In Loving Memory of Sandra Lebowitz Steinberg

Sandra Lebowitz Steinberg

Clarks 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.

Arrangements and care provided by Carlucci-Golden-DeSantis Funeral Home Inc., Dunmore.

Dear Famly,

Sandy and I were best friends for a long time. We shared an Aunt and though not blood relatives we always called each other CUZ. I am shocked and saddened to learn of her death. He surprise messages to me were always warm and full of love. I loved her. Like you, I'll miss her. May her memory be a blessing.

Hilary and Jaimee,
Your mom was one of my favorite cousins and I was shocked to hear of her passing. Growing up (as little kids) we spent many happy and fun hours in Duryea with Aunt Minnie and Uncle Isador (especially car rides with Uncle Isador)!!! My heartfelt condolences. She was taken much too soon.

Hilary and James,

First, let me express my sincerest sense of condolence and loss at Sandy’s passing
We had been friends for most of our lives, and,although we didn’t see each other frequently, we shared a strong bond.
Sandy was as good and kind and happy a person as anyone could be lucky enough to call “friend”.
I will miss her often and celebrate her life always.

We extend our deepest condolences to Sandy's family. I taught in the same school district as Sandy, taught her children & was a close-by neighbor. I will always remember her big smile & cheerful voice. Whenever she saw me outside at our house on Beverly Dr. when she was driving by, she would always stop to talk.

Education has lost another great educator.
