Sandra was born on March 30, 1948 to Darrel Leroy and Geraldine Bigelow in Mesa, Arizona. She spent most of her life in Mesa but enjoyed the many trips with family to visit in Oregon and Alaska. She attended school in Mesa, graduating from Westwood High School in 1966, and later attended Arizona State University, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.

In 1969, she met her husband, Rodney Carl Bowers, and they married the following October at the Mesa, AZ Temple, and they raised four children together. Sandra developed many talents in her lifetime, but found her true calling in being a mother and grandmother. She was a lifelong member of the Church of Latter-Day Saints and always found joy in giving service to her children, family, and friends.

Sandra was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, and her son, Carl Randall “Randy” Bowers. She is survived by her children, Christopher Bowers, Stephanie Bowers and Sharreldine Bowers; her brothers Terry “Pete” Bigelow and Donald Bigelow; six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. 

Pallbearers will be Stephanie Bowers, Samantha Bowers, Sidney Bowers, James Hundley, Leland Oliver, Dulce Oliver, Pete Bigelow, and Kurt Bunde.

    I am sad to hear about Sandra. I went to school with her and we were friends. She was always the sweetest and never sad anything bad about anyone. She will be missed.
