Sandra Louise Malone was born August 16, 1943 at Davis Hospital in Pine Bluff, Ar. to Donald and Lucille Simpson Bumpass. Sandra graduated from Pine Bluff High School in 1959 and attended Henderson Teachers College at Arkadelphia. Sandra was a life-long resident of Pine Bluff and had many fond memories of her life and friends here at home.

Sandra loved summers, traveling the state with friends and baseball teams, watching her son and team mates play while the parents socialized in the stands. Later in life she was cheering her grandson Ben on through countless fall and spring soccer games. She enjoyed trips to see the Christmas lights at the Capitol with her daughters- in-law and grand-children and long rides in and around Pine Bluff. She also enjoyed lazy summer afternoon trips fishing on the Arkansas River with “her boys” and playing cards with friends in the evenings. She was a very social person who always enjoyed getting together with friends, whether it was for a game of Bunco, or another social event, party, or business meeting.

Sandra was employed twenty-six years with Guaranty Federal Savings and Loan, which later became Savers Federal Savings and Loan, and later was employed and retired from the National Center for Toxicological Research (NCTR) as a budget analyst. She was a member of Federally Employed Women (FEW) where she served as Treasurer; a lifetime member of Beta Sigma Phi FHI International, having served as President, Secretary and Treasurer; member of the DuBocage Chapter of the American Business Women’s Association, having served in various capacities; member of the National Association of Home Builder’s Auxiliary where she was a former officer; and was a member of Carr Memorial United Methodist Church.

Sandra passed away on May 1, 2020 in North Little Rock, at the age of 76, after a lengthy illness at Baptist Springhill Hospital in North Little Rock, Ar. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Hardy E. Malone, Jr.; a step-son, Hardy Malone, III; a brother, Donald Bumpass, Jr.; and a sister, Carolyn Case, all of Pine Bluff.

Sandra is survived by one son and daughter-in-law, Shannon Don and Kim Malone; step-son and daughter-in-law, Phillip and Kandria Malone; daughter-in-law, Gail Malone; grandson, Benjamin Malone; six step-grandchildren; and eight step-great-grandchildren.

Graveside services will be held at 2:00 P.M. Saturday, May 9, 2020, at Graceland Cemetery, with Brother Harold Mitchell officiating. The service may be viewed online at for those wishing to attend in spirit, as well as online registration and messages of condolences for the family.

Prayers to all the family. I knew Sandra through Federally Employed Women and working at NCTR. We had many good times in FEW activities and she was always very helpful in interacting with her at work. I know she was very proud of her grandson Ben. Wishing you comfort and many blessed memories.
