Sandra Lebowitz SteinbergClarks Summit May 5, 1948 ~ January 24, 2019 Date of Service: January 28, 2019
Sandra Lebowitz Steinberg, 70 years old of Clarks Summit, passed away unexpectedly while visiting family in Colorado.
Born in Scranton, she was preceded in death by her generous and loving parents, Harry Lebowitz and Tillie Goldstein Lebowitz and a brother, Barry Lebowitz. She is survived by daughter, Hilary Steinberg and fiancé, Jeffery Palmer, Clarks Summit; daughter, Jaimee Mulder and adoring granddaughter, Emma Mulder, Denver. Also survived by her companion, Steve Rosenberg, Scranton.
She was a graduate of Scranton Central High School, completed her undergraduate degree in education at West Chester University and received her Masters of Education from Marywood University. Sandy began her teaching career at Greenbelt Elementary in Baltimore, Maryland. She went on to teach at both private and public schools and retired as a Special Education Teacher from Abington Heights High School.
Sandy knew how to guide her students to discover their strengths and made each of them feel like they could conquer any of their goals. She guided them with love, kindness and patience. She truly lived to better the lives of her students. Her open door policy, infectious laughter (and snacks) always filled the room with joy.
Sandy’s greatest joy was truly her family, friends, and her students. If the degree of a life is measured by their impact on others, Sandy lived an incredibly full life. Her spirit is carried on by anyone who knew her.
She would want you to remember her with a smile full of life, decked out in her bling and laughing.
Family and friends are invited to attend a graveside funeral service Monday at 1pm in the Dalton Jewish Cemetery 105 Shoemaker Road, Dalton by Rabbi Daniel Swartz and during the period of Shiva on Monday 6-8pm, Tuesday 2-4pm, and 6-8pm at 125 Greenbrier Drive, Clarks Green.
The family has kindly requested that donations be made in honor of Sandy’s love for her Jewish Heritage and desire to someday see Israel, in her honor to the Jewish National Fund Tree Center 42 East 69th Street, New York, NY 10021 in memoriam of the selfless life she lived.
