Sandra “Sandy” L. Frye of Montpelier passed away Wednesday morning at her home, in the company of her husband, David. She was born on June 23, 1948, in Toledo to Clayton and Evelyn (Tabbert) Ansted. Sandy was a 1966 graduate of Northview High School in Sylvania, Ohio. After high school she attended beauty school in Toledo. On June 24, 1967, Sandy married David W. Frye and he survives.

Sandy was a devoted homemaker and loved her children and grandchildren dearly. She also took great joy in her plants and flowers.
