGFIELD, IL- Sandra L. "Sandy" Provart, 72, passed away Thursday, June 26, 2014, at the Regency Nursing Care in Springfield.

She was born in Coulterville, IL, Aug. 3, 1941, the daughter of Lawrence and Mary Parlier Darrough. She married Ronald W. Provart in Coulterville, Feb. 12, 1965. Sandy earned her bachelor degree from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and completed postgraduate studies at the Illinois State University at Normal, IL.

She enjoyed needlepoint, latch hook, and knitting over the years. She was an avid St. Louis Cardinal Fan, but mostly, a lady of deep love for her family and strong faith.
