Sandi Milford Pike, age 69, a 21-year resident of Bolivar, passed away peacefully at her home on Thursday, June 29, 2023. She was met in glory by her precious Lord and merciful Savior and by her loving parents, the late James “Papa Jim” Milford and Shirley “Granny Mim” Milford. Sandi was born on December 16, 1953.
