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 Hilary and Family,

Sandy made me a better, more conscientious teacher. She tuned in to the needs of her students and found a way to help them to succeed. Her warmth and smile brought joy to everyone lucky enough to know her.

And you, dear Hilary, are her delightful legacy. Like your mother, you make the world a better place.

I am sorry for your loss, and I wish you the comfort of the enduring love of your beautiful mother.

With deepest sympathy,

Nancy Ann Pryor

What a wonderful friend, what an amazing teacher, what an inspiring person we have lost! Sandy was an amazing person on so many levels. Whatever she did was to perfection. Her daughters, her students, her friends always received the best. Her students loved her and she treated them like they were her own. Sandy I know that you are surrounded angels taking you to the eternal paradise that you deserve so much. You will be greatly missed and you will always have a place in my heart and I will smile when I think of you!

Jaime and Hilary
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Sandy was a dear friend to me for so many years and through so many life changes. I will miss her warmth, love and friendship every day, as well as our weekly, and more, phone calls to keep in touch. She has touched so many of us in so many ways and these wonderful memories will continue.

I was very sorry to hear of the passing of Sandy. Sandy and I shared grade school, Hebrew School, Junior Congregation at Temple Israel, and Central High together. Her smile and personality was electric and infectious. I recall frequently passing her home on Quincy Avenue often and find her and her parents sitting on their porch. I often stopped and schmoozed with her father, who I respected immensely since he always tried to improve and temper my volatile personality. Sandy's passing is a great loss to all who knew her and her memory will be only for a blessing.
