With great sadness, we announce the passing of Sandrea (Sandy) Bernstein, 63, of Acworth, formerly of Smyrna, May 20, 2021. Sandy was laid to rest at Crest Lawn Memorial Park, just up the hill from her parents Bill and Joyce Bernstein, in a service officiated by her cousin, Rabbi Lydia Medwin of The Temple. Sandy grew up in The Temple in Atlanta and loved her Judaism.
Sandy was a fighter until finally losing her 12-year battle with cancer three weeks after her 63rd birthday. It has been said that some people are good most of the time, but Sandy was good all the time.
Sandy is survived by her brother Chuck (Marsha) Bernstein of Acworth, nephews Larry (Kristin) Bernstein of Grayslake, IL and Andy Bernstein of Norfolk, Va., as well as three great nephews and one great niece. She loved her family, staying in contact with as many cousins, aunts and uncles as she could. She was an accomplished artist with major subjects being Judaica and cats.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society, Congregation Etz Chaim in Marietta, or The Temple in Atlanta. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
