Passed away peacefully to be with our Lord, on May 23, 2021, at Borgess Hospital in Kalamazoo. Sandy was born February 13, 1943, in Kalamazoo, Michigan, to Ed and Anne Sykora.  Sandy worked for many years as a bank teller. She sold Avon for 18 years, and she worked for GPS Food Stamp Center, where she managed this site until she retired. She enjoyed arts and crafts, painting ceramics, camping, knitting, and crocheting. Sandy enjoyed collecting many things: dolls, coins, Elvis records and paintings. Sandy especially loved her dogs and her horse. She had a passion for animals and shared that with everyone. Sandy was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was married to John Long 9the love of her life) for many years. Sandy is survived by her three children, Kathy Allman - Long, Michael (Gail) Long and Bradley Long (Tara LaFountian); nine grandchildren, Alicia, Tony, Beth, Taylor, Kasandra, Trevor, Brandon, Bayle and Madison; eight great-grandchildren; and special friends, Dolores Doherty, Robert Smitherman and Jean White.
