Sandra Schick Obituary

Grandma Sandy, as she was known to so many, passed away peacefully in her sleep in the early hours of June 27, 2023. Sandra was born in Bronx, NY and studied Nursing at Beth Israel Hospital, graduating as Salutatorian of her class.

Sandra worked as a Head Nurse at Atlanta Medical Center for decades. She enjoyed travelling the world with her beloved nephews Kevin Rudich and Michael Cruz and was a dedicated and loving sister to her twin (womb mate as she called her) Eileen Rudich and her big sister Judi Shepard, that she so looked up to and was proud of and bragged about. Sandra never met a stranger, no matter their background, and was known to open her home to those needing help. A true animal lover she was never without a dog or even a duck. But her passion in life was her children and grandchildren.

She is survived by her dog, Paco; her son, Michael Berger; her loving daughter-in-law, Julie Berger; her favorite grandson, Stephen Berger; her partner in mischievousness, granddaughter Jennifer Riley and husband Mike Riley; her first granddaughter, Jessica Berger and special great granddaughters, Alex and Janet Rogers. She is also survived by her dear friend of almost 60 years, Lauren Oppenheim.

A memorial celebration in honor of Sandra will be held Saturday, July 15th at 4:00 pm at the Chestnut Springs neighborhood clubhouse located at: 2477 Chestnut Springs Trail, Marietta, GA 30062.

A private family memorial will be held in San Francisco in the coming weeks, as she wished.
