Sandy Schulman 1929-2019
Sandy Schulman died on September 21, 2019 at 11:12 PM at West Hills Hospital. She was 90 years old. As Rabbi Barklay who lead her service said, “Sandy’s death is not a tragedy; it is a celebration.”
Some people pass away, they leave us and it’s premature, permeating us with desolation and grief as we ask why they left us too soon. Yet when others pass, although we may feel moments of overwhelming sadness, we also know that the life they led gives us a sense of completion and a desire to celebrate their glorious life, a life that exceeded their expectations. Sandy didn’t waste a precious moment in celebrating her 90 years of life!
When she walked in the room, she not only lit up the room as we marveled at how wonderful she was, but she had that magic of being able to make us feel wonderful about ourselves. Sandy was a glorious woman…
Sandy was married to Ben Schulman for 61 years. She is survived by her two sons, Randy and Mark, her daughter in-laws, Lisa and Kim, and her grandchildren, Julie, David, Linda, Zade, Alana and Matt.
After Ben passed Sandy did not miss a beat. She made the decision to move into Meadowbrook Assisted Living in 2013, she immediately found the hottest catch in the place and she fell in love again with Lou Schotland who is 97 years old.
Sandy and Ben both grew up in the Bronx and after they married, they moved to Canoga Park, CA and never looked back (east)! Her NY accent stayed with her until the day she died!
At 22 years old, Sandy taught the toughest kids in the NY school system where she grew up. She had these kids wrapped around her finger because instead of fearing them, she loved them.
She worked her way up the scholastic ladder, got her masters and landed a gig at Pierce Community College in Woodland Hills where she ran the tutorial center for 35 years and wrote her book on study skills. Even after her official retirement, she continued to teach just enough hours to keep her pension well into her 70s.
As her son Mark declares, “Every day that I can remember in the last 2-3 years she cried tears of gratitude for her life, family and circumstances.”
Sandy’s eternal optimism, physical beauty, gorgeous spirit, humor and intelligence influenced and inspired the lives of thousands of people.
