Sandra was a proud graduate of Boston University, worked for many years as a medical secretary and retired as the executive assistant to the president of Lawrence General Hospital. She was an avid reader, a skilled Mah Jongg and Bridge player, had many close friends, and loved dinners with family and close relatives at her home. One of the kindest and most intelligent people her family and friends have ever known, Sandra was always the voice of reason and critical thinking, who made everyone better simply through their association with her.
