In Memory




Sandra Jaffe

From: Miriam Translateur Omer

I am so sad to let you know that Sandy Jaffa passed away last night (April\ 28)  I'm in touch with her brother who let me know.  I don't know details yet.

Sandy and I have been good friends ever since 6th grade in Bondhill school & then at Woodward when we were also in the same sorority.  She wrote for the Bulldog Barks & had a fantastic sense of humor.  We always "clicked."

I went to visit her in NY two months ago & that day she said she had the best day since she became ill.  I was so glad that I saw her but, unfortunately, it was also a depressing visit.  She would have been 75 on May 12, but didn't quite make it.

May she RIP.

Her brother who is handling everything seems to be very overwhelmed & just said he would have more information when they will have a memorial service but didn't mention when that would be.  

I just know they are sitting "shiva" (in the Jewish religion after burial the family sits for a week usually to accept condolence visits) at Sandy's house.  If anybody in our class is in NYC & wants to go, I can give the address.

I live in New York City, and for the past five years or more Sandra and I have emailed each other about getting together. Unfortunately, we never did. Talk about regrets. If anyone has plans to do something, don’t put it off. Do it now! My deepest sympathy to Sandra’s family and friends. She was a lovely, talented woman who will be missed by all who knew her.

So sad to hear about Sandra's passing.  Remember her so well from our days at both Wise Center and Woodward.  She was always so nice and caring.

I am so sorry to hear of Sandra's passing.

Luckily I was able to see her at prior re-unions and  have photos of us posing together for the time we had .to say "hello" again after so many years after graduation from Woodward.High School.

She was so nice and friendly to everyone and we all will miss her .
