Sandra Kaye Hill, age 79, of Lafayette and formerly of Dallas, Texas for thirty years, passed away on Wednesday, March 23, 2022, at I.U. University Hospital. She was born August 20, 1942, in Indianapolis to the late William Raymond and Elwanda (Grant) Barnett.
After graduating from Broad Ripple High School, Sandy attended Business College. She moved to Lafayette where she worked as an Office Manager for a law firm and later a real estate company. She was an avid sports fan and spent much of her time away from work at the ball fields cheering for her sons as they attended Wainwright and McCutcheon. In 1988, Sandy moved to Dallas, TX, where she joined her brother's business and later the insurance business; she went on to retire from State Farm Insurance. Sandy loved the water and spending time at Butterfield Camp at her parents' cottage on Lake Shafer. She was an artist and loved collecting things. She was an award winning member of Toastmasters and a leader of her Irving, TX Chapter for many years. She loved to travel and to take pictures of everything. She loved family and was the master of birthday cards and special comments on every picture on Facebook. She loved old movies and would always have a movie on at her house, especially John Wayne westerns. She was a Barnett, and so proud to pass that on to her family. Her family was her everything and she will always be their shining star.

(Angela) Hill; siblings, Ronald Raymond (Jodee) Barnett, Debra Sue Foley and Terry Lynn (Scott) Reuter; grandchildren, Jordan (Molly) Hill, Zachary (Brenna) Hill, Paige (Jake) Bledsoe, Katlin (Derek) Marin and Gabrielle (Coty Padilla) Hill; great-grandchildren, Nellie, Harrison, Matilda, Micah, Nora, Stevie, Irving and Archer.
